June 13, 2017 at 6:53 am

When it comes to pillows, I’m like Goldilocks. This one is too hard. This one is too soft. I’ve spent a lot of time (and money) looking for the perfect pillow. Enter Urban Mattress.

Tried it Tuesday: Safe Catch Tuna #Giveaway

Canned tuna is a great source of protein, but it’s been getting a bad rap in recent years due to mercury levels. Many fit folks, and families, use canned tuna as part of a healthy diet, but the numbers have been on the decline in recent years. Great news!
