Good morning and happy Friday! I’m off on an actual weekend getaway with my mom and maybe this little dude.

Eli - Black Garlic Benefits

Before I go, I thought I’d leave you with some weekend reading. Have I talked about how obsessed I am with black garlic? I can’t get enough, especially lately. This week I even wrote a piece for Fitness about why you should add it to your “must try” list—and what the heck to do with it. Enjoy!

Heading to the movies this weekend? I was interviewed by Self for this story about how Blake Lively gave up all the things to get in shape for The Shallows.

Also, I know it’s still summer, but if you’re doing any back-to-school shopping or planning this weekend, here’s a piece I was quoted in on Health Line about some healthy habits that can benefit your whole family this fall.
