Life’s more fun when you live it flavorfully—that’s why we pepper our days with dynamic reads, inspired adventures, brain-feeding podcasts, and recipes we’ll cook up as soon as we have the time. Here’s our Friday roundup of the five things we’re into and up to this week:


1. Experimenting | New York Times
The Best Thing You’re Not Grilling
Although we’ll never get tired of the corn, steaks, and other go-to grill favorites, we’re always willing to spice it up and try something new. This week, we learned something really new. Prepare for the most memorable cookout of your summer.

2. Floating | For Those Who Savor
Spicy Hummus Avocado Boats
Avocado is the gift that keeps on giving, and we can’t get enough of it. Here’s a recipe that’ll delight your nautical side while enjoying the comfort of your home on land.  

3. Decluttering | The Kitchn
5 Things to Throw Away This Summer
Is your kitchen looking, sort of… cluttered? Ours is too. Time to toss out that spaghetti-stained container and two-year-old pineapple corer we’ve never used. We’re onto greener pastures (and cleaner countertops). 

4. Transporting | Los Angeles Magazine
Major Changes Coming to L.A.
One of our favorite cities is getting a futuristic makeover and – spoiler alert– it involves driverless cars. We can’t wait to see how LA’s new system will take shape, but here’s hoping for an easier commute!

5. Sculpting | Well + Good
This 30-minute Workout Is Specifically Designed To Make You Sleep Better
We all know the balance struggle that comes with working out, but still wanting to savor much-needed zzz’s. This week, we’re mesmerized by a yoga class that might just be the solution – hopefully no one tests out this theory in the middle of the workout.
