Sumo’s Weekly Wrap Up: 25 July

Weekly Wrap-Up

It’s been a big week here at SumoSalad, with the launch of our 100th Aussie store at Melbourne Central. But it’s not all about us! While we think of salad as the main event, we are constantly looking out for interesting “sides” to add to the SumoSalad experience. Which leads us to…

Introducing our new weekly wrap up of content from the week. This is where we’ll be posting everything we loved this week, including news on health, wellbeing, fitness, recipes and a dose of fun. We hope you find these as interesting as we do, any maybe you can even suggest us a few of your own!

The Huffington Post have compiled a list of fourteen of the worst fad diets in an article this week. The diets include the Cookie Diet, Five Bite Diet and, wait for it, the Tapeworm diet (ick!). We think it’s definitely more important to have a more balanced approach to your eating in preparation for Summer. Healthy food is a friend, not foe! And remember, it’s ok to have a *little* treat once in a while… (also known as an entire packet of TimTams).

Stylerunner Editorial Launch

Luxe Aussie exercise wear site Stylerunner have launched a new editorial look and feel for all of their product shots, adding to their already highly coveted exercise FAHSHUN wear. While we’re not sure we look as stylishly tousled post-workout, we’re hoping our next delivery might come with a little “just been for a run” misting spray to achieve that same glow, minus red splotches and B.O.


Stretching for Lazy People

Regular stretching is just important, if not MORE important, than exercise itself, but sometimes we just don’t get around to it.

Start your weekend on a good note with a few of these easy stretches, as suggested by the lovely team at PopSugar. You don’t even have to get out of bed for them!
