Health + Happiness Recap: Episode 3

This week on Health + Happiness, Joy Bauer and Vivien Williams offer simple tips to help you lead an active and joyful life! Read on for a brief summary of what we learned in Episode 3. In case you missed it, you can watch the full episode here.

How often should you bathe or shower?
Joy hits the streets (aka Joywalking!) to find out what people think (care to place your bets? The answer may surprise you!). And, when it comes to hair care, Joy shares a celebrity hair stylist’s secret weapon for damaged hair using a common kitchen ingredient you probably have in your pantry.

3 Big Meals or 6 Mini Meals?
Joy answers this week’s Health or Hype: What’s better: Eating 3 square meals or 6 mini meals? Joy discusses which eating pattern might be right for you, and shows us some helpful and energizing examples.

From Junk Food to Joy Food
Joy serves up a family favorite: Cauliflower Buffalo “Wings” with Bleu Cheese Dip using easy swaps from a traditional chicken wing recipe. This delicious rendition slashes calories, fat and salt. Don’t worry, though—there’s still tons of indulgent flavor!

Joyful Note
As research continues to show that nature nurtures, Joy and Vivien share their tips for bringing the outdoors in. Vivien suggests picking out a houseplant or cutting flowers to bring inside, and Joy recommends creating a small herb garden in the kitchen to help flavor your meals (brilliant!). Green thumb optional.

That’s all, folks! Wishing you a week ahead filled with health, happiness and a daily dose of Joy! For more Health + Happiness tune in every weekend on NBC (check your local listings here).
