Not Jane Fonda’s Spandex


By Katie Thomas Remember your mom’s Jane Fonda workout records (or VHS tapes, if you’re young)? Remember what Jane Fonda was wearing on those album/tape covers? If not, look it up. I promise it’s entertaining…and it’s never too early to start planning for Halloween. I think most of us are thrilled that times have changed [...]

5 Ways to Support National Cancer Prevention Month


By Katie Thomas February is National Cancer Prevention Month. Sauce’s mission of creating products that promote a healthy lifestyle makes cancer prevention something we care deeply about. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that “a person’s cancer risk can be reduced with healthy choices like avoiding tobacco, limiting alcohol use, protecting your skin [...]



By Katie Thomas In these trying times, it can be hard to know what to expect from winter. Is the snow ever going to stick? Should I plan for ice, or slush? Is that green color I see new growth in my yard? Is there any point in shoveling snow in the wind? How long [...]

Spur of the Bone


By Katie Thomas Hallux rigidus. I don’t like the sound of that. What it means is what I found out I’ve got: “A disorder of the joint located at the base of the big toe. It causes pain and stiffness in the joint, and with time, it gets increasingly harder to bend the toe.” In [...]

Get Dressed


By Katie Thomas As I write this, it is 4 degrees Fahrenheit below zero outside at 7:15 AM in Bozeman, Montana.

Hard Sauce


By Katie Thomas It can be challenging to maintain healthy eating habits during the holidays. For example, every year, my Aunt Mary makes a traditional plum pudding with hard sauce for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don’t know why they don’t just call it “fruit-alcohol-suet cake with frosting,” because that’s about what it amounts to. In [...]



By Katie Thomas The Oxford Dictionary of Current English defines recovery as “the action of returning to a normal state of health, mind, or strength.” For anyone who exercises regularly, hard, or both, post-workout recovery is a step not to be skipped. It’s important to take time out of our busy lives to get back [...]

Running Through Water


They say John Colter was a fur trapper who was chased naked by a band of Blackfeet Indians near Three Forks, Montana, in the early 1800s. And I don’t think “they” were making it up; according to Montana’s minimal written historical records from that era, the events are well-documented. Colter was part of the Lewis [...]
