In the Kitchen with Wellness Mats - GIVEAWAY!

You may know this, or have been wondering, and I am here to confirm that I have a very strange job! Some days I work at our home in Lake Forest and I also spend some days in a test kitchen in Northbrook. I work on my blog, I write cookbooks, and I create recipes and videos for RecipeLion. I wear a lot of hats! And, a lot of shoes!


Whether I am at home or in my office I often go between meetings and recipes, photo shoots and cleaning. I sometimes end up in sneakers and oftentimes have to run and check on something in the oven while I am still in heels. Thanks to WellnessMats, my test kitchen (and my home kitchen, pictured above) is super comfortable and very safe.

WellnessMats provide constant, cushioned support under your feet. The soft, smooth surface and buoyant core encourage very, very subtle movements and re-alignments. This subtle activity reduces muscle and joint fatigue as well as stress on the lower extremities. This is not your average anti-fatigue mat, this is a magical kitchen floor pillow!

I first came across WellnessMats when I did a live demo at the Home and Housewares Show here in Chicago. I was cooking on the KitchenAid Culinary Stadium and WellnessMats had a large mat supporting my every move on that stage. I thought it was some custom-made stage mat, because it was SO comfortable, and later found out that it was made by WellnessMats and that I could have one in my kitchen! I was thrilled!

What I love about WellnessMats, aside from how comfortable they are, is how beautiful they are. These are not your average mats you find at Costco, these blend in beautifully with wood and tile floors and look purposeful and placed. I can’t tell you how many comments I have received at home about how they love the idea of anti-fatigue mats but can’t stomach the look. With WellnessMats it is a win-win, comfortable and stylish!

I went with the Linen Collection, and chose the bronze color. I do not know if the photos do this justice, but I did my best to capture how great they look in our test kitchen and in my house! Take a look at the entire Linen Collection here and head over to my Instagram profile for your chance to win a 3x2 WellnessMat from this collection!

Made from their proprietary Advanced Polyurethane Technology (APT), they are made in one piece. What this means is that unlike other mats made from several different materials fused or sewn together, these mats will never delaminate, the edges will never curl, nor will our mats puncture or slide. With a 20-year warranty, your mat will forever remain buoyant and supportive, bringing you years of comfort and well-being (thus the name!)
