She’s Danced With Kanye, Rihanna, and JLO—And This Is Her Secret Stress Reliever

This week aSweatLife is partnered with N!CK’S, the first and only light ice cream that is actually, truly, creamy. N!CK’s is a Swedish brand that believes healthfulness shouldn’t compromise flavor. Spoon-soft and never icy, N!CK’S has no added sugar and only 220-360 calories per PINT. That means you get a compromise-free healthy and TASTY treat, without the calories. And it’s the perfect way to start summer.

Welcome to the Daily Distance, a new daily series from the creators of #WeGotGoals. In these short episodes, we’re bringing you one daily goal you can set for yourself during this chaotic time- one actionable thing you can do to move your body, connect with a friend, prioritize your mental health, get some work done, and practice a little bit of self-care.

Tash Crudup is #goals. This professional dancer and choreographer has danced with Rihanna, Lourde, Kanye, and JLO, and she also appeared on the NBC show World of Dance in Season 3. She recently launched Lil Vegan Shawty, a resource house for vegan lifestyle including food and recipes, environmental imprint, fashion, volunteering, workout plans and more. She joins Kristen on The Daily Distance to share her recommendation: herbal tea for every occasion. She schools Kristen in what tulsi tea is, why veganism doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing mentality, and what might surprise you about being a professional dancer.
