Chef Lee Linton has sliced, diced, and sizzled up countless gourmet dishes for more than 30 years. He combines this hefty culinary experience with his passion for nutrition to craft 1,200- and 1,800-calorie meal plans designed to help health-conscious eaters like himself stay in tiptop shape without sacrificing taste or quality. Linton only uses fresh ingredients, shying away from the frozen, dehydrated, or astronaut-friendly ones often used in other premade meals. The menu, which is approved by an on-staff dietitian, rotates regularly, and meets the guidelines set by the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, the American Dietetic Association, and the American Cancer Society. After Chef Linton and his team prepare the dishes within a USDA-approved kitchen, they’ll ship the meals directly to clients’ homes or prep them for pickup at one of Fresh ‘n Fit’s 37 locations.
By Design Furniture offers to accent homes with sleekly styled chairs, sectionals, and shelves that marry European chic with classic American comfort.

Admire well-dressed reflections in the espresso-enclosed Pasadena mirror ($198), or entertain a date at the Duetto snack table ($118), featuring two stainless-steel arms holding round glass faceplates. Orbed Jensen chairs ($198) beam with retro-futurism, sheathed with plush microfibers harvested from green, black, orange, and red Mork farms.

At Jumpin' Jamboree, kids ages 2–14 can run rampant in the 10,000-square-foot play center brimming with bouncy, inflatable terrain and interactive games, while adults rest easily on the sidelines. Ankle biters can race through obstacle courses, rebound off springy walls and floors, evaluate the anatomical accuracy of a gigantic puffy Spider-Man filled with the air of adventure, all under the watchful supervision of a friendly and attentive staff. Toddler-specific play areas entertain tiny jumpers with size-appropriate surfaces. Dotted with group games such as jumbo-sized checkers and foosball, Jumpin' Jamboree’s diverse spread of activities engages diminutive attentions spans and Lilliputian toes alike. Cable TV and WiFi are provided for parents weary of watching the same children they've seen in countless home videos, and snacks and drinks are available at an additional cost. Bouncers must wear socks at all times on the inflatables, and parents or guardians must be in attendance as their kids attempt to break the giggle sound barrier.
