You might recognize him from his contagious pearly white smile, charismatic laugh, and most notably, his deliciously healthy dishes that go viral on the internet. Most of the world knows Kevin Curry as @FitMenCook on Instagram and Youtube. The social media veteran has 1.6 million followers and 563,000 subscribers on YouTube, and he’s now giving his audience more of what they ask for. He teamed up with Amazon to launch a storefront, where he houses all of his favorite kitchen gadgets, pantry finds, fitness gear, and separately, his own brand, The Fit Cook.

Influencers are looked at as brands these days so it’s only natural that his internet fame evolved into launching tangible products of his own. The @FitMenCook brand is all about making a healthy lifestyle enjoyable. “My brand is helping people live a healthier, happier, and tastier life,” Curry tells The Manual. “All my stuff is designed to help people navigate wellness when it comes to food and what you’re putting into your body.”

The first product in The Fit Cook line is a series of gluten- and grain-free, vegan, and keto-friendly spices. From his Everyday Base Blend to his Land and Sea focused bottles, he is filling the space of health-driven seasonings that actually taste great. If you’re a hot sauce fan, then you’ll love the Sriracha(ish) and if you like a combo of zest and heat then be sure to try the Green Chile Lime (we heard this one tastes like Cool Ranch Doritos).

“I created these spices to show people how to flavor food because I don’t think flavorful food and having to be healthy are mutually exclusive,” curry says. The wellness industry gets a bad rep for poor flavor and Kevin Curry is here to bridge that gap. It might not be the woo woo Goop level of wellness, but a more attainable one for your average football-loving, beer-drinking bro. On November 15, he is launching wellness teas to further bridge that gap.

Aside from The Fit Cook store, Curry has his own influencer page where he recommends his favorite tools and gadgets from brands he knows and loves. They are all tried and true, as seen in his cooking videos, which adds another level of trust when you make the purchase because you can see it in action.

One thing the social media influencer-turned-entrepreneur emphasizes is his love for supporting small businesses on his Amazon Influencer page. “Amazon has these amazing small brands out there … and I understand they are business owners just like me, wanting a chance.”  He commends the shopping conglomerate for giving a variety of brands a platform to grow, expand, and gain exposure. “It’s been different being a social media influencer [than it is now as a business owner] because I am building my own brand, which I’ve been so emboldened to do. And now, whenever I can, I am buying into small businesses because I know how it feels firsthand.”

You can shop and subscribe to Kevin Curry’s FitMenCook picks on his influencer page along with his “The Fit Cook” store where you’ll find his spices and wellness tea launching November 15.

10 smoky scotch whisky options to make those fall campfires magical
Our favorite smoky scotch whisky brands for late-summer drinking
Campfire whisky

The end of summer is barreling toward us like a pumpkin spice-fueled locomotive. Depending on where you live, you’re likely already seeing some signs of fall. The leaves are beginning to change color, the days are getting shorter, and Halloween candy is already on grocery store shelves. Fear not, even with the eventuality that is the end of summer, we still have until September 23 to enjoy all that the season has to offer. For us, it means as many backyard campfires as possible before the weather grows colder. It also means we only have weeks left to pair our fires with a glass of warming Scotch whisky.

Nobody will blame you for complimenting the smoky fire by drinking a complex, non-peated single malt Scotch whisky. For those confused about the spelling, most of the world omits the 'e' when referring to whisky. You also might be wondering the difference between Scotch and whiskey. Well, in the simplest terms, Scotch is a kind of whisky (Americans and the Irish still use the 'e'). So that should put an end to the Scotch vs. whiskey debate once and for all.

Take a break from pumpkin beer: The best Oktoberfest beers to drink this fall
These delicious drinks are perfect for crisp fall days
Pint of beer

There are at least a handful of holidays (especially drinking centered holidays) that many drinkers don’t really know the true origins of. We know these are special days in which we drink tequila and Mexican beer (Cinco de Mayo), Irish whiskey or dry Irish stouts (St. Patrick’s Day), and giant pints of malty, refreshing German beer (Oktoberfest). And while we’ll get into the other two when the time comes, it’s Oktoberfest’s time in the spotlight.

Oktoberfest is more than simply a day to wear your grandfather’s lederhosen, drink Marzen, eat schnitzel, and listen to oom-pah music. It’s a two-week festival (the actual party is in Munich) that’s celebrated each fall to remember the wedding of Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810.
