The paleo challenge should only be the tip of iceberg for the rest of your life. The lessons you learn about yourself and your diet now will serve as precedent when the challenge is over and your on your own. Life has its daily challenges and it can be hard to stay on track with your newly...
It’s 2015! I’m sure you’ve figured that out already, but wow, this year is moving quickly! We’ve noticed that there has been an increase in bad behavior absent-mindedness at the Box. If you want our Box to be a nice place, it’s going to take everyone working...

If you’re new to the box, you might not have picked up on this yet – but Kiwi and Arbel aren’t really in charge. If you need something done, wonder where something is, the person to go to is Megan. She is the glue that keeps LAX running smoothly and is the person who orders...
