What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

​When it comes to nutrition problems, most people confess that they probably eat too much. They'll admit that if they could just get their portions under control and stop overeating, then they'll experience the results that they're looking for. 

The most common and obvious methods of controlling portion sizes are:

  • Calorie counting
  • Macronutrient counting
  • "Point" counting


But each of these methods are tedious and life-draining, plus they perpetuate the diet-mentality. There's a much better way to manage the amount of food that you eat that doesn't involve any counting at all. 

On this episode we're going to talk about strategies that help you stay in control of the quantity of food that you're eating without overlooking the quality of the food you're eating. Best of all, it's easy and non-obsessive! 

We also chat about two items on a nutrition label that are important to look for. And how to control the amount of splurge foods that you eat without having to worry about the calories.
