“How can I get a flat stomach?”
It’s one of the most commonly asked questions, yet most misunderstood concepts, of exercise Whether it’s shedding excess weight off one’s midsection or trying to obtain the Holy Grail of fitness (the vaunted six-pack), many people spend countless hours in the gym trying to perfect this one area more than any other. What makes it so difficult to achieve is not a lack of effort but a lack of understanding. I’ll illustrate some of the reasons why getting a tighter tummy has eluded so many, despite great effort..
I am always looking for new salad creations and this one has become my new favorite. It is crunchy, full of flavor and completely satisfying. If you don't like prepping vegetables it may not be the right salad for you but it is worth the work. The salad dressing is a variation of a Cesar dressing without the cheese and packs tons of flavor with only a drizzle. It is also great on roasted cauliflower and other hearty roasted vegetables.
With the cold weather finally setting in I'm tired of cold salads and ready for warm hearty meals. Roasted Sweet Potatoes is super easy and one of my favorites. You can make a few pans of them on Sunday and save them in containers to have during the week. Add them to scrambled egg whites or tossed on a salad to replace croutons. They add a hint of sweetness and are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6.
I'm always looking for new and interesting salads that are not lettuce based. This recipe that I found in The Sprouted Kitchen is just that. I replaced the milk in the dressing with soy milk and added a few things to bring out more flavor. Try this recipe for your next lunch or dinner and serve with a grilled piece of fish for a full meal.
We all know some of the benefits of exercise for women-improved strength, cardiovascular health and stress relief. But what about weight training for women? What are the specific benefits that weight training can offer that other types of exercise (i.e. running, biking, walking, and other types of cardio specific training) do not?
I first tasted this dressing on a seaweed salad at a Japanese restaurant. I later learned it had eggs and was full of salt so no wonder it tasted so good! I wanted to make it vegan but still keep it flavorful and rich tasting. I think I accomplished that and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Use fresh butter lettuce, sliced radishes and avocado for a refreshing salad.
Are your quads struggling to get in those skinny jeans or are your calves too tight for tall boots? This is a common complaint I hear from my female clients all too often and I can relate. In early 2016 I switched my workouts to prepare for a 3 day 300 mile bike ride for Make-A-Wish. In doing so I noticed a shift in my body and mostly my legs.
Don't let traveling get you off your fitness routine. It is easy to skip workouts while traveling but your body will thank you later if you find just 30 minutes to fit a short jog or a few push ups in. I use trips as an excuse to scout the competition and see what other cities are offering in the fitness industry.
