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.
I recently learned that one of the best mushroom soups I have ever tasted was actually made with butter despite being told by countless people it was vegan. I should have realized it the first time I tried it based only the way it coated my spoon but I wanted to believe someone actually took the time to make a vegan soup.
I am raising money for Make A Wish Foundation by biking 300 miles over 3 days. Many of you probably think this will be easy for me but I beg to differ. The studio is only 5 miles one way so biking 100 miles a day is going to be a big challenge, but there are children suffering every day with diseases and it is for these children that I choose to ride.
When training many topics of conversation arise and recently I keep getting asked if there is a difference between cacao, cacao nibs and cocoa. I didn't know the exact answer so I spent a few hours scouring the internet so next time I was asked I could give an actual answer. Cacao and cocoa may sound similar, but both of them are unique when it comes to taste, nutrition, and cost.
