Hot Fitness Tip

     

Make strength exercise an essential part of your routine. A study revealed that only 20 minutes is required to complete one set of weight-training exercises, whereas 50 minutes is required to complete three sets. While more frequent training and additional sets and repetitions may produce larger gains in strength, the difference in improvement is usually small in the average healthy adult, plus the average adult does not have the same goals as an athlete. Also, more intense resistance training may increase the risk of orthopedic injury or a cardiac event in middle-aged and older participants.


Words of Inspiration

     

One Good Deed Per Day

Why not make a commitment to do one good deed per day everyday. Large or small, it doesnít matter. Just one thing every day, thatís all. The more you do good, the better you feel about yourself.

Truly, to benefit others is to benefit yourself. Here is what you can do:

*Smile at someone who needs a friend.
*Hold the door for people behind you.
*Write someone a friendly letter.
*Share part of your lunch with someone.
*Take your siblingís kids out for the day.
*Make Tea for your kids.
*Buy coffee for the person behind you.
*Plant a tree.
*Donate blood.
*Make soup for someone recovering from surgery or an illness.

Remember, Actions always speak louder than words.

Nutritional Information:
Per Serving

Calories: 130 Kcal, Fat: 8g, Carbohydrate: 12 g, Protein: 4 g, Fiber: 3 g.


Ingredients:

Dressing

  • 1 tsp. honey

  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil

Salad

  • 3 Tbsp. raw pumpkin seeds

  • 1 poblano chile pepper

  • 6 cups baby spinach

  • 3 Tbsp. finely crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese

  • 1/2 cup baked corn chips


Directions:

  • For dressing, in small bowl, whisk honey, lime juice, vinegar and salt until salt dissolves. Whisk in oil. Set dressing aside for up to 1 hour, remixing it before using.

  • Set small, heavy skillet over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add pumpkin seeds to dry pan. Slip your hand into oven mitt, and lift pan, moving it in circular motion over heat to keep seeds moving so they do not burn. When many seeds are golden and some have popped, about 2 minutes, spread them on dinner plate to cool.

  • Using tongs, hold pepper over open flame and turn it until skin is charred all over, about 4 minutes. May also char pepper under broiler or over outdoor grill. When pepper is cool enough to handle, with your fingers, slip off charred skin. Halve pepper lengthwise, and use small knife to remove seeds and ribs. Chop half the pepper; set other half aside for another use.

  • In large salad bowl, place spinach. Add chopped poblano. Just before serving, pour on dressing and toss to coat spinach and pepper. Sprinkle on toasted pumpkin seeds and feta. A few at a time, lightly crush corn chips over salad. Toss, and divide salad among 4 individual salad bowls.
