This salmon dish can be on the table in 30 minutes, but you'll enjoy more flavor if you marinate the salmon the morning of and let it sit in the fridge all day. If you're vegan or vegetarian, you can make this exact same recipe with cubes of extra-firm tofu. Simply drain it for a few hours to get the moisture out, then let it marinate for the day in the fridge.
Resisting the snack urge is one our most hard-fought healthyish battles. The juicy blueberry muffin staring at you through the case while you order your morning coffee. The 3 p.m. craving for potato chips and chocolate-covered almonds at your desk. What are you supposed to do with all of those temptations?
Soup is such an underrated meal. Maybe it's because it seems like a whole process to make (false!), but it's just not on our meal-prep radar the way it should be. Now that the temperatures are dropping, we're making a point to change that. After all, if you make it right, it can easily be super filling and a simple way to add more veggies to your day.
The first time you tried lox, it was probably on a bagel. And it probably had red onion, sliced tomato, and capers on it. It was probably one of the most delicious bagels you've ever had. But why wait for your next bagel when you can enjoy smoked salmon in all kinds of ways-and healthy ones at that. The omega-packed fish is a great lean protein to add to a variety of meals.
On most Sundays (my cheat day), I would go cray and eat everything I wanted until I was sick to my stomach. I'd end the day feeling terrible and super bloated. That would wear off by Wednesday or Thursday, then I'd repeat the cycle again. It was silly. And I loved it. Most people who try the slow-carb diet lose weight and don't feel “deprived” because of the cheat day-and that leads to people sticking to it longer term.
For the majority of my life, my weight has been an issue. My parents didn't know a lot about nutrition, so by default, neither did I. We went out for fast food at least three times a week, and as I got bigger I would just order more food. From ages 3 to 17, I weighed significantly more than most of my peers.
On seeing this article's headline, you may have had one of the following thoughts: 1) Why does anyone need a guide to masturbation when it comes so naturally? 2) Oh, good, some new techniques! 3) Phew! Maybe someone is finally going to answer the questions I've been too embarrassed to ask. 4) Gross, they're trying to lure in readers by talking about lady-wanking.
Soup is our go-to when the weather cools down, but there are other (way more fun) ways to warm up from the inside out. Take boozy beverages, for example. Does anything sound better than a mug of spiked hot chocolate or some mulled wine by a roaring fire? OK, maybe we're getting ahead of ourselves (can you tell we're ready for winter?
As much as we like to think we'll whip up something healthy and delicious every single night, cooking dinner for just yourself can easily slip into frozen meal territory if you're not careful (and if you haven't already ordered takeout). But even on days when you have no time at all, you can definitely squeeze in one of these simple 15-minute recipes.
If you're not taking/drinking/eating probiotics right now, are you even healthy?! Just kidding. But these little critters that live in your gut are everywhere these days, from supplements to probiotic-enriched granolas and waters. But do these products actually benefit your gut microbiome, or is it just really good marketing?
Share on Pinterest Dinner parties always seem like a great idea. Good food, good company, no corkage fees, and no need to leave your home. But if you're the host, throwing a dinner party can easily turn you into a ball of stress. Often, you spend half the day prepping, and it always takes longer than you think it will.
We all have our indulgences. Whether it comes in a bread basket, drenched in syrup, or covered in cheese, we all have that comforting recipe that, try as we might, is too good to pass up. Rather than being bumped back to square one, Josh Axe of DrAxe.com shows us how we can use naturally modify our favorite recipes to stay committed to our health goals.
A few months ago someone sent me a link with an attachment. I tried to click on it, but couldn't get it to open. Barely 3 seconds later, I received about 194 bounce backs/OOOs and Please Do Not Reply emails. It was a dreaded email virus that pinged every poor soul in my contact history. Yikes! Did I freak out (a tiny bit)?
There's no hangriness like post-workout hangriness. You know, the kind where you could house an entire pizza no problem. If you really don't want your exercise efforts to go to waste or to suffer an energy crash later, it's important to refuel the right way-and that means lots of protein. While other nutrients are important for overall strength and wellness, registered dietitian Elizabeth Jarrard says the amino acids in protein can replenish muscles in a way that carbs, fats, and micronutrients can't on their own.
Chances are, if you've used kettlebells before, you know how to swing 'em, which uh, gets a little boring after awhile. So how can you switch things up to get more out of your favorite horned strength training tool? Just flip it on its head. “Swinging kettlebells works the posterior chain including the back, shoulders, legs, and glutes,” explains Kenny Santucci, certified personal trainer and program director at Solace in New York City.
Second, they're bad for the environment. Lettuce is often cited as the No. 1 source of vegetable food waste in the U.S. (and on an even unhappier note, the CDC says leafy, raw vegetables lead to an awful lot of food poisoning). Third, they need “unhealthy” toppings to taste better. Anyone who sells you a plain salad knows you'll hate it.
Chicken, fish, eggs, Greek yogurt-oh, and beans and nut butter. If someone asked you to make a list of high-protein foods, these are probably the ones you'd mention. But there are plenty of other contenders. Many whole grains, cheeses, and vegetables serve up a surprising amount of the muscle-builder, and adding them to your plate can bump up the protein content considerably.
If you've hopped on the keto bandwagon, you're probably on the lookout for signs of ketosis, the state your body enters naturally when in starvation mode or, more tolerably, on a super low-carb diet. It may sound a little freaky, but here's why it can be a good thing when your body goes into ketosis if you're fueling yourself with lots of healthy fats on the side.
IMHO, the struggle is definitely real when it comes to dressing for the gym. Whether you have a go-to outfit or love to follow the latest trends, I think you'll relate to what I go through when getting ready for a trip to the gym. 1. When you have nothing to wear. Share on Pinterest How is it possible that I have nothing to work out in?
Another day, another supplement's taking over the internet. If you've been cruising around Paleo websites or following the latest beauty advice, you've probably seen the word “collagen” thrown around more than once. Until recently, collagen was a treasured ingredient in antiaging creams, but didn't play a big factor in the Western supplement industry.
Snacks are as crucial a component of movie night as what you're watching, whether you're at the theater or staying in. We take our movie munchies seriously, which means ditching concession stand grub like fake-butter popcorn and sugar-saturated slushies. But we also don't want to settle for plain fruit or a boring bowl of nuts.
