Cacao Nibs Cool Smoothie Ideas

If you are a chocolate lover like me but still value health, then you will need to try a rejuvenating cacao nibs smoothie. A healthy taste of chocolate can accompany health as a priority.

Using Papaya As a Natural Meat Tenderizer

There is nothing more delicious than some juicy, tender meat fresh from the grill, but getting hold of the most tender cuts can cost a small fortune. While buying poor quality meat is never going to work out well for you, buying meat that would, on its own, come out just a little tough and using a tenderizer can make for savings as well as a great meal. There are a number of ways to tenderize meat, including of course the classic ‘beating it up with a mallet’ method, however marinating is the best option because it also makes the meat tastier, juicier, and healthier because it prevents the formation of HCAs which are believed to be a carcinogen when the meat is cooked.

The Balancing Act: A Diet How To

Do you remember your school’s health teacher or parents going on for what seemed like hours about the food pyramid and a balanced diet? Good, because I’m about to tell you they were half right. A balanced diet is important for your health and fitness. But there is a little more to a healthy and well balanced diet than just eating the ‘ideal” number of serves of certain food groups and counting calories.

Marathon Hydration

Drinking should be simple enough, but it’s not. Sedentary people drink: runners hydrate. When and how to hydrate is an art unto itself. Common logic suggests that we should drink when we’re thirsty. But common logic doesn’t apply to marathon training, with long runs lasting two-to-three hours.
