According to Cedric X. Bryant, chief science officer for the American Council on Exercise converting a pound of fat with a pound muscle, helps you burn an additional four to six more calories each day. That is because each pound of muscle burns more than twice the calories of fat without even having to move. Did you flex your muscles today?

As temperatures climb, here are a few tips to stay active and hydrated from Katherine Tallmadge, M.A., R.D.:
1.For short-duration (less than 60 minutes), low-to-moderate-intensity activity, water is a good choice to drink before, during and after exercise
2. Avoid alcohol the day before or the day of a long exercise bout, and avoid exercising with a hangover
3. Consider all fluids, including tea, coffee, juices, milk and soups (though excluding alcohol, which is extremely dehydrating). The amount of caffeine in tea and coffee does not discount the fluid in them, even if they have a slight diuretic effect, according to the most recent report by the National Research Council's Food and Nutrition Board
4. Following strenuous exercise, you need more protein to build muscle, carbohydrates to refuel muscle, electrolytes to replenish what's lost in sweat, and fluids to help rehydrate the body. Low-fat chocolate milk is a perfect, natural replacement that fills those requirements.
5. Drink enough water to prevent thirst
6. Monitor fluid loss by checking the color of your urine. It should be pale yellow and not dark yellow, too smelly or cloudy

Gazpacho — Oh She Glows 07/06/2015

Meatless Monday recipe! Easy, fresh and cool for the summer:
Adapted from Cook’s Illustrated 2001.

Yield: 6.5 cups


1.5 pounds tomatoes (I used 6 small), roughly chopped & core removed
1 red pepper, roughly chopped & seeds removed
1 English cucumber, peeled & roughly chopped
1/4 cup chopped sweet onion
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 cups low-sodium V8 (or you may use tomato juice)
3/4-1 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
Red pepper flakes & Freshly ground black pepper, to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp each)
2 tbsp chopped fresh Parsley (or other herb)
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp red wine vinegar (or sherry vinegar, balsamic would also work), to taste


1. Add tomatoes, pepper, cucumber, onion, garlic clove, lime juice, V8 (or tomato juice), olive oil, and herbs into a blender and blend until smooth.

2. Now add the rest of the seasonings (salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, vinegar) slowly and adjust to taste.

3. Chill for 2-4 hours, or overnight.

4. Garnish with chopped peppers, green onion, black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil just before serving.

Note: If your blender is small you might have to cut this batch in half so it won’t overflow. I made mine in the Vitamix and it just fit. Makes about 6.5 cups.
