Here’s an Asian-inspired dinner assembly for you…
1. Saute a clove of garlic, bell peppers, onions and broccoli in sesame oil. In another pot, cook quinoa.
2. Add chicken (we used pre-cooked rotisserie), soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, pinch of tumeric and a few tablespoons of water into veggies. Cook until well heated. Stir in quinoa.
When my second son, Sean, was about 6 months old, I hired a trainer for the first time. It was actually my first time working out in a gym as well. She suggested I get a heart rate monitor and told me what “fat burning zone” I should be in. This zone is disputed and you will hear there is no such thing, but for me , it worked! I lost a lot of weight at that time.
Ten years later I just got a new one…and it keeps track of calories burned! I compared the calories burned on the watch to what I plug into www.myfitnesspal.com and they matched pretty well. Polar makes a million different kinds, but this is all I need. I like to keep it simple sweetheart!
To find out more about the benefits of wearing a heartrate monitor, go to www.polarusa.com. They have cute videos that are short and easy to understand.
I want to hear your experince with your heart rate monitor!
I have a ton of purple kale and swiss chard left over from gleaning on the farm, so salads are on the menu every day this week! I wanted something a little different, something tangy for the taste buds! Here’s what I threw together:
Salad: Purple kale, swiss chard, rotisserie chicken and Jones turkey bacon. Cucumbers would have been great too had we had any!
Dressing: Olive oil, dijon mustard, one whole lemon squeezed and honey mixed in blender
