The late summer Make Healthy a Lifestyle is here! For me, summers have always been about 3 things: swimming, grilling, and salads. That’s why I’ve decided in this issue to feature these 3 things I love most about summer.
First, swimming. I’ve included two articles about the powerful and healing properties of water along with one of my favorite water power workouts. This workout is one of my best ever ways to cross train optimally without pounding the crap out of your spine and joints. Plus, according to the Lose It app., you’ll be burning lots of calories too—about 500—with NO impact. Now that’s about the equivalent of running 5 miles—AWESOME! (As I said, water is pretty powerful. It is the only element that can go around and through just about everything and everwhere, including mountains.)
Second, grilling. Living in California for the past two decades has influenced all aspects of my life—especially food. I am crazy about Mexican food. My favorite dish is grilled Mahi Mahi fish tacos. For me summer’s are about having Mahi Mahi Taco Tuesday’s with loads of fresh pico de gallo made with fresh, farmer's market heirloom Brandywine tomatoes—YUM. Try my fast food fav Mahi Mahi fish taco recipe.
Third, salads. As I stated in #2 living in SoCal has made my tastebuds expand to also include Mediterrian food. My love of Mediterrian flavors began working as the head nurse at The Pritikin Longevity Center in Santa Monica on the beach looking directly at the Pacific Ocean. One of my fast food favorite salads is Summer Heirloom Tomato Tabbouleh Salad. So healthy and stores well in big batches. Right now the heirloom tomatoes have the most intense sweetness. (They’re almost better than chocolate:))
I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer,
