IGNITE YOUR DAY – Friday

by admin
Dish of the Day:
Steamed Broccoli  Okay, this sounds almost stupid to ‘feature’ something so unglamorous or non-gourmet as steamed broccoli. Yet, if you’re not regularly eating broccoli, raw and steamed, you’re missing out on one of nature’s perfect nutritional gifts. Eat it in salads or with a main dish at dinner – your body will love you for it.   (Click here for additional recipes)

 

Movement of the Day:
Modified Push Ups There are many people who shy away from doing push ups because they can’t yet do a “full” push up…no worries – here you go. Start with these, and soon you’ll develop the core and upper body strength to do ‘real’ Push Ups. Combine any Push Ups with Sit Ups, and Squats (or even better, Overhead Squats) and you’ve got yourself a demanding full-body workout that can be done relatively quickly in your living room while watching Cupcake Wars. Ten reps each exercise for 4-5 rounds, no stopping.  (Click here for additional workouts)
