I hope you are getting in some outside time today…but once you’re sufficiently hot and tired (and sunburnt if you’re me…oops) and ready for some indoor time, here are some good links to relax with.
Adventures to inspire
Running and fitness
Let’s start with not working out: reasons you should skip your workout.
How to maximize your dead bug, a simple but effective core exercise.
Food rules for post-exercise. Don’t avoid the simple carbs!
Benefits of caffeine for runners (and others).
The making of an expert – “When most people practice, they focus on the things they already know how to do. Deliberate practice is different. It entails considerable, specific, and sustained efforts to do something you can’t do well—or even at all. Research across domains shows that it is only by working at what you can’t do that you turn into the expert you want to become.”
Apparently it’s not just me: why you hate the sound of your own voice.
What’s in the average poop – in comic form.
For hiking/backpacking season: molasses pumpkin seed granola bars.
Simple greens and beans are always good too, like these stewed pinto beans and collard greens.
I have…let’s just say several…lentil taco recipes, but I can always use one more. Especially with black lentils and radish salsa.
Tuna salad the way it should be, spicy and cajun.
Make your own popsicles this summer, like these creamy chai pops.
A twist on chocolate bark: horchata white chocolate bark with almonds and cinnamon.
How unique and delicious does a lemon, ginger & turmeric cornmeal cake with grapefruit frosting sound?
Soft, fat, chocolaty: all the elements of a good cookie in these salted dark chocolate chunk almond cookies.
What are your fun activities and good links for this weekend?
