How about some kale chips!

A friend of mine is hooked on kale chips and is always trying to get me to try them.  I even bought kale once so I could make them.  

Then, I forgot I'd bought them, and they ended up in the yard for the coon and opposum, both of which said, 'WHAT THE HECK IS THAT????'  I think they thought I was trying to poison them.  

Then, I found this vid today and decided maybe I'd give it a try, and this time remember I bought the kale.

PS:  Sorry I'm posting extra vids.  I know it slows down the download time.  Let me know if it does too much and I'll just post the links from now on.  :)

How about a 1 mile workout to start the day!

Good morning!  Thought I'd post a little something different this morning.  How about a little 15 minute 1 mile workout to start your day!

PS:  Don't let the word 'beginner' make you think it's a nothing workout.  You're about to do a mile, and believe me - you'll feel it.  smiley

Diets kill, and detox is a joke?

I’ve come across so many great articles out there today to share that I’m having a heck of a time choosing which ones to go with.  The most fun was the bugs.  Couldn’t resist that one.

One thing I found in particular at Mother Earth News, was on the latest statistics from 2010 on what were the leading causes of death in the US. 

  • #1 was diets (678,282)
  • #5 – inactivity – couch potatoes (234,022)

You would think with fitness being a billions of dollars business that the stats wouldn’t be that poor.  So, what are your thoughts on why diet and exercise are even in the list?

Poor Dietary Habits Kill More People Than Smoking
Mother Earth News

More exercise is not cutting into the nation's high obesity levels, and unwise diets are killing more people than about anything else — including smoking, drinking and drug use…

Here we go.  Now this is a rather controversial topic.  Do juice cleansers really work or not.  It’s a tough one on my part, because I did a 3 day liquid fast once and felt so good at the end of the 3 days I dreaded eating again. 

But the question is – do they really work, or is that feeling simply a result of eliminating sugar, etc., from your system?

More questions to think about:

  1. Does it matter that there’s no scientific proof that it’s doing anything?
  2. Could you experience the exact same feeling by simply not eating sugar, fats, and processed foods?
  3. Dr. Siegel says the idea comes from a guy name Burrows who started the Master cleanse and was “indicted for pretending to give medical care.”  This reminds me of the the old medicine shows.   Smile  Does its past hold any bearing on the fact that it’s still being used today?

When I toss my past experience of a 3 day liquid fast out the window, I’m reminded that G-d made our bodies to heal themselves, and that also means our body detoxifies itself on it’s own. 

So what do you think?

Here’s Dr. Salmadi’s list he gives at the end of the video:

drinking 7 glasses of water a day. 
eliminate alcohol and smoking
sugar (always against it)
processed food and preservatives (where your toxins are coming from)
one portion of red meat a week, fish is better
fruits and veggies
don't starve yourself
and drink 4 cups of coffee (antioxidants will help you)


Juice cleanses and detox diets: Helpful or harmful?
Fox News

The health benefits of juice cleanses and detox diets have been touted in magazines and on talk shows for the past couple of years. It has grown to become a $5 billion industry, and there is no shortage of consumer reports on how great the cleanses ...


Europe going to the bugs?

Oh gross!!!  I was searching about for some really good articles to share with you on exercise and diet, and this little bugger (no pun intended) popped up.  And naturally, it popped up just after I ate supper.  (groan)

The article has the text to the audio, but the audio is more enjoyable.  Give it a listen and let me know what you think.  Would you give it a try?  Can you picture it in your salad?  Burrito-Bug?  What would a sunny-side up bug look like?  How about mac n’ bug?  LOL 


Bug farmer working to introduce insects to European diets

Public Radio International PRI

Bugs are a popular source of protein in a lot of the developing world, but eating insects are almost unheard of in the developed world. A farmer in Spain, though, wants to change that and make bugs a regular source of protein in European diets.  (But!  First they gotta make it legal.)

I moved!

Ok, that has nothing to do with me exercising, it’s just I’ve been coming across so many great articles on fitness, that I decided to stop posting everything at Wrinkle World, and create an exercise blog.  Thus, the name – The Exercise Blogger!

I haven’t really played much with bloggers changes, so I’m experimenting with the “pages” that you see above the Fit Yummy Mummy bar. 

I’ve got more pages coming that will focus only on my favourite workout programs: Fit Yummy Mummy, NoBull Bodybuilding, Denise Austin, and Richard Simmons.

And of course, I’ll be writing articles, posting the coolest articles I can find by other people on the net, and the occasional video.

And speaking of video!  I put this one up for you mom’s!  Try this one your next trip to the playground.  Smile 

Have a great weekend!
