Summer Indulgence

23 Jun Posted by in Foody Friday | Comments

Fresh local Strawberries are now available. These delicious little berries are rich in polyphenols which are known for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging benefits.

Here are some yummy ideas:

Parfait—Layer sliced berries with granola, Greek yogurt and slivered almonds for a fresh and satisfying parfait.
Salsa—Add chopped berries into your favorite salsa. It’s an unexpected delicious addition to a summer barbecue.
Flavored—Freeze berries into ice cubes. Use to add color and flavor to a tall glass of water.
Fruit Cooler—Crush a couple of berries and fresh mint leaves in the bottom of a glass and fill with chilled sparkling water.
Fancy Salad—Make a simple salad of steamed asparagus topped with sliced strawberries, low-fat or fat-free feta, slivered almonds, Olive Oil and a drizzle of lemon juice.
Smoothie—Blend strawberries, Protein Powder and Olive Oil for a tasty and filling smoothie. Add ice to obtain desired consistency.

Coaching Tips: The row can make or break this workout. Pace the row so that you have to break up the air squats into sets of 10 or more for a set or two. You will ‘catch your wind’ on the sit-ups, but the push-ups will be challenging. Make sure these push-ups are ‘legit’ and that you aren’t coming off of your thighs.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 15 Russian kb swings, 200m run, 3 rounds
