Bring 2 cups chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepot. Season with NuSalt and add rice. Cover, turn down heat to a very low simmer and cook for about 1 hour or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Fuff rice with fork and toss with olive oil. Keep warm. 2. Char Anaheim peppers over an open flame, turning to cook evenly, until skins are mostly burnt. Place peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap for about 7 minutes to steam off skin. Remove as much charred skin as possible with a paper towel. Seed peppers and cut into rings about ½ inch thick. 3. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Season steaks with pepper and NuSalt and spray pan with Pam. Saute until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Remove steaks from pan and keep warm. 4. Spray pan with Pam again and add onions. Saute until onions are starting to become tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for another minute. Deglaze with balsamic vinegar. Add 1 cup chicken stock to the pan and bring to a simmer. Mix remaining ½ cup chicken stock with cornstarch to make a slurry and whisk into pan. Stir in marinara and evaporated milk and bring to a simmer. Add peppers, cayenne and simmer until vegetables are tender. Return beef to the pan to reheat, for about 2 minutes. Stir in fines herbs. Serve with rice.
I Love Kettlebell Training. Kettlebell training is a workout that uses a bowling ball shaped weight with a handle on it. These intense workouts use all the muscles in the body to target core muscles. They are designed to develop strength, stamina, and stability.
As a personal trainer I workout with kettlebells twice a week, at a very high level of intensity and I totally love them. I am using muscles that I have never felt before. I love training my clients with them; they see a difference in their overall body shape and cardiovascular capacity.
If you have any questions about them please feel free to call me at One On One Fitness Boston or email me.
Boot camp workouts are a very good way to lose fat and have fun at the same time. They are largely popular because in one workout you can focus on the whole body. They also combine multiple areas of fitness. Strength training, cardiovascular work, Flexibility as well as fat loss, and weight loss. Another reason why boot camp workouts are great is because they are fun and they can be done outside. If you enjoy doing something I think you will be more apt to do it.
Aging is inevitable but we do have some control over the process. Staying as active as possible by engaging in an enjoyable activity on a regular basis is crucial to healthy aging. The activity does not need to be strenuous or formal; gardening and walking a few times a week are examples of popular activities. Regular exercise and a well balanced diet help reduce heart disease, depression, and cancer, and have a positive impact on memory as well.
