No matter how small your backyard, there’s often enough soil to plant at least a few items. And when space is at a premium, the vegetation of choice tends to be ones that can land in a salad bowl. There’s not only a huge array of lettuces to cultivate, but also fresh green herbs, which have a delicate flavor and consistency, and which can be a much larger component of the salad presentation than most people realize.

A person who burns about 2,000 calories should get about 8-12 cups of fluid per day. That may sound like a lot to drink, but it doesn’t all have to come from drinking water. Keep slices of watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, and other such water-packed fruits in the refrigerator. They’re excellent sources of water, sugar, and electrolytes and the perfect “grab and go” refresher on a hot summer’s day.
Using natural fruit juices adds both natural sugars and vitamins to your sports drink. Adding sea salt instead of table salt adds an electrolyte source as the minerals of the sea are very similar to the electrolyte composition in our blood. Sea salt contains 84 minerals including sodium, potassium, iodine, magnesium, calcium, zinc and manganese, and it helps to replenish the minerals you lose through perspiration.
