Nothing beats the heat like a tall glass of ice water. Except maybe ice water with a little lemon twist. It’s the perfect drink for hot summer days, when those high temps trigger greater fluid loss from your body. Did you know that lemons are loaded with electrolytes? Or that the juice from half a lemon contains only six calories? So say goodbye to overpriced, artificially flavored sports drinks and get squeezing!
Q: What are some of your best “quick fix” solutions for skin troubles?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetitican Catie Wiggy reponds:
Customers and clients are always asking me what they can do for breakouts, puffy eyes and dull skin. Everyone needs a quick fix from time to time, so here are a few tips to get skin looking its best as quickly as possible.
For a “non-fishy-tasting” fish, tilapia is a top pick. Mild, light and flaky, it soaks up whatever seasonings it’s cooked with, making a flavorful recipe like this one helpful to have on hand. In a food processor, you’ll combine olive oil with a small onion, fresh cilantro, chili powder and coriander—plus a surprise summer ingredient (hint: it makes great shortcakes!)—to create a simple rub. Once applied, all it takes it three minutes on the grill, and dinner is served!
With its mild flavor and delicate texture, tilapia is a popular fish enjoyed by even those who “don’t like fish.” In this simple recipe, tender filets are brushed with zesty Dijon mustard, drizzled with lemon juice and sprinkled with fresh sage before being baked to flaky, flavorful perfection. Serve with a fresh greens salad for a quick-and-healthy dinner on a busy weeknight.
Bright yellow, tart and tangy, lemons are one of nature’s most versatile, delicious and healthy fruits. They add a refreshing burst of flavor to any recipe. And since they’re available year round, lemons are an accessible and affordable ingredient. Nothing adds zest or intensity to a dish like a squeeze of lemon. You can easily brighten up the flavor of grilled foods by adding lemon juice to marinades. Or, for an added flavor boost, grill entire lemon halves and squeeze the smoky juice over your dish. Use a fresh, fragrant lemon for this Grilled Lemon Tofu with Carrot Cashew Slaw recipe. It’s guaranteed to brighten your day! Read more →
Of all the things to love about almonds, this one should really get your heart pumping: research shows that a diet high in nutritious nuts can help support healthy cholesterol levels.*
Just one ounce of almonds (about 22 nuts) packs more protein than an egg and provides more than three grams of dietary fiber. Almonds are also a rich source of vitamin E, riboflavin, magnesium, manganese and copper.
Shelled almonds are available whole, sliced or slivered with skin on, or blanched with skin removed. When choosing dry-roasted almonds, look for the kind without added sugar or preservatives. Store them in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place to prevent rancidity and to keep them from absorbing odors from other foods. Refrigerated almonds last several months, and frozen almonds are good for up to a year.
The following recipe is a fresh, salty-sweet twist on the traditional green bean side dish. Almonds coated with balsamic vinegar and Kosher salt add delicious texture and a bit of sweetness to this vegetable favorite.
