20 Kitchen Staples The Healthiest People Always Have On Hand

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-9-30-28-am
 
1 – Extra virgin olive oil – Yummy in salads and marinades, and drizzled on top of anything from salmon to chicken
2 – Flavored Vinegar – Use with olive oil as a dressing on your salad! Plus, vinegar helps open up blood vessels to improve blood flow.
3 – Course sea salt – Yes, the CDC recommends limiting your salt intake. But be careful, because regular salt is often prepared and processed.
4 – Beef or chicken broth – Simmer it to sip on throughout the day, or to sauté vegetables, and create a base for sauces
5 – Garlic cloves – Mince some up and use to add flavor to salads, soups or stir fry without adding any unhealthy fats or processed ingredients.
6 – Fresh lemons – Squeeze in your morning ginger tea, or over seafood or chicken for a refreshing flavor.
7 – Frozen kale – They stay crisp even after thawing, and they’re a quick add-in to scrambled eggs, smoothies or stir fry.
8 – Frozen berries – Full of antioxidants and a sweet addition to any protein shake or oatmeal.
9 – Canned tomatoes – Make a simple sauce by crushing them and adding in fresh herbs and simmer until warm!
10 – Sriracha – Adds spice to rice, stir fry, or in a salad dressing
11 – Dijon Mustard – A low-calorie way to add flavor to sauces and dips
12 –  Plain Almond Butter – Almonds have less saturated fat than peanuts!
13 – Ground chicken and turkey – These sources of lean protein help you reduce your saturated fat intake, compared to ground beef.
14 – Shrimp – Four large shrimp are only 30 calories, and they are virtually fat-free. Include a few in tacos, salads or bake them.
15 –  Plain Greek Yogurt – Creamy, low-cal, and packed with 18 grams of protein in a 6-oz serving
16 – Eggs – Six grams of protein for only 70 calories! Whip up a few with your favorite veggies for a morning frittata.
17 – Canned Olives – Perfect when you’re craving something salty! Ten olives have only 50 calories.
18 – Beans – An inexpensive source of both protein and fiber.
19 – Fresh Herbs – Hello, antioxidants! Having a fresh supply of cilantro, basil, and rosemary gives life to your dishes!
20 – Dark Chocolate – Keep a square on hand for cravings, because dark chocolate has disease-fighting polyphenols.

Healthy Side Dishes

by Kathy Smith

5 LIP-SMACKING SIDE DISHES... 


ROASTED POTATOES WITH FIGS AND THYME

Recipe courteous of the New York Times

INGREDIENTS:
½ pound dried black mission figs or other dried figs
1 ½ cups brewed black tea, more if necessary
2 pounds fingerling potatoes
1 head garlic
5 sprigs of thyme
⅓ cup olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:
Place figs in a bowl, cover with hot black tea and let cool. Cover and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours or overnight, depending on initial softness of figs.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash potatoes well and trim any bad parts. Separate garlic head into individual cloves but do not remove outer skin.
Drain figs. In a bowl, combine garlic, thyme, figs, potatoes and olive oil; toss. Place on roasting pan and bake until potatoes are tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 30 minutes. Remove and season immediately with salt and pepper. Serve. Diners may remove skin from garlic at the table and eat along with the potatoes, if they wish.


ROASTED CARROTS WITH TURMERIC AND CUMIN

Recipe courteous of the New York Times

INGREDIENTS:
10 medium carrots, peeled
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
½ teaspoon cumin seeds, lightly toasted
½ teaspoon coriander seeds, lightly toasted
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon Aleppo pepper or mild chili powder
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cut the carrots in half lengthwise and crosswise. If the carrots are fat at one end, cut the fat half in half again lengthwise, so that the pieces are more or less equal in thickness. Place in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper, and thyme leaves.
Heat a heavy baking sheet in the oven for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and place the carrots on it in one layer. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring the carrots every 10 minutes. They should be slightly caramelized and tender.
While the carrots are in the oven place the cumin and coriander seeds in a mortar and pestle and grind. Add the soft butter, turmeric and Aleppo pepper or chili powder and stir with the pestle until well amalgamated. Transfer to a large pan.
Remove the carrots from the oven when done and add to the pan with the spice butter and the mint. Toss together, taste and adjust salt and pepper. Serve from the pan or transfer to a platter.


BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH PEANUT VINAIGRETTE

Recipe courteous of Karen Van Guilder Little

INGREDIENTS:
2 pounds brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved and rinsed in cold water
¼ cup peanut oil
Salt
4 teaspoons champagne vinegar
2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup
2 tablespoons unsweetened peanut butter, creamy or chunky
Hot sauce or chile oil (optional)
1 large navel orange
3 tablespoons dried tart cherries or cranberries, plumped in warm water, drained and coarsely chopped
Crispy fried shallots, for garnish (optional)
Chopped fresh mint, for garnish (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
Heat oven to 400 degrees and place a pan of hot water in the bottom, to help prevent the sprouts from becoming tough. Turn on convection if you have it.
Toss sprouts with peanut oil, sprinkle with salt, and spread out on one or two baking sheets. Roast 15 minutes. Stir and continue cooking 10 to 20 minutes more, until browned and crisp. Check sprouts every 5 minutes or so; if they are browning too fast, reduce heat by 25 degrees and turn off convection.
Meanwhile, make the dressing: In a bowl, whisk together vinegar and honey. Whisk in peanut butter until thick and creamy. Add water until consistency is like creamy salad dressing. Season to taste with hot sauce, if using.
When sprouts are tender and browned, remove from oven, transfer to a large bowl and sprinkle with salt. Add half the dressing and toss well.
Take orange and cut a thick slice off the bottom and the top to make flat surfaces. Rest bottom on a cutting board and use a small, sharp knife to carve off all the peel and pith, cutting from top to bottom and following the curve of the fruit. When all the orange flesh is exposed, cut out each segment by slicing along the white membranes. Gently loosen from the orange and set aside.
Add half the orange and half the cherries to bowl and toss. Taste. Adjust with more dressing, orange and cherries until flavors are balanced. Serve warm or at room temperature, topped with fried shallots or fresh mint, or both, if using.


SWEET POTATO PECAN CASSEROLE

Recipe courteous of Food Network

INGREDIENTS:
– 5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
– 1/3 C. honey
– 1 large egg
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
– 1/8 tsp ground ginger
– 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
– 1 Tbsp packed dark brown sugar
– 1/3 C. finely chopped pecans
– Cooking spray

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Mist an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Bring a few inches of water to a boil in a pot with a large steamer basket in place. Put the sweet potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
3. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl, and let cool slightly. Add the honey, egg, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, ginger and 1/2 teaspoon salt; whip with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread the sweet potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.
4. Mix the brown sugar, pecans, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over the potatoes.
5. Bake until hot and beginning to brown around the edges, 40 to 45 minutes.
Serves 6.


WILD MUSHROOMS AND BRUSSELS SPROUTS

Recipe courteous of Melissa Clark

INGREDIENTS:
1 pound wild mushrooms, cut into large bite-size pieces (a mix of chanterelles, oyster mushrooms and maitake is nice)
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt, more as needed
½ teaspoon black pepper, as needed
1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
2 large shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
1 2-inch piece cinnamon stick
6 ounces roasted and peeled chestnuts (1 cup; jarred, vacuum packed or freshly roasted), crumbled
¼ cup brandy
1 ½ tablespoons cider vinegar, more as needed
¼ cup chopped soft herbs, such as dill, tarragon, chives and parsley

DIRECTIONS:
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Spread mushrooms on one rimmed baking sheet; toss with 1/4 cup oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. On a separate rimmed baking sheet, toss brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
Roast both pans of vegetables, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are brown and tender, 20 to 25 minutes. (The mushrooms may be done first, so keep an eye on them.)
While the vegetables cook, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots, cinnamon stick and a pinch of salt; cook, tossing occasionally, until shallots are caramelized and tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
Toss chestnuts into pan and brown lightly, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in brandy. Return pan to medium-high heat and cook until liquid has evaporated. Discard cinnamon stick.
In a large bowl, toss together vegetables, chestnut mixture and vinegar. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Toss in herbs and serve at once.

TIGHTEN The Lower Belly Pooch

by Kathy Smith

NEW Formula To TIGHTEN The Lower Belly Pooch  (VIDEO!)

The elusive toned lower tummy can be a challenge to achieve as you age. So if it seems as if no matter how much training you do and your lower-belly pooch won’t tighten, here’s why… Changes in your hormones encourage extra calories to make a beeline for your belly, where they’re then stored as fat.

When it comes to losing the pooch, the solution is a two-part equation. The first step is to tone the stuff you can cinch (muscle), and the next step is to burn the stuff you can pinch (fat).

Remember, when you’re trying to tighten your lower abs, not all strengthening moves are created equal. The truth is, most routines fall short when trying to reach those tough-to-get-to muscles in the lower part of the tummy.

Today, I’ll  show you a BRAND NEW video with a few moves that I learned in NYC this week that hit that sweet spot in the lower part of your torso. In fact, I’m challenging you to incorporate this effective barre-style workout combo into your ab routine 3 times this week!

Ready to say “see ya” to those Spanx? The moves in this new video will leave your abdominals feeling tight, toned and strong…

Part two in the slim-abs equation is to burn the fat that tends to creep around your midsection as you age.

Listen to this…a study from the University of Vermont tested 178 women ages 20-60, each within a healthy weight range. Results showed that the oldest participant had 55% more abdominal fat than the youngest!
We all have two types of fat… subcutaneous, which is underneath the skin, and visceral fat,which is marbled through the organs and muscles (that’s the most dangerous type). The best way to get rid of both kinds is is to keep your body guessing and strike a balance between moderately-paced workouts, and HIIT workouts.

Here’s day-by-day calendar of what workout to do each day to supercharge your results and incinerate tummy fat before summer!

Sunday – hiking or interval walking
Monday – yoga
Tuesday – circuit training
Wednesday – wild card
Thursday – pilates
Friday – strength training
Saturday – spinning

Wednesday is the “Wild Card” day because your freebie day – not you “day off” from exercising, but a day to do anything and everything you might want. That might mean an exciting new class, whether it’s dancing or indoor rowing – or it might mean another day of cardio, strength training, yoga, or pilates, depending on what my body needs, and what will “surprise” it. On my Wild Card day this week, I tried Bergen’s Cardio Fusion class at Exhale in NYC. This 45-minute class was an intense mix of kickboxing and plyometric moves, high-intensity intervals…it definitely got my heart pumping! Sweat factor: 5/5.

3 Ways To Turn Up The Heat If You’ve Hit A Rut

by Kathy Smith

screen-shot-2016-10-12-at-10-45-18-am

1. Take A Disconnection Vacation

When men and women were surveyed, both agreed that a weekend vacation was the best way to stimulate romance. But, you can’t get away every weekend! So tune out the world for an at-home getaway that leads to some “vacation sex.” Agree to no cell phones, no computer, and dedicate time for each other.

2. Be Adventurous 

Do what you always do, and you’ll get the same results! Agree to be open with your partner, and suggest something you’ve always wanted to try. And of course, be open to suggestions that he/she has! Then, use the suggestions to achieve a mutually-agreed upon goal to spice up your sex life.

3. Fifteen Minutes Quality Time

It’s amazing what 10-15 mins of devoted time with your partner will accomplish….especially on a daily basis. Both of you will look forward to that time when it’s just the two of you, taking care of each other. You might want to do it during an evening stroll, or even lay in bed a few minutes early so you can reconnect before you sleep.

Remember, it’s about progress, not perfection…and get ready for some positive changes in your relationship…and sex life!

5-Minute Full-Body Stretch

by Kathy Smith

For some reason, many of us persist in thinking of our health and exercise as belonging to a distinctly different sphere from the rest of our lives.

What do we tell ourselves? “I’d love to take more time out to stay active or to eat right, but I’m too bogged down with commitments.”

We frame it as a trade-off. We think of time in exercise or wellness as time away from productivity.

That is a false choice. Don’t kid yourself – not investing the time or energy into your health has a direct impact on your ability to attain peak performance – and it’s not a positive impact.

One mistake that many of us make is assuming that we need to be hitting the gym each day or killing ourselves in some type of class each day. We tell ourselves that if we haven’t seen the inside of the gym, then it’s a wash for that day. This overlooks the role that wellness can play as integrated into our daily lives. Look, it’s terrific if you can make it to a gym on a regular basis.  If you can squeeze in a cycling or sculpting class, more power to you.

But the truth is, there is so much that we can do every day to be healthy. You don’t have to go out of your way to get to a cardio machine if you at least strive to get out of the house. Take walking for example…It’s free, it feels good, and it may well create more positive effects for your body than anything else you can do for yourself.

Ask yourself each and everyday – what have I done today to invest in my health, in my well-being?

It might mean being creative with your routine, finding new ways to introduce physical movement and exertion into your daily life. Whether you opt for a standing desk or whether you walk during your meetings instead of sit down, there is so much that we all can do.

The importance thing is to find the time and the strategies that work for you.

Today, take a break from your normal routine, and try this 5-minute full-body stretch to release the tension you’ve been holding onto during the week.

Release A Stiff Neck In 2 Minutes

by Kathy Smith

screen-shot-2016-10-03-at-4-20-04-pm

Standing Neck Release

Time: Thirty seconds on each side.

1. Stand with your feet hip distance apart.

2. Interlace your fingers behind your back.

3. Draw both interlaced hands to your right hip, keeping your shoulders down away from your ears and drawing your elbows toward each other.

4. Lower your right ear toward your right shoulder, keeping your left shoulder down away from the ear. Feel the release of the muscles on the side of your neck as your cervical spine opens and releases.

5. Continue for thirty seconds; switch sides and repeat.

Shoulder Dance Roll

Reps: Ten in each direction, inhaling through your nose, exhaling through your mouth.

1. Make complete circles with both shoulders simultaneously.

2. Enjoy the sensation of your shoulders opening and moving in a fluid, sensual way.

 

Neck Massage

Reps: 10-30 seconds on each side.

  1. Standing or seated upright, tilt your right ear to your right shoulder and draw your right arm up and around your head. Allow the weight of the arm to gently stretch your neck and create a release.
  2. Breath smoothly and steadily.
  3. If you find an area that feels tight, stuck, or painful, slow down and draw your awareness to that area. What do you feel there? What is the texture of the sensation? Saturate the area with your entire awareness and feel into it.
  4. If the sore spot is on the left side of your neck, place your left hand on the area. If it’s on the right side, use your right hand. If you cannot reach the area, use a tennis ball and lean against a wall.
  5. Using firm pressure, use your fingers to press into the spot. It may feel uncomfortable, but should not feel like a sharp pain.
  6. While continuing to apply pressure, turn your head in the opposite direction of the kink. Then, tilt your neck as if your chin was trying to touch your armpit.
  7. Afterward, stretch your arms to the ceiling.
