Explanation of heart rate training zones

There are a few ‘training zones’ when talking about heart rate training.  This article does a great job in spelling out what your body is doing and what you are achieving in each zone.  Zones 2 and 4 are the ones I need to be focusing on now, particularly zone 2 as I’m building up my base.  Translation: I need to build up my body’s ability to use fat for fuel.

Tasty, simple protein

Tasty, simple protein

Just made this last night.  It takes under five minutes and is going to be a staple in my kitchen.  The edamame hummus is lighter than regular chickpea hummus.  Pair it with baked lentil chips and you’ve got vegan crack.  All ingredients available at Trader Joe’s, although I’ve found I prefer the tahini from the corner middle eastern market.
