Healthy Cooking Habits to Help Shed those Last Few Pounds

  1. Replace Butter with Olive Oil- You need to use all fats in moderation, but not all fats are created equal. Unsaturated fats like olive oils is far better for you than saturated fats like butter. Mix a few herbs and spices in with a drop of olive oil to dip your bread in rather than slathering a tablespoon of butter on your roll.

  2. Whole Grains- Whole grains are much healthier for you than refined grains. Grains like brown rice are loaded with vitamins and minerals that you might otherwise miss out on by eating refined grains.

  3. Keep Portions Appropriate- We tend to eat more than we need. The recommended serving of beef is the size of a deck of cards but rarely do we actually eat that size. Keeping serving sizes appropriate is a key in cutting back on calories and fats.

  4. Cook at Home- Not only will this save you a bunch of money, it will also help you improve your diet. Instead of eating out at fast food restaurants, take the time to prepare and cook a healthy meal with vegetables, fruits and whole grains and you will begin to notice results in your waistline and your wallet.

  5. Snack Healthy- Junk foods like potato chips are loaded with saturated fats and often times artificial preservatives which can hinder your weight loss goals. Replacing these common snack foods with healthier options like nuts

  6. Reduce Your Red Meat Intake- Red meat is delicious and loaded with vitamins and minerals that are essential to living a healthy lifestyle, but just like portion sizes, your red meat intake should be kept in moderation. When you do eat red meat, try to go for the liver since is packed with more nutrients than the other parts of the animal.

  7. Cut back on Sodium- Americans love their salt, and for good reason but our sodium intake has skyrocketed since we eat more salty processed foods. Sodium is essential for our body but in excess it can do much more harm than good.

  8. Don’t Skimp on the Fruits and Veggies- Two of the most important food groups often get tossed to the wayside in favor of processed junk foods. Replacing potato chips and other fatty side dishes with their fresh and healthy counterparts is one of the most crucial steps to losing those last few pounds.

While eating more healthy can help your body shed those last few pounds of your weight loss goal, alone it’s not enough. Contact Team THF by clicking here to learn more about our weight loss program and how you can accomplish your weight loss goals.

7 exercises that will transform your body

Workout 1: Squats

The squat is an ultra-effective #exercise in toning your glutes, strengthening and burning mega calories. To increase your heart rate and increase your calorie expenditure, you can perform jump squats. And to add resistance and feel the burn, stay in a squat hold with weights in your hands. Squats are one of the most effective exercises to transform your #body.

Workout 2: Lounges

Lunges are a super effective #exercise in toning the muscles in your legs. What makes lunges give you such great results is that they isolate each leg individually, bringing you more results. To increase the intensity and add some cardio, try doing some jump lunges.

Workout 3: Speed Walking

As Jillian Michaels states, as much as she does not always love running, this is an #exercise that burns such a high amount of calories and brings you such great results, how can you not do this? Although I actually enjoy speed walking, because I always feel such a sense of accomplishment after I complete my jog!

Workout 4: Jumping Rope

Jumping rope burns the most calories per minute than any other #exercise. Jumping rope is great because this is inexpensive and easily portable workout that you can do anywhere. So get jumping for a great workout and a lot of fitness fun!

Workout 5: Cycling

Want to work your #legs and get a great sweat? Then get out for a cycling workout. Cycling is a great workout because you can push yourself at a high intensity. You can cycle solo or bring along a friend. Whatever you do, make sure you push yourself so that you can make the most of your workout.

Workout 6: Swimming

Swimming is a great workout that will bring you amazing results, especially if you are a good swimmer. Alternate with the different stroke styles so that you can work different muscle groups. A swimming workout can transform your #body and strengthen you core. So what are you waiting for? Head to the pool for a dip, already!

Workout 7: Pushups

Pushups make the list of exercises to transform your #body because they really work. There are so many different pushups you can do that work the different muscles in your arms and shoulders. By varying your pushup style you will also decrease the risk of becoming bored. I love how pushups not only work your upper body but also focus on the core. Challenge yourself to doing pushups several days a week so that you can sculpt your #arms and transform your body!

Hope you enjoyed this list of exercises that will transform your body and hopefully you will do these exercises so that you can see these results. Results are achieved through your hard work and discipline, and a passion for fitness always helps. What are your goals and how will you achieve these goals?

How to Pick the Freshest Seafood

Buy fish that's caught locally. If you live in the Northeast, choose arctic char or striped bass; Midwesterners can look for yellow perch and lake trout; on the Pacific coast, go for wild halibut or cod.

A fillet should be almost odorless and have a firm texture -- pass if it's mushy. Also, check the ice underneath a piece of fish. Discoloration from dripping juices means the seafood has been sitting out a long time.

Can't buy fresh? Look for fillets frozen in individual packets. This locks in freshness and prevents freezer burn.

Country Apple Cobbler

Looking for a quick dessert idea for when your friends come over? This recipe is a great one.  Warm cobbler right out of the oven is something that everybody loves; a true comfort food.

 

Country Apple Cobbler  

4 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored

2 10-oz. cans refrigerated crescent roll dough

1 c. butter (1/2-3/4 c. would likely be enough)

1 ½ c. white sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 12-oz. can Sprite or try Mt. Dew

 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cut each apple into 4 wedges and set aside. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the smallest end. Pinch to seal and place in the baking dish.

Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Pour over the apple dumplings. Pour soda over the dumplings.

Bake for 35–45 minutes in the oven, or until golden brown. Makes 16 servings.


You can let the butter melt at a low heat while you are preparing the dumplings. The sugar never really completely melted in the butter (which will truly be the case if you use less butter), so you can just poured it over each dumpling with its sugary sweetness.
