Day 3 of the 7-day workout Challenge Pilates

Pilate is an exercise with precise and controlled movement. The focus is to strengthen the body. This helps to improve the muscle and give a leaner appearance. This exercise type works on the whole body. You do not develop only in one area. It improves flexibility. Great for all ages. And Pilates helps individuals do exercise correctly. If you are worried about bulking up, you do not have to worry about this with Pilates. This type of exercise helps to build proper posture. Feel more energized the more you workout. And helps to de-stress.

The one I started as a beginner

  • glute bridge
  • lying legs extension
  • side-lying leg abduction
  • back extensions
  • deadlift upright row
  • goalpost lifts
  • side-lying leg abduction
  • lying windshield wiper

I find Pilates helped with my tight muscles. I don’t stretch as much as I would like so Pilates helped with that. Pilates allow me to improve on flexibility. This prevents me from pulling something or preventing me from hurting myself. With yoga, sometimes I do worry I am not doing the correct position but I don’t have the same issue with Pilates. This is my Day 3 of the 7-day workout challenge. You should try Pilates for yourself.

Other Pilates position that I would like to work on. If you want to eat or drink healthier after exercise, how about read my post about yogurt drink.

Lately, my children have been a little more obsessed than before. I have been buying yogurt drink non-stop. Therefore, why not make my own. Make drinkable yogurt for breakfast.

Instruction:

What to look for in a yogurt

What to look for in a yogurt. Yogurt should have mainly both milk and probiotic cultures. The yogurt will have vitamin D and Calcium needed for your body. To avoid added sugar. The added sugar makes yogurt unhealthy. Too much sugar does hurt the body’s health. The yogurt selected should not have added sugar. Yogurt already has natural sugars so no need to add an additional amount. The best flavor is one without any flavor.

Live Cultures

Probiotic bacteria help to make yogurt. It turns sugar into lactic acid that gives yogurt the sour taste.

Yogurt Drink

My children love the pineapple mango yogurt drink. Do you have any favorite ones? There are various other flavors you can make like vanilla, strawberry, peach, blueberry, and papaya. You can always experiment to see what combination you would like.

Homemade Vegetable Broth From Scraps

I am trying to reuse what I have and to reduce any waste. I am attempting to feed my family with a lot of vegetables but it seems very wasteful with the vegetable peel, root, and ends thrown away. I want to try to reuse the scraps to make broth or composite or repurpose it. My family loves noodle soup, so I decided to make vegetable stock from scraps first. Homemade Vegetable Broth From.

Vegetable Broth From Scraps

Turnips

rutabagas

artichoke.

Note:

last time, I put kale in my broth which turns out quite bitter. You can add some like a leave or two but too much can be extremely bitter.

Vegetable Broth From Scraps

How to Store Vegetable Scrap

When I prepare meals, there would always be peels from the skin or roots from the vegetable. What I do is to keep a Ziploc bag on the side and to label vegetable scraps and place it in the freezer. Daily when I prepare dinner, I use a lot of vegetables like carrot or onions. Most of the time the carrot skin goes in the organic. Now, I would save it in the Ziploc bag. Lately, I have been taking the celery ends in the garden to make it grow. Let’s see how that turns out.

Vegetable Broth Recipe

Ingredients:

1 tbsp. olive oil

2 garlic(minced)

1 large onion(chopped)

2 rib of celery(chopped)

3 carrots(chopped)

500ml water

3 cups of vegetable scraps

2 bay leaves

sprigs of parsley and thyme

salt and pepper for flavor

Instructions:

  1. Turn on the stove, once warm add olive oil.
  2. Add in garlic, stir once in a while to not let it burn.
  3. Once the garlic is cooked. Add in onions, celery, and carrot. Cook for 5-10minutes.
  4. In crockpot, put in the vegetables. Add water. Then the vegetable scraps, bay leaves, parsley, and thyme.
  5. Let the broth cook for 2-3hours.

My goal for this year is to make more homemade vegetable broth from scraps for my children and my husband. I want to build their immunity by adding more greens to their diet. More greens equal more energy. I want to have more control over what type of vegetable and the amount I can add to the broth especially with the salt content. Too much salt affect the body absorbing calcium. Also, this affects water retentions. Do consider making homemade vegetable broth from scraps.

Children the Importance of Calcium at an Early Age

There are a lot of different supplements out there. I find it tough to know what to take sometimes. I believe one of the important ones to take is calcium. We all know Calcium helps strengthen bones and teeth. Besides that, it will help with blood clots and nerve impulses, and regulate hearts rhythm. Our body gets calcium by either by everything food or through supplements. If we do not take enough, then it will come from our bones. Children the Importance of Calcium at an Early Age
