Jazz Apples and Walking at Home

Posted Jan 14 2011 11:40am

I think I have a new favorite apple: Jazz apples.

The other day I had mentioned that I like Fuji, Honeycrisp, and Gala apples . Well – Jazz is apparently a hybrid of Fuji and Braeburn. They were on sale at Whole Foods for $1.99/pound and I picked up a few for tasting.

They are so crispy and just the right sweetness. Juicy, even. I think they are the perfect apples. I’m not a big fan of Braeburn but when Braeburn mates with Fuji… a paragon. I would not use these to make homemade applesauce – I only use boring apples for that (like plain Braeburn).

Another new thing I tried was a new (free) workout video from ExerciseTV: Start Walking 2 Mile by Leslie Sansone (it’s on Amazon , too). It’s a 32 minute workout that is supposedly equivalent to a 2-mile walk. I think I believe it – I got my heart rate up and was sweating/panting a bit in the middle.

Leslie is a great instructor – she is fun and funny. She takes you through a basic walk, some kicks, sidesteps, kickbacks (hamstring curls), knee lifts, and probably a few more that I’m forgetting.

Walking posts:

Walking is my absolute favorite exercise (even more than yoga for me) and this video delivered. I can’t really walk outside at the moment because New York is freezing. It’s been reminiscent of Ithaca in terms of temperature and misery for the last couple of weeks. Gosh, I cannot wait until it’s spring.

My favorite thing to do in spring – go outside for a long walk and find new restaurants and small markets. I also like browsing museum gift shops and not buying anything. I don’t like or need clutter.
