A fun spinning class, A review & Easy chinese food
Posted Sep 08 2010 12:00am
Yesterday I went to a spinning class at the gym that confirmed how fancy is my gym Have you heard of RealRyder ? A spinning bike that moves? It is a spin bike that moves side to side, which mimics banking a turn on a road bike. Learning how to make the bike lean to left and right was a bit challenging but the true challenge is when you stand up and pedal while trying to keep the bike relatively centered. The side-to-side movement of the bike feels almost like riding on the road. I was working way harder than normal spinning class. In 45 min I was all sweat and could feel my abs and arms working a lot more. If you have a chance to try one, I highly recommend it. It’s a lot of fun!
Breakfast was all GREEN
a GM made with spinach, almond milk, frozen banana and GREEN MAGMAbarley grass
I received this a while ago from Stephanie and finally remembered to try it
Benefits of Green Magma:
• Is made of organic barley grass powder that dissolves easily into water
• Boosts energy levels
• Enhances regularity
• Improves skin, hair and nail condition
• May have cardiovascular benefits
Recommended Use: Blend 2 teaspoons of Green Magma into 8 ounces of water or juice. Drink twice daily on an empty stomach for best results.
It does not have a strong taste like Amazing Grass, which is good because I prefer to have smoothies with the taste of the ingredients. In term of benefits? Sounds promising but I’ll have to let you know in about a month or so (if I can remember taking it everyday )
The chinese food that is served in restaurants is unhealthy and time consuming to prepare it. Furthermore, it’s not the real chinese food that chinese people eat at home. What we have then? Here’s an example of food that is healthy, simple and tasty
Chinese green bean and garlic (fresh garlic please!)
cut it by hand
neutral oil, minced garlic
Stir-fry for 1-2 min, add salt, 1/2 cup of water, cook covered at medium for 5 min and it’s done!
To make steamed egg I used 1 whole egg + 1 egg white, salt
hydrated dry scallops (optional)
For 1-2 eggs, add about 1/2 cup water, 1/2 tsp salt. Steam for 15 min
I don’t like plain white rice so I made a mix of black rice, rolled oats and some unripped kabocha
dinner was served in <20 min
