Kicking It Up a Notch After the Holidays
The holidays are over and it’s time to kick it up a notch! Eating right and organizing a fitness program were high on your list of New Year’s resolutions — But it’s January and it’s cold and the holidays have left you craving some good old-fashioned comfort foods. Here’s how to get both.
Walking isn’t fancy but it’s easy and it burns as many calories as jogging. Jumping rope is an inexpensive way to get your heart rate up. A good pair of shoes and a jump rope will aim you towards a healthier you, while toning your buttocks, calves and thighs. Invite a friend or walk with your dog. Walking gets you outdoors and it’s fun, too! Walk one day and jump rope the next.
Getting Back on Track with California Raisins
Those old-fashioned comfort foods and eating right go hand in hand with California raisins. These easy, gourmet meals will keep you satisfied while sticking to a fitness program.
At the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside, Chef Paul Fischbach, our “Look Who’s Cooking with California Raisins” Chef of the Month, bristles at the mere thought of hunger and mediocre cuisine. He makes sure that his guests never have a chance to experience either. Chef Fischbach chooses only the finest ingredients, including California raisins, for his exquisite pastas, sizzling steaks, flavorful fajitas or fresh seafoods.
