Healthy Salad Dressings Are Easy To Make!

Healthy Salad VeggiesEating a salad can be a great way to get some of the essential nutrients that your body needs, reduce your caloric intake and stay healthy!  The usual salad ingredients are full of fiber and water.  As a result, they'll cause you to feel a wee bit fuller so you’ll likely need less of a main course to complete your meal.
However, those store bought salad dressings can quickly sabotage your health and fitness efforts.  They're quite often full of unnecessary (hidden) sugars, fat, chemicals and preservatives.
So, for years now, I've been experimenting with various recipes for making my own dressings.  They're usually quite simple, quick to put together and not all that much harder than simply reaching into the fridge for that store-bought bottle, but MUCH healthier.

Exercise In This HOT Weather? You Bet, Just Be Careful!

Training In Heat TipsIn Victoria we're used to having awesome weather.  In fact, we can be smug about it and will often take almost any opportunity we get to share pictures of our good fortune with the less fortunate suffering through yet another snowstorm or thunder shower anywhere east of the ocean around our Island.  But, lately, we've been experiencing slightly more than our normal amount of beautiful, hot sunny days.  In fact, we've even been shattering records that have been around for over 100 years!  It's not that we don't LOVE it, but it can cause some concern for those not used to exercising outside in the heat this early in the year.  So, with that in mind, we'd like to offer some hints, tips and advice to keep you safe and healthy during your outdoor exercise.

Be Wary Of The Internet And Those Fitness Apps!

There's An App For ThatI've been offering Personal Training options and Outdoor Boot Camps in the Victoria area for over 8 years and with the great weather and outdoor locations many more fitness companies have joined the ranks offering all kinds of ways to get fit.  When I started Alter Ego Fitness Experience, there were maybe 10 similar (outdoor boot camp style) companies in the Greater Victoria area.  Now, 8 years later, a quick Google search will reveal that there are probably closer to 40 or 50 companies competing for the same clients.  This is nothing but a win-win for you, the client, or is it?
