There are many types of greens; some are stand-alone vegetables like collard and kale and others such as beet, turnip and mustard greens are a happy by-product of other delicious vegetables.
There are also essentially two types of greens: tender which require a quick cooking with no additional liquid and hearty greens which require a bit of braising to make them delicate and wonderful to eat. Which do you prefer, hearty or tender?
Pilates (puh-LAH-teez) has rapidly become one of the most popular exercise routines in the country. Chances are excellent you’ve heard someone talking about the benefits. But, what the heck is Pilates anyway?
It’s a form of exercise, developed by German born, Joseph Pilates, a century ago. Pilates is a body conditioning routine that builds flexibility, long, lean muscles, strength and endurance in the legs, abdominal muscles, arms, hips, and back. The emphasis is on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing to allow adequate oxygen flow to muscles, developing a strong core or center, and improving coordination and balance. Pilates’ flexible system allows for exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginning to advanced levels of fitness. No muscle group is under or over trained. Learn More about Pilates.
