Thursday Tidbits

7 Mar

1. Fat and muscle weigh the same.

In the body, fat takes up a ton more room than muscle would dream, but, five pounds of muscle is five pounds of muscle, and five pounds of fat is five pounds of fat. Although it’s healthy to have more muscle, a little fat is needed to keep the body insulated!

2. The importance of taking a break.

When things are going 90mph, breaks are a savior! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC says, “Short breaks can help increase your concentration, alertness, and work speed.”  I know that I wouldn’t be able to function without a little me time! To refresh, I like to take a quick bath, read a book, or rest for 15 minutes or so, whatever time permits. Right now the book A Will & A Way is taking me away.

What do you like to do when you take a break? What book are you currently reading?

3. Rice is always more fun dressed up.

In the mix: brown rice, chickpeas, carrots, peas, avocado, strawberries, and Bolthouse Farms  Creamy Honey Mustard Vinergerette Yogurt Dressing. Has anyone else tried any of the Bolthouse Farm Yogurt Dressings? They’re all so so good.

4. A throwback for Throwback Thursday
