GIVING THANKS & COOKING UP A STORM
Our team members are sharing their favorite Fall recipes this week. First up, Sadie shares a Mediterranean twist on a classic autumnal dish.
Roasted Butternut squash and red onion with tahini and za’atar
1. Yoga stretches - We love to incorporate a few good yoga stretches into our evening or morning routines. Try some of our favorites for pain relief.
2. Protein - Protein fuels your body’s ability to repair muscles quickly. Try to have at least 10 grams within 30 minutes of your workout. Some of our go-to are eggs, greek yogurt or an apple with almond butter.
3. Myofascial Release - Not familiar with those foam cylinders you see on gym floors? Get to know the foam roller and learn more about self-myofascial release.
4. Hydration - If you are dehydrated, you may experience cramps and muscle spasms because your muscles are tender and weak. The Mayo Clinic says the average woman should consume about 9 cups of water per day. But remember, that goes up if you exercise. So add lemon juice or invest in an awesome water bottle (our favorite is the Camelbak.) Just do whatever it takes to be consistently hydrated.
