There has been a lot of attention and concern regarding a common ingredient found in store-bought milk alternatives like almond milk and soy milk. A large percentage of these non-dairy milks contain Carrageenan and this food additive has been linked to digestive diseases and even colon cancer. As a person who drinks both soy milk and almond milk on a daily basis, I began to search for recipes to make my own almond milk to ensure that it is in its purest and healthiest form possible! I never knew that making almond milk could be so easy and I wanted to share what I learned with my readers and encourage you to try making this delicious and healthy milk right at home!
Many of us know what we need to do to have a successful race. But here, we are going to talk about what NOT to do during a race!
Here are 5 things you should never do:
1. Never try a new morning or breakfast routine the day of a race. It cannot be stressed enough that all of your training runs are like a dress rehearsal for race day. You are practicing what foods give you energy during a run and you are learning how often you need to drink. You are also learning what shoes work the best for you and how much time to allow between eating and the start of the race. The last thing you should be doing is trying something new on race day. Go with what you know works!
While training for a marathon, the long weekend runs are the key to your training program as they improve your endurance levels and help your body be prepared for race day. Each long run that you complete, you are pushing back your endurance limit and teaching your body to run for greater amounts of time and distance.
Running long gets your feet used to being lifted up and down tens of thousands of times each hour. These long runs can also be used as a dress rehearsal for race day and you learn which sports drink works best for you, when to take sports gels, or how often you will need to drink. You also learn which top and shorts feel the best during the longer mileage.
Typically, the longest training run for the marathon is between 20-22 miles.
The public has been led to believe that all meat is created equal. A chicken is a chicken is a chicken, right?
I bet that if people were asked, the majority of American’s would believe that no matter what an animal is fed, the nutritional value of its products remains the same.
Unfortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Both an animal’s diet and lifestyle have a substantial influence on the nutrient content of its products.
