Useful Tips

You may already know all of this but just somethings I found out the hard way:

1. When a recipe calls for grated onions, finely chopped is what they mean. If you want an option its onion powder that is available readily. Onion paste does not cook well at all.

2. While making Marinara sauce add a pinch of sugar if you are using vine ripened tomotoes. That will get rid of the acidity in the tomoatoes.

3. While doing weights of any form in the gym always exhale on the contraction and inhale on the relaxation. ex: bicep curl; exhale bring the wt up; inhale taking it down.

4. Circuit training ( cardio+wts) is the best calorie burner.

5. Do strength training or extreme cardio (running long distance) with gaps giving your body time to recover and build muscles.

6. While making any soup, half a potato boiled and blended into the soup can make it really creamy and great tasting.

So, Eat well, exercise well and stay healthy... :)
