Hi Healthy Living Junkies! Want a tasty way to eat your greens and get healthy omega 3’s? Try my new healthy teriyaki sword fish recipe. A 3-ounce serving of grilled swordfish provides 108 milligrams of EPA, and 656 milligrams of DHA. EPA and DHA are omega-3 fats that are found in fatty fish and shellfish. It is also a great source of Vitamin D. With a firm meaty texture, swordfish is a delicious way to change up your healthy protein.
Healthy Teriyaki Swordfish Salad
2 fillets of sword fish 5-7 oz
1 roma tomato, diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/4 cup of onions
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 wedge of lemon (optional)
1-2 tablespoon olive oil
1 bag of mixed greens salad
3 cloves garlic
minced2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
3/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup water
Directions for Swordfish
Take the soy sauce, sugar, garlic, vinegar and ginger and mix to create marinade. Add uncooked sword fish and marinade in fridge for 1-2 hours. Heat olive oil in a pan on medium high. Add onions and sautee until lightly brown around the edges, about 2-4 minutes. Remove swordfish from marinade and put in pan. Discard marinade. Pan grill fish for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked all the way through. Arrange salad in 2 bowls and add in tomatoes and swordfish and onions.
Direction for Dressing
In a 1 pint glass jar or larger, combine the garlic, ginger, olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and water. Cover the jar with a tight fitting lid, and shake well. Remove lid, and heat jar in the microwave for 1 minute just to dissolve the honey. Let cool, and shake well before serving. Store covered in the refrigerator.

Hi Healthy Living Junkies! There is a common misconception “skinny” is sexy. For most women, including myself at one time, the ideal figure is a skinny figure, with a flat stomach, arms that doesn’t jiggle, and fat free legs. I was scared to lift weights, because I “didn’t want to look like a guy”. Instead I would hit the cardio machine, running on the treadmill, hitting the elliptical, and using the “girly” weights, avoiding anything that was, in my mind, exercise for men. It took me years to realize my mistake.
When I finally started to weight train because I wasn’t getting the results I wanted, I realized all of my fears and misconceptions about lifting weights were wrong. I started seeing my body become stronger, my stomach was flatter, and my body fat was decreasing. I ate the same types of foods I always ate: Lean cuts of protein, fresh vegetables and fruits, and complex unprocessed carbohydrates. But now instead of having a “pancake” butt, I had curves on my glutes, and was finally able to fill out my jeans.
Weight Training for Women
Get sexy and feminine curves without the fear of building bulk
When a woman weight train, she builds soft round curves to her body, the feminine type of curves. Her stomach will be flat, because muscles use more calories (energy) to sustain, increasing your metabolism. From doing biceps and triceps exercises, a woman’s arms will be firm and will not jiggle, rocking that spaghetti tank top or strapless cocktail dress. Her legs will develop shape, giving you the desirable “hour glass shape”. For most women, the problem area, her butt will be firmer, and there will be minimal fat on her legs. And as far as looking like a guy? It will not happen. A woman’s body is designed differently than a man’s. We do not have as much testosterone as a man, so you will not get “big” like a man. You will achieve the sexy bikini look, with toned arms, flat abs, and a round fuller butt. So go ahead and grab the weighs. You won’t regret it. =)

Hi Healthy Living Junkies! We all love watching funny videos, but did you know laughter is actually good for you? We all know it feels great to laugh, but did you know it was good for you too? Experts compare laughing to exercise; both having the ability to boost your health. Sure, you know about the infinite benefits of an active lifestyle, but did you know that laughter supports the immune system, improve blood pressure, stimulate the organs and reduce pain? Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships, and supporting both physical and emotional health.
Here Are Some Reasons Why Laughter Is The Best Medicine:
1) Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
2) Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
3) Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins, which are also released when you workout, promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
4) Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems. Diet and exercise are also very important when it comes to improving your overall health, in addition to giving you more energy. The best part is, you will also look better in your clothes and have a sexy midsection!
In short, laughter both stimulates and soothes, similar to the way you feel after a good workout. So go ahead a watch those funny clips on Youtube and laugh away! Your body will thank you for it!
