Mouthgasmic Summer Fare...

With summer here, it is prime grilling time. Light up the grill and kick off the season with these fresh ideas and a recipe for grilled shrimp and vegetable kabobs. Grilling is a healthy way to prepare food for many reasons.

1. Grilling Decreases Fat
Instead of cooking in fat, the fat drips off of the food, which decreases the overall fat content of the meat.

2. Grilling Retains Moisture
Grilling sears the food, which helps retain moisture. This means added fats such as butter are unnecessary, which further helps to reduce total calories....

On the other hand putting your face into freezing cold black water with weeds that try to strangle you? Now that’s scary.

I’ve come to this conclusion because I recently engaged in a sport much, much “sexier” than triathlon: rock climbing. Rock climbing is about 10x sexier than triathlon. A sport where you have to properly utilize a rope to not die? Very sexy. Here’s a few more reasons why rock climbing is super sexy:

Ironman Coeur D'Alene Race Report - Wow. Where do I begin. I’ve had a dream for the past 6 years of one day qualifying for the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona, HI.
