AdrianneHo_JohnFrieda_Leather-3AdrianneHo_JohnFrieda_Leather-5What’s all the fuss about alkaline…
SweatTheStyle_JuiceServedHere_AlkaMizuBy now many of us have heard of alkaline water. Some say it can help slow the aging process, regulate your body’s pH level, and prevent chronic diseases like cancer. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?

Alkaline water helps balance the body’s pH, which tends to be acidic because of our high acid food diet, stress and exposure to environmental toxins such as smog. It’s also an amazing way to stay hydrated and energized! Alkaline water is also rich in alkalizing compounds, including calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. This water can also act as an antioxidant, finding harmful free radicals and neutralizing them. Wanna give it a try? Grab a bottle of one of our favs from Juice Served Here to see the benefits it can bring to your everyday life!

Vegan Banana Bread

SweatTheStyle_VeganBananaBreadOrganic produce have a tendency to ripen fast. With our busy schedules we often run into the issue of not eating them in time and are forced to throw them away. When it comes to bananas, which are a great way to add manganese, fiber, biotin, and potassium to your diet, we have a great solution.

Vegan banana bread can be an awesome addition to your breakfast, a great afternoon snack, and even a nice treat after dinner. This moist and delicious bread will make you want to share this easy recipe with all of your friends and safe those over ripened bananas!

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 very ripe medium bananas, mashed (about 1 1/4 cups)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup plain soy milk yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom and two long sides of a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan with parchment, leaving a 2 inch overhang on each long side, and lightly coat with oil.

Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl. Whisk the bananas, sugar, yogurt, oil and vanilla together in another medium bowl. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula until the batter just comes together (it’s okay if there are lumps). Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes; tent the loaf with foil if it’s browning too quickly. Cool the loaf in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes, then lift it from the pan by the parchment overhangs and cool completely on the rack. Store the loaf in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

The Stairway to Fitness

AdrianneHo_IvyPark-6Sometimes the tools we need to workout are right in front of our face…
AdrianneHo_IvyPark-7 AdrianneHo_IvyPark-8In this case that would be stairs. Most people have access to stairs, which can be used as an excellent source for exercise! Incorporating stair climbing into your exercise routine is not only beneficial for fat-burning but can also give you amazing strength-building results. One of the main benefits of stair climbing is it’s natural ability to increase the muscle mass of your quadriceps and calves. The motion also gives you a slight upper body workout by pumping your arms, but if you add weights, you can increase the upper body benefits.

Studies have shown that a short, high-intensity exercise is just as effective at improving your fitness goals as doing cardio at a long, low-intensity. So whether you have stairs in your home, job, or at your local park, it’s time to grab some dumbbells and hit the nearest steps to challenge yourself to an awesome full body workout!
