Cooking with Tea

Did you know that you can also cook with tea? Here to share one of her healthy recipes was Sarah Hurt from T by Sarah. She mixed us up a Green Tea Pasta Salad – the pasta was cooked in green tea!

According to Sarah, boiling pasta in green tea can actually make your it healthier! The noodles soak up the antioxidants from the tea and the green tea adds a subtle earthy flavor to the pasta. Dried tea leaves can also add crunch and flavor to rubs on fish, meat or poultry. Brewed tea can be used as a braising liquid or as a seasoning for dressings or marinades. Tea is also a great addition to summer desserts, syrups, ice creams and sorbets.

Yoga

If you’re schedule is already filling up this summer and you haven’t made it out to the gym, we’ve got the best stretches you can do anytime, any place! Judi Bar from The Cleveland Clinic demonstrated them:

  • This pose can be done if you are seated in one place for a long period of time (car, bus, airplane) = Seated Cat Curl
  • Here is a pose to do before you garden = Easy Back Bend
  • This is a great pose to do before you run, golf, or tennis = Hamstring stretch on a ledge
  • Lots to do?  Try this pose to focus = Tree Pose
  • Want to cool down try this breath = Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth as if you are blowing out of a straw.
