It's the weekend! Last weekend of the 2018 winter Olympics, the remaining Lunar New Year family get together, and February! Crazy that it's almost March and we're just now having close to freezing temperatures at night and morning. Time to pile on the blankets and socks and eat some 饺子.
A moveable feast of food and cocktails around Vancouver means filling up on the likes of smoked mackerel with miso & #mackerel#chicharrones at @labattoir_van or oozing, good #chorizo#queso at @lamezcaleriayvr
My world was turned upside down by a migraine for 3 days. I existed on pedialyte, water, peppermint tea, and veggie broth. Tonight, I am human again! I made sticky sesame tofu in a sweet and tangy sauce with udon noodles. It felt good to want to be in the kitchen again. 🌱💚🍴
What does it take to consume 8,000 calories — the equivalent of about 20 plates of lasagna or 40 scoops of ice cream — every day?
Research has shown that a typical male elite cross-country skier must consume 7,000 to 8,000 calories a day — more than three times the caloric needs of an average male — to meet the energy demands of the sport. Female elite skiers must eat about 3,500 to 4,000 calories a day — about double the calories consumed by the average woman. (A Swedish study found that during the hardest training days it can reach 8,126 for men and 4,780 for women — about double the calorie needs of Kenyan marathon runners.) #dietingtips#crossfit#movingtonorway#eat#eatup#crosscountryskiing#olympics
