Coconut Chicken Salad with Warm Honey Mustard Vinaigrette | Ginas Skinny Recipes Warm oven-fried coconut chicken over a bed of baby greens, cucumber, tomato, shredded carrots topped with a hot honey mustard vinaigrette. It's the perfect mix of salty and sweet, warm and cold. I'm not sure what it is about spring, maybe the thought of having to get into a bathing suit in just a few more months, or maybe it's just the sunshine that switches my brain to want less soups and stews to large main dish salads. This salad has plenty of protein to keep you satisfied and the warmth of the chicken doesn't leave me feel like I'm missing something. Serve this for lunch or dinner; use any combination of salad fixins' and dig in! For the chicken I found the cornflake crumbs gave this a nice crispy texture, but unseasoned breadcrumbs would work just as well in their place. Ingredients: Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients; set aside. Preheat oven to 375°. Combine coconut flakes, panko, cornflake crumbs and salt in a bowl. Lightly season chicken with salt.

NO PAIN - NO GAIN Alison on Photography Served When my daughter Alison was born, in the tradition of a new parent, I began to photograph her, initially in a separate and private body of work. However, in the process of documenting Alison's growth, I developed a passionate interest in human relationships and capturing intimate moments in the lives of family and friends. This affected my photography in a profound way. Rather than the isolated subjects of my earlier work, I became interested in the strength of relationships, oftentimes using personal environments to amplify those conditions. My photographs of Alison, because of the nature of our relationship, are very much a father-daughter collaboration-Alison permitting me access to private moments of our life, which might, under different circumstances, be off-limits to a parent. The significance of these pictures emerges in retrospect.
10-Minute Yoga 'Supersets': Better than Another Hour of Yoga -... This year, after 15 years of yoga practice and transforming my body, I found myself hitting a plateau. Though my practice regularly involves power moves like jumping forward into Crow Pose and holding Warrior Pose for a long time, my muscle tone seemed to be stuck on autopilot: never decreasing, but never really going to that next level, either. My body, it seems, has become accustomed to the level of my practice. Whether it’s in weight loss or athletic training goals, hitting a plateau is normal. It’s the balancing point that happens any time the body gets used to what you’re asking of it, especially if you don’t ask any more. If you’re not getting out of bed some mornings a little sore and able to pinpoint the muscles you’ve worked the day before, then you might benefit from a shake-up, too. To move past the plateau, I could have just started practicing more. I know what some of you are thinking: “This chick owns a yoga studio and practices a ton … I don’t have that much time.”

Send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and you could be featured on the site! Name: Linda GoffAge: 44Height: 5'8"Before Weight: 303 pounds (possibly more -- I stopped getting on the scale) How I Gained It: "How in the world did this happen?" How did this former cheerleader become morbidly obese? For almost two decades, I tried to buy my way out of obesity, spending thousands of dollars on fad diets, weight-loss shakes and pills. Breaking Point: I realized that I couldn't afford to pay for gastric bypass surgery on my own and secretly hoped that if I were heavier, I'd be approved for the surgery by my insurance company -- maybe I would get the green light if I weighed 350 pounds or even 400? Everything with this scheme fell apart in 2007. I always believed that my body was my problem and my problem alone. How I Lost It: My first step was to realize that I didn't need to spend money on another get-thin-quick scheme. My weight loss was slow.
The Cans Festival - Banksy street exhibition | Pinewood Design THE public is making its mark on graffiti artist Banksy’s first British exhibition in three years as a whole street has been transformed into an art exhibition. The Cans Festival, a three-day street party of stencil art, kicks off yesterday in an old tunnel formerly used by taxis, which was vacated when Eurostar left its Waterloo terminal in London. Artists from as far afield as Brazil, Canada and Australia are also taking part. Huge installations include smashed up cars, a CCTV camera-laden tree, an ice cream van, a cut-out of the Queen, and statues as well as artwork on the walls. Boris Johnson also features in murals by a Dutch artist named Hugo Kaagman. In one piece – We Need Change – the politician’s face appears by a picture of a Smurf. From today the public can add to the exhibition with their own stencilling. Banksy said: “Graffiti doesn’t always spoil buildings, in fact it’s the only way to improve a lot of them. The free event is open to the public from 10am until 10pm on Monday.

How to Level Up in the Game of Life Ding! This may be the sweetest sound you can possibly hear when playing a role-playing game (henceforth referred to as an RPG). “DING!” or something similar depending on the video game you’re playing, means that your character completed a certain number of quests, killed a specific number of monsters, and ran enough errands to level up. Congratulations, or “grats!” It’s this particular reason that games like World of Warcraft, Rift, Oblivion, Everquest 2, and any other RPG are so damn addictive: there’s always another level to reach, another dragon to kill, and better armor to acquire. Today, we’re going to turn life into a giant role playing game. Since day one, the tagline for Nerd Fitness has been “Level up your life.” Today, you’re going to learn how. Don’t complain about your starting zone Let’s assume that you hit the random button when creating your character in World of Warcraft - you were hoping for a good looking elf and ended up with a goofy-looking ogre. That’s life. Nope. -Steve
