Three-Week Body Makeover The secret to dropping pounds and inches quickly is high-intensity walking workouts. But don't panic—you don't have to run for miles or lift 50-pound dumbbells. What's high intensity for someone who's less fit may be low for you, or vice versa. The point is to push out of your comfort zone so you boost your calorie burn an extra 25 to 50 percent in the same amount of time—and incinerate another 75 calories over the course of the day to boot. This firm-up plan consists of three parts: a walking workout to burn fat, body shaping with weights, and tummy-toning calisthenics.

Guide to Common Edible Wild Plants It’s often said that the last thing you need to worry about when in a survival situation is what you’re going to eat.

However, it is possible to familiarize yourself with edible wild plants before you get into a survival situation, in which case you’ll have a good idea of which wild plants you can eat if necessary.

Shaved Zucchini Salad with Parmesan & Pine Nuts It’s hot outside and after roasting a pork shoulder earlier this week at 1 million degrees, I felt like something with no heat required would be best. Not to mention, many of you have zucchini coming out your ears this time of the year.

How can anyone be mad at that? Last week I made a batch of these Strawberry Banana Nut Oatmeal Cookies before coming out to work the second weekend of Coachella, mostly for the few guys that I work with because I get in “mom mode” like that sometimes. Well, let me tell you, I should have doubled the size of that batch because these things disappeared almost instantly. This was probably my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe to date, and the guys I fed them to (even the picky eaters) agreed!
