Blanching is a technique that quickly heats and then very quickly cools your food. It also ensures your food, keeps its crisp, texture, and fresh color for as long as possible.

For green beans, the process is very simple. Heat a large pot of boiling water, and add a healthy pinch of salt to the water.

Once the water has come to a rolling boil, drop the green beans into the water and let them cook for about 30 seconds or until you’re happy with the brightness of their color.

Using a strainer or large, slotted kitchen spoon, transfer the green beans to an ice bath (large bowl of water with a few scoops of ice).

Let them rest for a couple of minutes and then remove them from the ice bath and reserve them in a large bowl.

At this time, you can season them of you as you like. My favorite is with a little extra salt sometimes some butter and always a little lemon juice for freshness. You can top it with toasted slivered almonds and some zested lemon too. Bon Appetit

How to Find Clothes to Start Our Fitness Journey

The world of fitness has never been more inclusive. Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or you’re a seasoned pro, there’s a workout routine and style of clothing to suit you. 

In the past, workout clothing has been quite one-dimensional. However, with the rise of athleisure and more people working out at home, there is now a huge range of workout clothing to choose from.

The most important thing when it comes to finding the right workout clothes is to make sure they are comfortable. If you’re not comfortable, you’re not going to enjoy your workout and you’re not going to be as motivated to keep going.

There’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to workout clothes, so it’s important to find something that suits your unique body type and workout routine. We will help you find the best yoga sets, with our tips on how to find workout clothes that are perfect for your unique routine!

You have to start by choosing the right fabric. The fabric of your workout clothes is hugely important and can have a big impact on your performance and comfort. If you’re doing high-intensity activities, you need a fabric that can keep up.

Look for fabrics with moisture-wicking and breathable properties.  As this will help keep you cool and comfortable throughout your workout. Cotton may be a popular choice for many people, but it tends to absorb sweat, so it’s best avoided if you’re doing high-intensity activities. 

Your routine may need a little more freedom of movement, such as yoga or Pilates. It’s best to choose fabrics with a bit of stretch in them. These will allow you to move freely without feeling restricted or uncomfortable. Similarly, if you’re planning an outdoor workout.  you’ll want high waist leggings that offer protection from the element.

Then it is important to choose clothes that fit. Finding clothes that fit well is one of the most important things to consider when choosing workout clothes. No matter how good the fabric is, the clothes won’t be comfortable or beneficial if they’re too loose or too tight.

It’s worth taking the time to measure yourself or try on a few different sizes and styles of workout clothes until you find the perfect fit. Not all brands size the same way, so it’s always worth checking the size charts and doing your research to make sure you’re ordering the right size for you. 

If you’re not sure, you can always email the brand for more information or ask for advice from the community. The last thing you want is to go through the hassle of finding the perfect clothes only to find that they don’t fit.

Finally, make sure you opt for clothing that allows you to move comfortably. If the clothes are too tight, you won’t be able to perform at your best and you’ll be constantly pulling and tugging at them. 

The same goes for clothes that are too loose – you’ll find yourself tripping over and constantly adjusting them. When in doubt, opt for something that fits snugly but still allows you freedom of movement.

Besides that, it is important to have in mind the type of workout that you are going to be practicing. Sometimes some pieces and workout clothes will work better for some sports or workouts than for others. Sometimes leggings will be better than shorts and sometimes shorts will be more beneficial for you than leggings. 

The same applies to the tops, sometimes long-sleeve tops are great options, while some other sports bra and shorts set will be the right choice. Everything will depend on how good and comfortable you feel, how much movement they allow you, and of course how they make you look.
