Nutrition Tip: Go Green with Zucchini!

zucchinipastaDid you know the Italian word “zucca” means “squash”!

Zucchini is a summer squash, as it is harvested in the summer months. Although we consider zucchini a vegetable due to its savory flavor and low caloric content (100g (2/3 cup) of zucchini = 15 calories), botanically zucchini is a fruit.

Zucchini can be consumed in various ways such as sautéed and added to egg white quiches, pasta dishes, fajitas, and veggie wraps/sandwiches, layered in a lasagna and casseroles, cooked straight on the grill, or eaten raw dipped in hummus or greek yogurt tzatziki dip.

Impress your friends by being creative with how you cut and present your zucchini, as featured in this week’s recipe, Zucchini Linguini!

Use a peeler to make thick linguini from a zucchini.

Ingredients:

Yield: 2 serving (1 serving =1 cup)

  • 2 tsp of olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 Tablespoon of Asiago cheese
  • 1/4 tsp of cracked black pepper

Directions:

Peel a zucchini from one end to the other making long shreds of zucchini. Continue shredding the zucchini until you reach the middle where the seeds start to show. In a skillet, heat 1 tsp of olive oil and garlic on medium heat. Add the zucchini shreds on the skillet and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes. Place the cooked zucchini shreds on a plate and sprinkle with asiago cheese and cracked black pepper. Serve hot or cold.

Celebrating Success: Donna Ford

before.after-sideAt FT we find great joy in our client’s successes. This week we celebrate Donna Ford. Donna is a Strategic Sourcing Analyst with Cumberland Gulf Group Companies. She joined FT Norwell in early April, taking advantage of the Great Jeans Promotion. Today, Donna had her 6 week Fitness Assessment and the results are simply awesome. In 6 weeks, Donna has lost 23 pounds, 15.5 inches and 3.1% body fat. An incredible accomplishment fueled by her commitment to improve her health and fitness. I had the opportunity to speak with Donna today and talk to her about her journey. Here’s her story.

Donna, why did you join FT?

I didn’t like the way I looked or felt and decided I was ready to make a change. I had done some research on local fitness facilities, and was attracted to FT because it was different and I knew I needed one-on-one attention to be successful.   I also liked the idea of a private studio. I can be myself at FT, get the encouragement I need, and  know that I am doing the right exercises the right way for me, unlike a  typical gym which offers little or no guidance. I believe I made the right.

What is your biggest accomplishment to date?

I am proud of myself for sticking to FT’s suggested diet and am very pleased with the results so far. It is a great feeling to watch that scale tick down each day and to watch my measurements shrink. I am also proud that I have stuck with my commitment of working out three times per week. The first three weeks were the most difficult, but with my personal trainer’s encouragement and support I was able to push myself past it.   Now at my sixth week, I know that  with each session and FT’s encouragement, I am able to accomplish more and more.

What do you want to accomplish next?

I want to keep the momentum going and drop a few more sizes. I am loving the challenge and the changes so far and look forward to what lies ahead.

Alicia, why do you think Donna has been so successful?

She has been 100% dedicated from the start. She asks a lot of questions – wanting to understand why we do certain exercise or why we recommend certain diet plans. She’s engaged in the process and that’s what makes a successful client. The first three weeks of any diet or exercise program are tough – real tough. I encouraged her to stick with it and trust in the process. The results are fantastic. It’s been a pleasure working with her.

Congratulations Donna. You are an inspiration to us all. Keep up the good work.

Nutrition Tip: Change up Your Oatmeal Routine with Berry Oatmeal Muffins

Berry Oatmeal Cakes 2via Fitness Together

Sick of eating that morning bowl of oatmeal for breakfast? Not crazy about the taste or texture of oatmeal? Try these super-nutritious spring oatmeal berry muffins for a change of pace!

Heart healthy oats are a filling whole grain that you should try to incorporate into your morning breakfast or as a midafternoon snack on most days of the week. Whole grains are considered “good” carbohydrates with their nutrient dense composition compared to processed white grain products. For better heart health, the recommendation is to consume at least 3 servings of whole grains everyday (remember, “3 is key”). Examples of whole grain products are oatmeal, granola bars, whole grain cereals, whole grain bread/English muffin, brown rice, quinoa, barley, whole grain pasta, and the list goes on! If you are not sure if a product is whole grain, the first ingredient on the food label’s ingredient list needs to say “whole grain” to be considered a whole grain product.

Try this week’s whole grain recipe, Berry Oatmeal Muffins!
