New feature - Muscle of the month
September – The Quadriceps
The Quadriceps muscles also know as the Quads for short are situated in the front of the thigh.
As the word suggests there are 4 of them!
They are responsible for straightening the leg from the knee and extending the hip
The also help support the knee cap. The Quads are important from getting up out of a chair, climbing stairs and walking. So all in all it’s important to keep strong Quads.
Exercises you can do such as squats are great for the quads. Ask at class if you want more info on exercises for Quads or correct technique
Recipe         - Granola        
              2 tbsp vegetable oil
                  125ml maple syrup
                                    2 tbsp honey
                                    1 tsp vanilla extract
                                    300g rolled oats
                                    50g sunflower seeds
                                    4 tbsp sesame seeds
                                    50g pumpkin seeds
                                    100g flaked almonds
                                    100g dried berries (find them in the baking aisle)
                                    50g coconuts flakes or desiccated coconut
1.              Heat oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2. Mix the oil, maple syrup, honey and vanilla in a large bowl. Tip in all the remaining ingredients, except the dried fruit and coconut, and mix well.
Tip the granola onto two baking sheets and spread evenly. Bake for 15 mins, then mix in the coconut and dried fruit, and bake for 10-15 mins more. Remove and scrape onto a flat tray to cool. Serve with cold milk or yogurt. The granola can be stored in an airtight container for up to a month.
This recipe is from the BBC good food guide. I would suggest reducing the amount of syrup and honey you use and maybe adding some dried fruit or even better fresh fruit when you come to eat it!!!
Eat seasonal
Eating seasonally is a good way to get many vitamins and minerals into your diet.
You can easily find out what’s in season by checking online.
September is a great month to eat courgettes
Courgettes are so delicious very low in calories and high in water. They have loads of Vitamin A and C and are a good source of folates and potassium
Roast them or stuff them with feta cheese or use for courgetti as an alternative to pasta.
We are still collecting your old bras for breast cancer please pass to me at class or put in the bra bin in Aughton. Thanks to everyone who has already donated.
You’re only one workout away from a good mood!!
