You will find our customary comprenhensive research on Montreal's fitness-focused hotels and hotel gyms; Montreal's health clubs, lap pools, and run routes; Montreal's healthy restaurants; a few retail stores to gear up; and a lot more.

For chicken breast devotees looking to switch up their protein consumption, don't forget about pork tenderloin. While I've always enjoyed the other white meat, it was a surprise to learn that pork tenderloin is slightly leaner than a skinless chicken breast! Who knew?

After 7 years of trying to have a child, we were blessed with our first this past June.
As most mothers and fathers will convey, the initial 8 weeks of parenthood certainly does pose quite a few challenges. However, I've noticed that my triathlon and marathon training--believe it or not--has helped me adjust to life with a newborn. How? The similarities between raising a newborn and training/competing in marathons and triathlons are surprisingly numerous:
Here I sit, the night before a big race -- America's Finest City 1/2 marathon.
My stomach feels funny -- almost sick. Maybe i'm nervous. Maybe it's the Thai food I just ate. There's a greater than slight chance it's all the wine I consumed last night! (What was I thinking? HELLO, I wasn't!).
Why we like deli meat:
It is an inexpensive, convenient, and calorie efficient source of protein. Ham, turkey, roast beef, or whatever your preferred flavor, it's yummy between two slices of bread, stuffed in a pita, chopped over a salad, or my personal favorite, wrapped around a pickle.
It's not only oil and gas prices that are jumping each month. Titanium, carbon fiber, and to a lesser extent, aluminum bikes are climbing like a cyclist on Alpe d'Huez.
Why? You can thank the aircraft manufacturing industry. Demand for newer and better planes and other flying craft is going "up, up, up". Which, in turn, means the demand for precious metals and synthetic fibers used throughout the plane-making process like titanium and carbon fiber, also "takes off". Titanium is made by refining and melting an ore extracted from sand--raw materials equal fixed supply.
Over the last week I?ve seen the following headline a number of times: ?Curry and Onions May Prevent Colon Cancer.? While the caption is right to a certain extent--test subjects who were at higher risk for polyps than the general population did demonstrate a lower incidence of polyp occurrence--it?s more complicated than simply loading up on onion rings and hitting the Indian buffet.
