During the past several weeks, I've been wearing and testing Bolle's new "Draft" performance sunglasses with photochromic lenses during cycling and running workouts. Bolle provided Athletic-Minded Traveler with a few complimentary models (full disclosure) for testing purposes, but as with all of our product reviews, the freebies do not influence our opinions--our credibility is always paramount.
We searched, tested and tweaked. This recipe is a winner! We've made it twice, and it's a crowd pleaser.
What's to like? Look at the ingredients -- you won't find a recipe with more zucchini. We doubled the amount called for in every other recipe we viewed. And we cut down on the oil. The extra green means a very moist bread. Last, rather than "shredding", we "pulverized" our squash via a small electric chopper. (We have a Black & Decker and it's only $22 on Amazon.)
So many of us tech-entrepreneurs have Steve to thank for our jobs--pun intended. Without him and other tech visionaries, our careers would be much different--probably a lot more conventional and less inspiring. This cartoon by Steve Breen really sums up Steve's legacy:
And if you have never listened to Steve's Commencement address at Stanford University in 2005, you should. It's riveting:
Let's get something straight. If someone orders an entree salad, they are looking for something sensible to eat. The presumption is that the salad is not a calorie bomb. And they don't want to be left hungry. It's called an "entree" for a reason.

Editor's Note: This is the first in a 3 part series detailing one person’s experience with the HCG Diet, a weight-loss method that has sparked controversy among doctors, media and the general medical community. Named the "HCG Diet" because followers inject themselves daily with the human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG), a hormone produced by pregnant women. Detractors such as Mehmet Oz of Oprah fame argue that trial studies show that HCG is no more effective than a placebo.

From Yoga to Bootcamp
I workout religiously and I like routine. My “normal” 6 days a week sweat extravaganza includes a Hot Vinyasa Flow Class, and/or a Yoga Sculpt Class (heated Yoga combined with Weight Training and Cardio), and/or Barry’s Bootcamp, which is a combination of Cardio/Treadmill intervals with weight training etc. It works for me.
