Summer Harvest

Pin It
One of our neighbors is nice enough to share her tomatoes with us every year. She gives us plenty that sometimes we can't use them fast enough.

So I've been looking at these wonderful tomatoes on my counter for a few days now. And what do you do with all these juicy fruit? It is technically a fruit, yes?

.....make Bruschetta or as Giada would say it ---  “brus-ket-a” .
I just used what I had on hand....very simple. I mixed the chopped tomatoes with olive oil, basil, garlic, salt and pepper and placed in on a toasted baguette. 
Stick 'em in the toaster oven (at 350F) for another 45 seconds...and voila! Easy lunch!

For a quick Ab/Core workout, try this:

15 minute Core Training

Warning: Before beginning any fitness regimen, seek advice from your health care provider. If you feel any pain during your workout, stop immediately and seek medical attention. Pay attention to proper form (quality before quantity). Listen to your body, start out slow then advance.

Warm up and Stretch - 1-5 minutes
Bicycle (with or without a Chest Press) - 16 reps forward and 16 reps reverse
Reverse Crunches - 16 reps
Bridge Pose with Leg extension - 16 reps
Oblique Twist - 16 reps
Basic Crunch - 16 reps
Wood Choppers - 16 reps each side
Lunge and Twist - 16 reps
Low Lateral Skaters - 16 reps
Walking Push up - 8 - 16 reps
Cooldown and Stretch - 1-5 minutes

Feel free to mix and match or omit certain exercises depending on how much time you have to devote to core work.
