10 Refreshing Spring Salad Recipes

Spring is here! For some parts of Canada, the weather doesn’t feel like it’s warming up anytime soon. Hopefully, Mother Nature will grant a pleasant wish for warmer weather. Regardless, the season temperature will change and our diets will have to move away from the comfy foods to cleaner foods like salads as we prepare our bodies for the beach weather. You probably got started with your spring-cleaning by re-organizing and de-cluttering your home. Now, it’s time to spring clean your bodies by introducing cleansing ingredients to a refreshing salad. Here are the top 10 spring salads to enjoy for the season.

If you're sitting on a milk crate, reading this on a laptop perched on some wobbly 2 x 4's and some sawhorses scavenged from an alley, I hate to break it to you, but it's time to upgrade.  With all the technology we use, the ability to telecommute, and so many of us having jobs that require us putting in a few hours working at home, having a home office has probably never been so important.  Check out some attractive, easy and cost-effective ideas for your home office upgrade.

Speaking of changing the clock and daylight savings ...

It's that time of the year...again. You ask: "What time is it?” It's that terrible time of year when we lose an hour of our precious sleep.

 

REMEMBER: this Sunday, the 9th of March at 2 A.M. we push it forward to 3 A.M...all of Canada except: Saskatchewan (except Denare Beach and Creighton), Fort St. John, Charlie Lake, Taylor, Dawson Creek and Creston in the East Kootenays of BC. 

 

I don't know about you, but I love my sleep. One of my most favourite feelings is the realisation that, when I wake up at 5 o'clock in the morning and look at my alarm clock, I can sleep for another hour or (if I'm lucky) hour and a half. Bliss. But how in the world would I ever experience that without my clock? Nowadays a clock is almost like an entrainment centre and there's something for everyone. You doubt that? Let's take a look...

Polar Loop and Bluetooth Heart Rate Sensor H7.jpg

The Polar Loop is the latest in a series of activity trackers that can help you make the right choices while having fun along the way. Over the past couple weeks, I had the opportunity to test the Polar Loop Activity Tracker with the Polar H7 Heart Rate Sensor and here’s my take on them:

Design & Create Your Own Stylish Master Bedroom

       Bedroom

For many of us, the Master Bedroom is the last room in the house to be fully decorated and furnished. This may be owing to the fact that it's probably the least likely room to be shown to our visitors, so maybe it's the safest room to leave undecorated when furnishing our homes. In any case, I have recently learned that February is Bedroom Month. Who knew? It probably has something to do with Valentine's Day. So maybe now's the time to finally finishing decorating the one room that we spend more time in than any otherthe master bedroom. If you'd like a few suggestions on just how to accomplish this goal, click through and read my blog!

Review: PowerBall 250Hz AutoStart Gyroscopic Exercise Tool

by Blogger on ‎01-31-2014 07:22 PM - last edited on ‎02-21-2014 02:45 PM by Blog Editor in Chief

fs-tech-blog-powerball.jpg

I’m at the gym four days a week; it’s part of a bigger picture plan to get into the best shape ever and join Future Shop’s Elliott Chun on one of those ridiculous Tough Mudder things that he does. 

 

I’m also a fair-weather rock climber, hitting in-door gyms across the lower mainland in search of heights that aren’t high enough to trigger my crippling fear of heights.


What do both of these activities have in common? They’ve both exposed how woefully unprepared my grip is, and how weak my wrists have been in the past. Today we’re looking at the PowerBall AutoStart 250Hz. What is it? It’s the path to better wrist and grip strength, and it’s the goofiest thing you’ll do all day.

Blendtec Blends Smoothies To Perfection

Blendtec Smoothies

 

Smoothies in the winter, say what? You heard correctly. Perhaps this refreshing drink isn’t seasonal, but it sure is good for you during the winter months. I understand that you’d prefer to cozy up with something warm like soup or coffee during the cold season.  But a healthy smoothie is packed with vitamins and antioxidants, which can give your immune system a boost. In addition, a delicious smoothie can help prevent the common cold during the long winter months.  Another great reason to drink smoothies is to help detox your system, after you’ve over-indulged on the gluttonous holiday foods. It’s a refreshing way to get back to your healthy eating patterns and fight the bulge.

Blendtec is widely famous for its “Will It Blend?” YouTube series. If you are like me, you’re amazed and shocked at how they blend even the latest gadgets, like an iPhone 5s Gold. Yes, they turned it into Gold dust. I must say, it was hard to fathom destroying an iPhone 5s, yet impressed by its blending power. Every video proves that Blendtec is a high-powered blender that can blend pretty much anything, even Justin Beiber
