Welcome back to Reboot!

Happy Friday! Today, we’ve got a 2 part challenge!

1) Test your Plank skills.

  • Remember last week when we timed our forearm plank? Let’s try it again. Whether you do a full plank, forearm plank or do these at the wall, test your time today. Don’t forget to write it down and tell me.

2) We're working on our fruit and veggie challenge and boosting our metabolism! 

A  recent study found that whole grains may not only boost our fiber intake but also may boost our metabolism and reduce our calories! Among their many benefits, whole grains and fiber can also help to improve insulin sensitivity and glycemic control.

Need another way to boost your veggies and your whole grains? Try making Giada’s Mediterranean Salad with Farro or Ina’s Greek Grain Salad.

Farro is an ancient grain that is easy to make. All you have to do is let it cook on the stove while you 10 minute workout :) This is a great dish to bring to a cookout too! You can even shorten the farro cooking time by looking for 10 minute farro, available at most grocery stores. 

Can't find farro or need a gluten free grain? Substitute quinoa.

Ready? Set. Go!
