The 10 Healthiest Business Hotels in the U.S.
A long while back the Wall Street Journal--Marketplace Section--had an informative article on the pros/cons of buying organic produce, meats and dairy. The article was fair and balanced and basically said that:
It took a year before we were sold.
But even at the very beginning we took notice. There was never, ever, a wet spot under our mat. Ever. Wow. We are BIG sweaters. Big. Ask anyone. We pour. At one point in our Bikram Yoga practice, we were offered a 3rd towel. We sweat that much. So having a mat completely impervious to liquid is a wonderful thing.
But it is what we noticed after a year that has made us believers.
Some like it hot and some like it not.
Some like it hard and some like it soft.
Some like it early and some like it late.
Some like yoga and some are dumb. ;)

Forget every other energy/protein bar review you’ve read. This is different. We dig into the nutrition data to SHOW you how the bars stack up. Taste is subjective. Numbers aren’t. And nothing beats a side-by-side comparison.
Our analysis will help determine if you’re getting the “most” out of your bar. You decide what “most” means. Is it taste? Protein? Natural ingredients? Low Sugar? All of these? This post will make you think twice about your favorite chocolate covered bar.
Our ideal bar:
Have you seen this jar before?
He's well known in quick cooking circles for his garlicky flavor and flexible demeanor. He's also a rather simple fellow made up of diced tomatoes, canola oil, fresh garlic, onions, distilled vinegar, salt, basil, and spices. He's not too salty (180mg, 8% DV in 2 T), and he's quite agile, likely because at 275 calories for all 12 oz, he's a light on his base.
Track him down. You won't be sorry.
It's an overused term, but apt for the many who are denied athletic freedom by their Monday through Friday workweek grind. Come Saturday "Weekend Warriors" are eager and fearless despite unconditioned muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons.
