Will fall upon us and the holidays approaching fast, it is important to focus on your health and wellness! The best way to avoid the holiday weight gain and keep you immune system in top shape is to ensure you stay on track with your current fitness program or get re-energized by starting another. Here are a few tips to help you along the way:

  1. Get Outside! The cool whether is best for getting your body acclimated to a new walking, hiking, biking or running program.
  2. Stay home and cook! Look for easy, healthy alternative recipes for warming meals like chili, meatloaf, or even try stir-fry. Think about taking advantage of seasonal foods like squash to mix-up you dinner routine.
  3. Stay hydrated! A cold bottle of water might be the last thing you are thinking about as the temperatures dip.       Hot tea is a great way to ensure you take in additional fluids throughout the day.
  4. Set a short-term fitness goal! Short-term goals are a great way to keep yourself motivated, whether it is a weight-loss goal, or the number of workouts you want to complete each month.       Try challenging a friend or family member to reach the same goal for even more motivation.

The team at Plexus Fitness would be happy to help with any of your fitness related needs. Visit our website to find out more about how we can help!

Recipe of the Month:Baked Apples

Baked Apples:A Great Addition to the Thanksgiving Table

4 large good baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, or Jonagold
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup currants or chopped raisins
1 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples. Remove cores to 1/2 inch of the bottom of the apples. It helps if you have an apple corer, but if not, you can use a paring knife to cut out first the stem area, and then the core. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes about 3/4-inch to an inch wide.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture. Top with a dot of butter (1/4 of the Tbps). Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream on the side.
Makes 4 servings.


From the Deli: Get to Know Your Cheese

Brilliat Savarin 

Region :    Ile-de-France  Country :    France

Cheese Type :    Bloomy: Buttery & Rich
Milk Type :    Pasteurized Cow
Wine Pairing :    Sparkling wines
Wheel Weight :    2 lbs.
Rennet :    Animal
Age :    6-8 weeks

 Description :
“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are.” So said the gastronome Brillat Savarin. Being cheese experts, we’ll tell you that if you like this cheese you are a genius. The best triple-creme we’ve found, ripened in Murray’s caves, means 75% butterfat, and a thin, edible, snowy rind with nary a whiff of ammonia. All fresh, lactic flavor with an edging of mushroomy balances each buttercream icing bite. Pasteurized, yes, but masterful as the many bloomy rinds from Normandy are. Cut that fat with bubbles, from California to Champagne to Italian.

Serve a selection of cheeses before the meal or as the final course, presentation is key. Accent your cheese tray with fresh or dried fruits, nuts, and flowers or leaves. Call the catering department if you would like us to put together a selection of cheeses for you.
