Yours for the walking. One hour. Two and a half miles along a bluff overlooking the Pacific; down a winding unmarked trail to a really beautiful beach. Walk to the end. Get brave for a few seconds, time the waves, wade around the rocks. All yours.
Love fresh corn on the cob but don't want the butter or salt? Try one of these: Chili-Lime Corn Gloss or Mustard Lemon Dressing. Whisk up three ingredients in two minutes. Get a super flavorful sauce that brings out the sweetness of summer corn without overpowering it.

A two and a half-minute vacation. 150 seconds in slow motion. A good Sunday pace. Look at a breathtakingly beautiful place. And do nothing else. It's just a couple of minutes. And it's Sunday. Just press Play.
This was all set to be a totally seasonal, local peach upside down cake until yesterday's virtual hike on the Nu'Alolo trail put me in a Hawaii state of mind.

A beautiful, free 7.5-mile walk. Three hours outdoors; three hours outside the routines of your mostly indoor life. Let this be an example of three or four hours well spent and a thousand or so calories burned.
Super Grain meets Super Weed in a bowl. I made a salad with a nutritional profile that reads like a piece of salmon. It doesn't taste like one, but it's delicious and satisfying; really easy to make; and way cheaper than salmon.
This caramelized squash & onion pizza is a perfect example of Better being Cheaper. It's not just that it's a great under-$2 pizza. It's a great pizza, period. A summer squash, an onion, some grated cheese, and 34 cents worth of crust.
