Recharge With a Post-Workout Morning Dip in the Ocean

Recharge With a Post-Workout Morning Dip in the Ocean

I know I’ve said this before but I can not express enough just how good the ocean is for you! Here is why…

Recharge With a Post Workout Morning Dip in the Ocean  |  VitaminBridget.com #fitness #sunshine #beach #cali #california #exercise #inspiration #happy #cowgirl Did you know finishing your workout with a dip in the ocean can reduce inflammation in the body if the water is cold? Are you feeling tight and sore after your morning jog on the sand or beach workout sesh? Jump in!!! You will feel better instantly and your body will thank you.

Besides reducing aches and pains, the salt water can help clear breakouts or acne. It will dry it up faster than most over the counter acne medicines. Why not naturally exfoliate your body while you’re at it? After your workout, jump in the ocean, then run back to the sand and roll around in it so from your neck down until you are completely covered, then go jump back in and with the salt water rinse it off in a circular motion. Living at the beach we call this method “corn dogging”. I don’t know why, just is, and it works. Then there is your hair. People pay high dollar to buy salt water because of the texture it leaves in your hair. After your post-workout dip, wear a shower cap when you shower so you keep the salt water in, and rock beach waves all day long. So now you have reduced muscle inflammation, got a head start on clearing up that horrible blemish, got a full body exfoliation treatment, and awesome hair all for free!  All natural! I say you can’t go wrong! Don’t forget to thank your “beach salon”  and pick up a piece of trash if you see one.

Recipe:  Beer Can BBQ Chicken

Recipe: Beer Can BBQ Chicken

Ingredients:

olive oil

1 thawed whole chicken

garlic powder

Lawrys seasoned salt

Red red pepper flakes

1 can of beer (I prefer coors light)

How To:

Take out all the inside of your thawed chicken , rinse with water and blot with a paper towel. Place the chicken on a big plate and massage olive oil all over it. Sprinkle onion powder of the whole bird. Follow with Lawry’s seasoning and then the red pepper flakes. Massage the whole bird to mix the seasoning up and rub it in the outer layer of the skin. HEre comes the fun part Recipe:  Beer Can BBQ Chicken  |  VitaminBridget.com #fitness #sunshine #beach #cali #california #exercise #inspiration #happy #cowgirl … grab you beer and drink half of it. Don’t feel like drinking?, just pour half of it out. Place your bird on top of the beer can. Make sure the beer can is directly in side the chicken or it will fall over. Your chicken should be in the sitting position.you can push the drumsticks out a little to create more balance. Let the bird sit while you heat the grill. Heat the grill to 300-350. Once the grill is ready, go back to your chicken and layer it lightly with the same 3 seasonings you did before.  Place the chicken on the grill. It should be sitting up . Again you may need to adjust the drumsticks for balance on you grill. Once your bird is sturdy, close the lid and let cook for 1 1/2- 2  hrs or until desired crispiness. Take off the grill and let sit for a long 5-10 minutes before taking the chicken off the beer can. *Caution , it will be hot. After Beer can in removed, cut and serve!!!

Beer can chicken is like no other chicken. It is so delicious, moist on the inside , while crispy on the outside!!!  The secret of the moistness is it cooks from the inside out by steaming it with the beer. The flavor is insane and it can give you meals for days! Added bonus,whole chickens are cheap! I find them for 99cents and stock up and my fridge. This is one of my favorite recipes to do with a whole chicken. I learned this method growing up in Texas. Could it get any more simple too! A beer and a bird! :) Enjoy!!! Ask Questions! Let me know how it turns out!!! Send pics!

Happy Eating Yall!
