Fruit Salsa and Homemade Cinnamon Chips…Yum
A perfect summer snack for any occasion.
Ingredients: Fruit Salsa 
  • 16oz strawberries, diced
  • 2 kiwi, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of rasberries
  • 2 tbsp. sugar-free apricot preserves or jam
Cinnamon Chips
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup of coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a large plate, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Spray each tortilla front and back and carefully lay on the plate, one at a time. Move around lightly to get the cinnamon and sugar to adhere to the tortilla, then flip coating the other side.
  3. With a pizza cutter, cut cinnamon and sugar tortilla in half and then each half into four pieces, creating 8 slices per tortilla. Spread out on the baking sheet. Repeat with all tortillas and then place in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Pull baking sheet from oven and set aside to cool.
  4. Combine the fruit and the preserves in a medium sized bowl. Serve with cooled cinnamon chips and enjoy!
Pilates in the Pool
The Summer is upon us, which means exercising to look good in a bikini as well as jumping into the water to escape the heat. There is a possibility to kill two birds with one stone by bringing a Pilates workout into the pool. While maintaining the principles of the Pilates method: centering, control, precision, fluidity, breathing and concentration; practicing Pilates in the pool amps up any traditional Pilates exercise by utilizing aquatic resistance.
      Pilates and water share similarities in benefiting the body. They are both low impact, causing minimal stress on the joints in the body while also incorporating resistance to safely strengthen muscles. Water is 1,000 times denser than air and provides up to 12 times the resistance you would get from working out on land. As a result, a workout in the pool requires the body to work harder and expend more energy than working out on land. For people with joint and back problems aquatic workouts are ideal. A body submerged at rib cage depth weights about 75% less than it would on land, and approximately 90% less when submerged to the neck. The water acts as a giant cushion for the joints, protecting them from the stress and impact which otherwise the body would experience exercising out of the water.
    Gerri has been teaching Pool Pilates for over ten years to private clients, and has developed a comprehensive Pilates pool workout for all fitness levels. Please contact Gerri directly at Gerridalzell@aol.com for more information, or to schedule a session at your pool! Whether you are an athlete wanting to enhance performance by increasing your core strength, or you have arthritis, osteoporosis or weight challenges, pool Pilates can be a fun and effective way in improving strength.
