Look Like a Pro

Being prepared is the key to looking like a pro around the grill. Even if you've run out of your favourite brand of BBQ auce, you probably have the base ingredients in your fridge to make a sauce that's perfect for any grilling.

All You Need

  • 1 1/4 cups ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 4 drops hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

All You Do

  • Combine in a bowl and whisk for 30 seconds.
  • Apply to the meat, or vegetables you're grilling.

Stretch it Out

A lot of people have to sit for long periods of time and this can lead to a tight lower back. One stretch that you can do each day when you sit down, or anytime you feel like, is the sit stretch, and it's done like this:

  1. Sit at the edge of your seat, feet flat, shoulder-width apart.

  2. First cross one foot over and rest the ankle on the opposite knee.

  3. With arms in a resting position lean forward and look at the floor.

  4. Hold that and breathe, for about 60 seconds. You should feel a stretch in your glute, or butt.

  5. Switch legs and repeat

Performing this sit stretch is easy to do at your desk, and it will help reduce back tightness and maintain flexibility.

What You Need

  • 6 ice cubes

Pour the sparkling lemonade into your blender, add the other ingredients and blend on high for 30 seconds.

Pour into sugar-rimmed glasses and impress the toughest critics of bubbly summer drinks.
