Life is already busy, messy, and filled with unexpected surprises. So why contribute to the hecticness by making health harder than it has to be?
Hack your way to better health with these 13 clever fitness and kitchen tricks that will save you time, money, and a headache.
If you struggle drinking enough water throughout the day, a permanent marker and a clear water bottlemight just be the cute, but effective, health hack you need. Divide the bottle into 200 ml intervals that coordinate with every hour in the day. If you stay on track, you’ll reach the magic eight glasses by dinnertime!
2. Never eat a bad egg again.
You’re not a bad egg; we think you’re great! But eating a bad egg? Not so great. To test the freshness of those last few guys hanging around in the carton, drop ‘em in a bowl of water. Fresh eggs will sink, eggs perfect for hard-boiling will sink on their side, and bad eggs will float.
3. Save wilting herbs with an ice cube tray.
When your fresh herbs are on the way out (aka starting to turn brown or are wilting), don’t toss them! Instead, put chopped herbs in ice cube trays, fill with olive oil, and freeze. Now you’ll always have cubes ready for sautéing veggies and meat or tossing in sauces!
4. Turn your favorite TV show into a unique workout.
We’re all guilty of it. We say there is not enough time in the day to the hit gym, but yet we find time to watch three plus hours of TV every night. How about putting that TV to good use? Whether you prefer Scandal, Orange Is The New Black, or Modern Family (or 40 other shows) there is a “watch and work” workout for you!
