Tips for a New You in 2018
Once again, we've completed a revolution around our sun. Once again, this celestial occurrence has instilled in you a yearning for self-improvement. Will it run its course as in years past and fizzle out within a month? Appliances Connection wants you to shout with unhesitant enthusiasm, "No!" We want to help strengthen your resolve so you can start afresh and live a new and improved lifestyle. We'll do everything but hold your hand in giving you access to the means and tools to be a better you. Have a taste of what Appliances Connection can do for you as we step together into 2018.
A healthy you starts with a healthy diet. It may seem like the more convenient option to just hit up a fast food joint for a meal. However, a constant intake of foods high in trans-fats and simple carbohydrates is a long-term equation for obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and so many other health defects. For cumulatively the same amount of money and just a little bit more effort, you can prepare better tasting and much more wholesome meals at home. Furthermore, studies have shown that households that have meals together around a proper dinner table are generally happier. So here are couple of recipes that'll jump start your physical and mental health.
Let's start you off with something light and easy. This marinated vegetable dish will impress as an appetizer for guests. It also keeps for up to a week, so you can grab it as a savory, enjoyable snack at any time. Needs only about 15 minutes of active prep time and makes up to 6 servings.
|1 1/3 cups||Asparagus pieces, trimmed (1-2 inches in length)|
|1 1/3 cups||Cremini mushrooms, halved|
|1 1/3 cups||Cauliflower florets, small|
|1/4 cup||Arugula, chopped|
|1/4 cup||Extra-virgin olive oil|
|3 Tbsp||Red-wine vinegar|

|1 large clove||Garlic, minced|
|1/4 tsp||Ground pepper|
Step 1 - Cook asparagus, mushroom, and cauliflower in a small pot of boiling water until al dente (30 seconds - 1 minute).

Step 3 - Drain, pat dry, and transfer the vegetables to a medium bowl.

Bettering yourself also means being conscious of the environment around you. That's why you'll want to prepare your wholesome meals with the Electrolux induction cooktop and corresponding wall oven. Long before enforced regulations or positive public opinion on green awareness, Electrolux has been committed to manufacturing the most efficient and environmentally friendly appliances. In the United States Energy Star outlines the benchmarks in appliance efficiency. Electrolux has always striven to exceed those standards. That is why they've been named Energy Star Partner of the Year on multiple occasions.
Induction cooking is the most efficient way to prepare food due to the miniscule 10% heat loss from induction element to cooking vessel. Electrolux was right to hitch its environmentally conscious star to induction with this 30" cooktop. It's also as functional as it is green. The sensors activating the induction field adjust to the exact size of the pot or pan. Since heat is generated directly in the cookware, the surrounding cooktop will always stay cooler to the touch, making it extremely safe and so much easier to clean. You'll be amazed at its responsiveness. In 90 seconds, you can have water boiling and in a small fraction of that, get it to a gentle simmer. After using this Electrolux induction cooktop, you'll wonder why anyone has anything else in their kitchen.
Beautifully complementing the cooktop in both form and function is the equally capable Elecrolux wall oven. An expansive interior space allows you to cook delicious meals of any size. Not just offering space, all your food is lovingly enveloped by exclusive Perfect Taste Advance Convection. It uses two convection fans to evenly control heat for perfect baking and roasting every single time. The oven's No Preheat feature takes into account exactly the time and temperature dishes require throughout the cooking process. It adjusts accordingly throughout the cooking process so that you don't need to wait around for the oven to warm up before beginning to cook. It wouldn't be an Electrolux appliance if it didn't keep you on the cutting edge of kitchen methodology. A technique tested in professional kitchens, air sous vide uses precisely controlled temperature in a vacuum-sealed pouch so that food is cooked low and slow, locking in the flavor and aroma of your favorite dishes. Between cooking sumptuous meals, you can use the oven's Fresh Steam Clean mode for a light 20-minute self-cleaning cycle that will get your oven ready for the next round without using harsh chemicals.
Another part of finding the new you is a new commitment to getting in shape. Though you have the utmost desire, joining a gym may be a daunting prospect in terms of expense and self-consciousness. Appliances Connection has a plethora of options for you to attain peak fitness at negligible expense in the comfort of your own home. Here are just a couple of our offerings in the way of health and fitness equipment.
Your heart is literally the engine that keeps your body moving. Its health and maintenance are paramount for a long and productive life. That's the focus of this Kettler elliptical cross trainer. The Poly-V Drive belt and hefty 30.5 lb flywheel yield smooth and virtually silent operation. Your workout can be as low impact as you'd like when you merely want to concentrate on cardio. Telemetric hand grips continuously measure your heart rate since a steady elevated pulse makes for the most productive workout. Further metrics such as distance, time, speed, and energy consumption are monitored and presented on a prominent, center-mounted LCD computer display so you can keep track of your progress. As you reach your goals, it keeps you motivated to go even further. Once you're ready to branch out into strength training, you can use the adjustable intensity and resistance levels to work your arms, legs, and glutes. You'll be looking and feeling great in no time!
Even in the depths of frigid winter cold, there's no reason you can't get ready for swimsuit season which is right around the corner. The Body Solid Pro-Style Ab Board is a simple and no-nonsense solution to tucking in that tummy. Start off easy with a 0-degree elevation. The 40" x 12" DuraFirm back pad gives you much better support than if you were just doing sit-ups on the floor. As you progress, you'll be able to adjust the telescoping steel beam to its 12 different positions for an elevation of up to 45 degrees. Even at the most extreme supine positions, the oversized 8" foam leg and shin rollers provide maximum comfort and stability and ensures easy entry and exit. The whole setup makes sure you have exceptional back and head support to maintain proper body alignment. You'll be able to effectively isolate your entire abdominal region for a workout that suits your intensity level. By the time spring rolls around, you'll have the rock-hard six-pack and defined obliques you always wanted.
