Have a Fun Day!

Normal class structure will not be in effect today.  Coaches will still be around to help, but we want you to get in, get your work done and get outside!  The weather is supposed to be beautiful today and we encourage everyone to take advantage!  Some people will be biking down to the South Bay, others playing volleyball, and most will be grilling out and enjoying a few daytime cocktails!

Below is a recipe for my preferred summertime drink, along with a few other comments from Robb Wolf on the topic of booze.  Enjoy your day responsibly and feel free to post what you’ll be up to today!  Happy 4th of July everybody!

The Infamous NorCal Margarita!
2 shots of tequila
Juice of 1 lime (the whole damn thing)
Splash of soda water
Over Ice
Salted Rim optional

Drink one or two of these on an empty stomach early in your evening.  Wrap up the night with some protein and fat, and you are set….There is also some chemistry behind the recommendations.  The lime juice blunts insulin release and the carbon dioxide bubbles in the soda water act as what’s called a “nonpolar solvent.”  This actually extracts the alcohol from the drink and delivers it to your system faster…

…Beer is generally loaded with gluten.  If you can find a gluten-free variety, give it a shot, but keep in mind it does have significant sugar content…If you go for wine, opt for dry varieties, as they have less sugar
