Grilling on Vacation

Weber 1481001With summer being about halfway over we figured it was time to talk about one of the most important tools of summer: Grills.  Not only are these tools a huge part of summer, but they’re a huge part of vacation.  Nothing beats the smell of your favorite foods being grilled while you’re sipping on your drink of choice during vacation.    Since we’re focused on vacation and summer, we though it’d be a good idea to focus on a quality grill, nothing cheap.  For that reason we’re going to take a look at our favorite charcoal grill, the weber 1481001.  Unlike most charcoal grills, starting this baby is cake – it has a electric/gas ignition system – so you can load it up with charcoal and walk away.  Not only that, but has a storage tank for your charcoal bags so you can keep them close by and dry.  If you find that you’re often grilling for more then just a couple people, no problem – this grill features a large capacity 22.5″ grill top – plenty of room for all your summer favorites.  To make all that space even better, the weber 1481001 was designed with even cooking in mind, so you’ll get good and even heat distribution for even cooking.  If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s having to constantly rotate food to try and get it to cook evenly.


Getting in Shape for Vacation

Going on vacation is suppose to be a time of happiness and joy, but sometimes the thought of putting on a bathing suit can bring just the opposite.  The least I can is tell you you’re not alone, this is a common problem for a lot of people – even though most need not worry!  Unfortunately if you’re not happy with how you look there isn’t a simple solution, there are short cuts though!  Weight loss supplements are now more effective then ever and can make a big difference at helping you get the body you want.  One of the best is called Synedrex by Metabolic Nutrition.  Check out the link to learn more about it and see if it’s right for you.  As always, exercise and proper diet are the best things you can do, but a product like Synedrex can help you get the focus and energy you need.  I would also suggest you start a couple months before vacation, or at least a month –  though I know it can be hard to think that far in advance in today’s busy world!
