Best Bodybuilding Foods : utime Fitness

October 24, 2017

 

Fitness takes both time and hard work to achieve, in addition to frequent workouts at utime Fitness Studios, a well-designed food and supplement programme is a must for serious muscle builders! utime Fitness boasts “The Friendliest Gym Membership in Town” with doors open 24/7 and No Contracts- ever!

Designing a diet plan that will help you reach the physique of your dreams is a complicated process, that should be developed under the fundamental principles of health and fitness. utime Fitness carries many delicious, nutrient-packed supplements that can help you stay on track in this fast-paced city, but there are a few must-have foods that are on every true bodybuilder’s shopping list.

 

Here are the Top Bodybuilding Foods to Include in Your Diet:

 

Egg Whites

It is practically impossible to find a bodybuilder that does not have egg whites included in their daily diet. This is perhaps the best source of protein, containing 21 grams of protein and only 99 calories. Egg whites also contain low carbohydrates and are a source of vitamins and minerals. Keep your eggs refrigerated; the quality of the eggs will decline when they are not refrigerated.

 

Cold Water Fish, such as salmon, tuna, trout, and sardines

Cold water fish is a very good source of protein and healthy fats. Since hard-core bodybuilder often eats a very low-fat diet the essential omega-3 fatty acids these fish provide are especially important to support the muscle-building process. Of course, you want to stay away from saturated and trans fats.

 

Chicken Breast

Many gym rats include lean chicken breast in their regular diet. This makes perfect sense as chicken breast is low-fat but still incredibly high in protein.

Bananas, Oatmeal and Sweet Potato

Muscle needs more than just protein though, you also need a good source of slow-burning carbohydrates to fuel and sustain your muscles.  Slow-acting, complex carbohydrates are highly recommended to be part of your pre-workout snack. Bananas, Oatmeal and Sweet Potatoes are good examples of slow-acting, complex carbohydrates that ensure you will have the energy to complete your daily exercise routine.

 

Our diet is an essential part of a well-balanced bodybuilding program. We can exercise all day, but if the body is not receiving the right nutrients, in the right amounts, then it can seem like an impossible uphill battle for us to achieve our fitness goals.

Lucky Dawgs Brewing: Build Your Beer Knowledge

October 24, 2017

Beer tastes great. At Lucky Dawgs Brewing, we know our beer, and the exciting thing about beer (beyond drinking it) is that there is so much to enjoy about it!  Lucky Dawgs Brewing is a brewery located in the heart of Hong Kong, with strong US roots. Lucky Dawg carries brews such as “White Guy Wheat Ale” that has bold aromas of ginger and lemongrass, mingled with sweet yeast generated phenolics and “Espresso Assassin Porter” which is a deliciously dark coffee beer that will delight your taste buds. (Click here to see more crafted beer flavours)

 

And of course, it all starts and ends with flavor, but beer lovers have extended their interests to learning about the people who create it, brewing history, and beer festivals. Beers are analyzed and debated on, celebrated with, we collect Beer artwork and t-shirts.

 

Here are a few tips on how to sound like a beer expert:

What is Beer?

A beer is any fermented drink that has been derived from grains. The two most common beer families are lagers and ales, distinguished by the type of yeast and the temperature of fermentation. Lagers are fermented at cooler temperatures by bottom fermenting yeast and are conditioned aka “lagered” somewhere cool for a number of weeks before they are ready to drink. Ales are fermented at warmer temperature by top-fermenting yeast strains and are ready to drink much sooner.

 

How do I taste and analyze Beer like an expert?

Simple: Sniff, stare, sip, savor, swallow.

 

  • Sniff: The aroma of the beer is enough to tell you whether you are having a good beer or not. What you’re looking for are the dominant aromas of the beer. Is it sweet, sour, roasty, earthy, herbal, flowery, citrus or any one of a number of other aromas?

 

  • Stare: Once you are pleased with the aroma, look at the appearance of the beer. Most beers are filtered and should be clear, not cloudy.  What color is the beer? Does the beer have a nice foamy head and good head retention? These are a few things to note.

 

  • Sip: What do you taste? Is the main flavor what you sniffed in the first step (sweet, sour, roasty, earthy, herbal, flowery, citrus, etc)  How do the flavors play off each other?  And how is the mouth-feel? Beer can range from thin and watery to full and chewy.

 

In order to become a beer expert, you will have to know beer. And that means tasting and trying as many as possible! (A hard task, we know 😉 ) Be sure to try one of our new crowlers!

These users comprise of all kinds of people, including business owners and customers, on every platform.

Have a Social Media Strategy in Place

Before you begin designing content and posting to social media platforms it’s important to create a plan. Think about your business’s  key messages, goals, and objectives. Write (or type) them out. Then think about the best way to communicate them– what will be your TOV (Tone of Voice)? What times of day and how often will you post? What kind of content is best (photos, blog posts, videos. infographics etc)? What platforms will you use? A proper social media strategies should cover all these details plus more. Be sure your social media activity reflects your business values.

Form a Social Media Team

Creating content, posting that content and interacting with your followers takes time.  Find a team or hire a person who specializes in social media content creation and interaction. Audience engagement is what will help you get a lot of new followers.

 

Content, Content, Content

Content should be an essential part of your social marketing plan. Map out who will be in charge of what content. For example, who will be taking and editing photo’s, who will be writing blog posts, creating videos etc. How often will you post these? Who will insert the postings onto social media, whether you are posting live or scheduling posts ahead of time?

 

Whether you are putting out short how-to videos or hosting a live Twitter chat with a dedicated hashtag, the objective should always be to increase brand awareness among your B2B audience. Be prepared that a B2B audience may not be as active on social media as a B2C audience, but if your business’s content is good and consistent your audience will find you, remember you, and seek to work with you.

Taste of Scan Grilled Pork and Pineapple Tacos for Everyone!

October 24, 2017

 

Pork and pineapple go hand in hand, which is why these Grilled Pork and Pineapple Tacos promise to be your next taco night hit!  When you prepare Taste of Scan’s incredible flower-fed, Omega-3 pork, you’ll enjoy clean, fresh flavour along with the extra benefit of eating healthier. This Grilled Pork and Pineapple Taco recipe is full of delicious summer flavours– pork and pineapple are a long-time favorite flavor combo for a reason!

 

Add some red onion, sweetened by the heat of the grill, and these grilled pork and pineapple tacos are perfection. We dressed the tacos very simply with fresh tomatoes and cilantro, plus a squeeze of fresh lime. You can add guacamole or sour cream to taste if you’d like, but it’s not necessary.

Grilled Pork and Pineapple Taco Recipe

In this recipe we used Taste of Scan Pork Loin, found at ParknShop outlets throughout Hong Kong.

 

  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • big pinch ground cloves
  • 1 small to medium fresh pineapple,  cut into thin vertical spears
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced into 3 to 4 rings (leaving the rings connected)
  • 12 to 16 medium tortillas
  • small tomatoes, sliced in half
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • fresh lime wedges

 

In a small bowl, whisk together all spices (first nine ingredients).  Brush your sliced pork loin with oil then sprinkle spice mixture evenly onto both sides of each piece of pork, using all of the spice mixture.

Place pineapple spears and onion slices on a separate pan. Brush both sides of the onion slices very lightly with olive oil and season with black pepper and salt.

Heat grill to medium-high heat, making sure the grates are clean and then oiled. (To oil the grates, add some oil to a small bowl. Then fold a paper towel and dip it into the oil until the paper towel is drenched. Using tongs, run the paper towel over the grates repeating until thoroughly oiled.)

First grill the tortillas, laying them right on the hot grates for a few seconds, then flip and grill the second side. Remove from grill.

Check to make sure your grill is still well-oiled, then place your pineapple spears onto the hot grates. Grill for 1 to 3 minutes per side, or until charred to your liking. Use tongs for quick flipping. Remove pineapple from grill and once they have cooled, chop spears into 1.5cm chunks.

Check to make sure your grill is still well-oiled, then place your onion slices onto the hot grates. Grill for 1 to 3 minutes per side, or until charred to your liking. Use tongs for quick flipping. Remove onion slices from grill and once they have cooled, chop into 1.5cm chunks.

Oil grates again, then place your pork on the grill for about 2 minutes on each side, until the internal temperature reaches 65 degrees Celsius (approx 145 degrees Fahrenheit) followed by a 3-minute rest time.  Then place pork on a cutting board and slice each piece into thin strips. This method seasons and grills more overall surface area of the pork, adding an extra punch of flavor and texture.

For taco assembly, offer tortillas, Taste of Scan pork, pineapple, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and lime wedges to make tacos as you please.

Taste of Scan’s delicious, juicy and tender flower-fed pork has an amazing flavour and texture, as well as being easier to cook with, so it is no surprise that many top Hong Kong restaurants have chosen our natural, premium pork for their menus.

Hong Kong’s Best Dim Sum: How to Yum Cha Like a Cantonese

October 24, 2017

I am The Ultimate Kaiser, a world traveler sharing my gastronomic and  travel experiences one photo at a time. Be sure to follow The Ultimate Kaiser on Instagram for amazing photo’s from around the world.

 

In the fabulous Dim Sum restaurants of Hong Kong, a collection of aromatic dumplings or deep-fried delights are served in bamboo-made containers and enjoyed with hot tea. Whether you call it dim sum, which means “to touch the heart”, or yum cha, which means “to drink tea”, this tasty cuisine is a staple in Hong Kong, and for good reason. Dim Sum restaurants are always filled to the brim and may look chaotic to people who have not had the experience before. With the below tips, you can enjoy your food hassle-free.

Wait Patiently in Queue

As with everything else, waiting in line is a necessary evil at many dim sum establishments in Hong Kong. But, rest assured, good dim sum is well worth the wait. Alternatively, you can order as a takeaway package and enjoy the food in the wonderful local parks or on a city bench. But for the inexperienced, eating inside the dim sum establishment is part of the experience that I urge you to try, at least once.

 

Follow the Rules

Traditionally dim sum is served on trolleys that weave between tables. You then select your dish and the wait staff circle or stamp a ticket with your order. This is still the norm in many places, especially overseas but more modern dim sum places in Hong Kong have now adopted a ticketing system. For this system you will fill out a card, or ticket, ahead of time with the items you want. Most restaurants will have cards in English, but if they don’t try something random. You might find a new favourite food! At very least, it will be an experience to remember.

 

Note that you may find yourself given a large bowl of tea before your meal. This is for you to wash your dishes in, the hot tea kills any bacteria. These days most establishments do wash their dishes, but this cleansing ritual is still continued.

 

Drink Tea Like a Hong Kong Native

As explained above, Yum Cha means drinking tea; therefore, you should prepare yourself to drink tea with other people around you. Besides the tea being delicious, it also helps in digestion of deep fried foods. Before serving yourself a cup of tea, it is customary in Hong Kong that you serve others first as an indication of love and unity. Tapping fingers on the table as the waiter serves the tea is a sign of saying thank you; therefore, do it when you see others doing it.

 

Now, go and enjoy the delicious food and tea! Be sure to take photos and tag  #TheUltimateKaiser on Instagram and Facebook, I’d love to see your experience!
