  1. How to peel an egg?

    Hi Pseudo, I normally do this - try adding 2-3tspns of baking soda to the boiling water, boil them a little longer (~5-10min) more than you normally would. Fill a large bowl (I normally use the sink) with ice and water like an ice bath, and once ready dump the eggs immediately into the ice bath for 5-10min before peeling.

  3. Recommend PT/nutritionist for a beginner

    Cheers Pseudonym calves still there (looking a little softer), yeah been on contract working around the pacific islands for last few years, good to be back home tho. Have put on a decent bit of weight myself (not lean mass) too (too much turkey tails, palusamis, and breafruit), so looking to get back in shape for summer. She currently trains at the gym at Auckland Diocesan School as she works there and gets in free. oh yeah, am likeing this new website design too, much more simple navigation around threads

I am writing onbehalf of my partner who is a beginner and totally new to this, and any reccomendations/referrals around central auckland would be much appreciated. Thanks Cheers, fudoc

  6. good specials on protein

    In the larger quantities it is. Nutratech 1kg bag $33 per kilo. Evolv 1kg bag $33 per kilo 2 x nutratech 5lb bags, $124 special price. $27.31 per kilo. Evolv 5.5kg bag $140 per bag. $25.45 per kilo. Nutratech 10kg bag $280. $28 per kilo. Evolv 11kg bag. $24.90 per kilo. Hard to beat this for value. What I was looking for was the best price for a 1kg bag of unflavoured whey. I have enough flavoured stuff to last for a while, just looking for some natural stuff for smoothies etc. GA have a look at iherb.com, i've been getting 10lb unflavoured WPI (Now foods) from them. v.cheap shipping too compared to bb.com http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Mega-Pac ... 54-kg/8217

  15. Which oil??

    extra virgin is good only if you dont heat the oil to very high temperatures (ie,deep frying),otherwise it will loose most of its nutritional goodness and antioxidants. a quick saute is fine tho. i usually steam my veges,then dress w/ some extra virgin.
