4 Simple, Effective Ways To Cope In Hot Weather During Pregnancy

4 Simple, Effective Ways To Cope In Hot Weather During Pregnancy

Pregnancy can come with a myriad of symptoms, including nausea and back pain. However, one that’s especially difficult during the summer is feeling that your body is warmer than usual. According to the NHS, this is due to hormonal changes and an increase in blood supply to the skin. It can also cause you to sweat more. This is already difficult enough, but during a heatwave, like the one that’s set to hit the UK later this month, staying cool can seem outright unmanageable. How to cope with hot weather and heatwaves during pregnancy Stay hydrated, especially if you’re prone to sweating According to the National Institute of Health, the current recommendation for water intake is drinking 8–10 glasses of water each day. Perhaps up it a little more if you need to or are prone to sweating. Your pee should be a pale yellow in shade, if it’s darker, you need to drink more water. Adjust your approach to exercise The National Childbirth Trust warned: “You might need to adjust your exercise plan while …

Gerry’s Hot Sub Deli, London: ‘Take it very seriously indeed’ – restaurant review | Food

Gerry’s Hot Sub Deli, 50 Exmouth Market, London EC1R 4QE. Sandwiches £8.25-£13.50, poutine £6.75-£10.70, dessert £4.25, wine £6.95 a glass, beer £3.95 a half pint Happiness is a handful of lunch and dressing running down your forearms. Certainly, anything that demands to be eaten alongside a roll of kitchen paper deserves to be taken seriously. By these criteria, which I’ve just invented, but now cleave to like holy scripture, the food at Gerry’s Hot Subs on London’s Exmouth Market deserves to be taken very seriously indeed. Lunch there is messy. Prepare to wipe yourself down afterwards or even nip home for a shower. But my, it’s good. The fact is, everybody can make themselves a sandwich, but you don’t want just anybody to make one for you. The frame is so very tight: some form of bread as vehicle for everything else. It demands a compulsive interest in detail combined with a profound understanding of what will make for a single, multi-textured mouthful. Followed by another and another. That person should be Andre Blais. He …

Hot heads: 13 unwritten rules for spice lovers | World of Flavour – With Encona

They say that variety is the spice of life but, as all spice lovers know, spice is the way to add variety to your life – or at least your meals. Another thing all serious chilli connoisseurs know is that being part of the club comes with certain dos and don’ts. Here are 13 rules that spice lovers will instantly understand. 1. A restaurant without hot sauce is a no-noChilli sauce should be a standard table-top condiment, and we won’t hear a word otherwise. As we can’t always rely on the chef to perfectly season our food, we at least need the option to add some heat at the table. 2. True connoisseurs carry a bottle of hot sauce with them at (almost) all timesIf this is you, you’re in good company. From Beyoncé to Naomi Campbell and, unexpectedly, Hillary Clinton, the “I got hot sauce in my bag” crew is elite. 3.

The Philadelphia Phillies Are Hot, Loose and Loving Life as One of the Best Teams in Baseball

The Philadelphia Phillies Are Hot, Loose and Loving Life as One of the Best Teams in Baseball

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Phillies are hot, that much is certain, with Bryce Harper and Zack Wheeler powering and pitching the team to the best record in baseball and a recent home winning streak that nearly matched the franchise record. Well, no team has been quite as alluring to the packed crowds at Citizens Bank Park as the Phillies. Just ask them. Brandon Marsh, the outfielder with the Rip Van Winkle whiskers, was mic’d up for an ESPN Sunday night game when he was relayed a fan question from social media by the broadcast booth: If you had to start a rock band, who would you take from the team and what’s the band name? Marsh rattled off catcher Garrett Stubbs, slugger Kyle Schwarber and outfielder Cristian Pache as his fellow band members, then as he hustled off the field after making a catch, blurted out the name that has since launched a blossoming business of the catchphrase T-shirts. Marsh said he has his own band shirt — which he has yet to reveal — …

Fine dining has embraced the hot dog

Fine dining has embraced the hot dog

One of my all-time favorite food memories is going to The Hot Grill (and its now-defunct sister restaurant, The Rascal House) with my dad and brother. My brother and I would often bring our own Mountain Dews from home — do not ask me why — scoot into one of the corner booths under the TV, and settle in as our dad went to the counter to order our food.  The Hot Grill, a real local stalwart burger-and-dog “joint” with fervent, voracious fans, specializes in deep-fried hot dogs “all the way,” with their traditional, secret recipe chili sauce, chopped onions and yellow mustard.  The people who work the counter have their own parlance, shouting over the din of the restaurant to the cooks in the back, frantically cooking up tons of food for the enormous amount of customers always packed into the eatery. My dad would then round the corner with tons of food stacked atop styrofoam platters and we’d all eat up, happily dipping and dunking, drowning in used napkins to clean our chili-sauce-streaked-fingers.  …

The TV breakups that broke us: From ‘Chenford’ to Fleabag and the Hot Priest

The TV breakups that broke us: From ‘Chenford’ to Fleabag and the Hot Priest

Whether you were Team Dean, Team Jess or Team Logan, it’s fair to say that Rory Gilmore had her fair share of heartwrenching breakups. But, it’s her season three split with resident bad boy Jess Mariano that hurts the most.  After embarking on a relationship, these two seemed golden. With a shared love of music and literature, Jess was Rory’s match in every way, but with a tendency to self-sabotage, he quickly ruined it all. Too afraid to tell her he was failing school, or that Luke had thrown him out, Jess skipped town without telling Rory.  In the end, their breakup happens over the phone, with Rory speaking down the line to a silent Jess. “I think I may have loved you. But, I just need to… let it go,” she tells him, before hanging up – it’s all too much! With their relationship over, Jess and Rory did establish a friendship, but one thing’s clear – Jess will always hold a candle for his lost love. Following the release of the four-part special, …

Warmest April on record puts Earth on 11-month hot streak

Earth’s simmering hot streak has stretched 11 months, with April breaking yet another global temperature record. It was warmer than any April on record, with an average surface temperature of 59.05 degrees, officials with the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service announced this week. It was about 0.25 of a degree warmer than the previous April high, in 2016. Aggressive and impactful reporting on climate change, the environment, health and science. April was 2.84 degrees warmer than the estimated average for the month from 1850 to 1900, the designated pre-industrial reference period against which current warming is measured. International climate officials have pledged to limit planetary warming to 2.7 degrees (1.5 degrees Celsius) in order to prevent the worst effects of climate change, including worsening drought and wildfires, rising sea levels and extreme heat. Some of the recent run of heat can be attributed to El Niño, a climate pattern in the tropical Pacific that influences temperature and weather conditions around the world, experts said. But El Niño has been waning, and global warming fueled …
