Strongwomen.com: A Website Dedicated To Developing Strong Women Inside and Out

I found this website called Strongwomen at www.strongwomen.comwhere the message of its home page is...

"StrongWomen envisions a worldwide community of women who are fit, strong, and healthy; in turn, these empowered women will become positive agents of change for their families, communities, and beyond."

It does this via newsletters, message boards, and various ways to connect with a group of female doctors representing various fields of medicine. It even has receipes that look just plain good. For example, there's Chunky Vegetable Paella , a dish I can -- and will try -- and I'm a guy! It goes like this:

Chunky Vegetable Paella:

This paella recipe will please vegetarians and meat-eaters alike! It can be served as a vegetarian main course with a mixed green salad and crusty bread. Or serve as a side dish with grilled, skewered shrimp or chicken. Serves 6.

(For more deliciously nutritious recipes, be sure to go to Recipes.)


8-10 strands Saffron

1 medium eggplant, cut into ¾ inch chunks

1 tsp. salt

6 T. olive oil

1 large onion, sliced

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 medium yellow pepper, sliced in 1" pieces

1 medium red pepper, sliced in 1" pieces

2 tsp. paprika

1 ¼ c. Arborio rice

3 ½ c. chicken or vegetable stock

1 lb. tomatoes, fresh, chopped

pinch ground black pepper

6 oz. mushrooms, fresh, cut into chunks

15 oz. garbanzo beans (chickpeas), with liquid

Steep saffron in 3 T. hot water. Sprinkle eggplant with salt, leave to drain in colander for 30 minutes, then rinse and dry

In a large pan, heat olive oil and sauté garlic, onions, peppers and eggplant for about 5 minutes. Add paprika and stir.

Mix in rice then add stock, tomatoes, saffron and black pepper. Bring to a boil; simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in mushrooms and garbanzo beans. Simmer 15 minutes more until liquid is absorbed. Stir as needed.

But beyond the food, there are sections on books and advice, and a place where you can sign up to establish a Strongwoman program in your area.

What is the Strongwoman Program? Well, the website explains that potential leaders are "trained on the exercise program itself as well as how to effectively instruct and assist participants in learning the exercises. Additionally, the workshop will cover all topics found in the Toolkit such as screening, safety, and effective leadership. Program leaders will be given guidance on how to schedule their programs, discuss space and equipment needs, and strategize about issues such as transportation and gaining local support and funding. Following the workshop, sites/program leaders will then be required to initiate at least one program in their community."

Check it out. I especially recommend FBBs to do this program as local leaders as its seems to be a perfect way to use personal training talents to help others and gain more clients!
