Wellness Tip
Do Not Workout in the Smog
Exercising outdoors when air quality is poor can be hard on your lungs and heart. Watch the air quality reports and avoid outdoor exercise when it's hazy. Instead, opt for indoor gyms, fitness centers or malls that properly maintain air temperature and air quality.

Recipe
Zucchini and Scallions Fritters
Category: Breakfast
Description: There is a new fan favorite in my house for the best way to put the summer zucchini surplus to use, and it comes in the form of zucchini fritters. Best of all, you only need five ingredients and 25 minutes to go from everyday veggie to all-star appetizer, side dish or snack.
The setup is simple: Grated zucchini joins forces with sliced scallions, flour and eggs. Patties are formed and pan-fried then served hot alongside a refreshing dollop of sour cream. These fritters-slash-pancakes (inspired by their culinary cousin, Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes) make any topping or dunkable sauce fair game, from roasted garlic aioli to tahini yogurt dip. But no matter how you stack ’em, top ’em, slice ’em or serve ’em, one thing is certain: Just a taste isn’t enough when it comes to hot and crispy zucchini fritters.
