Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
Cous Cous - So good they had to name it twice. Couscous (pronounced Koose-Koose. Due to its quick preparation and health benefits, the popularity of this dish is quickly growing in other parts of the world as well. Including couscous in your diet provides several health benefits. A 1 cup serving of couscous provides 43 mcg of selenium, or 61% of the 70 mcg daily value. This is a trace mineral that the body needs in small quantities, acting as an antioxidant and protecting healthy cells from the mutating effects of toxins that change the DNA and structural composition, leading to disease and premature aging.
The potassium in couscous provides important functions, such as regulating blood pressure and the heartbeat. Potassium helps control fluid balance, an important factor in blood pressure regulation. It also assists with muscle contractions, and because the heart is a muscle, it requires potassium to prevent arrythmias, or irregularities of the heartbeat. A 1 cup serving of couscous provides 91mg of potassium, or 39% of the 3,500 mg the FDA recommends to get daily.

A More Comfortable Biking Option
If the seat on a stationary bike is uncomfortable, try a recumbent bike. The seat on a recumbent bike is more like a regular chair that is shaped to fit your back. Even if you are new to biking, recumbent cycling can be a desirable option.
