How can I reduce my resting heart rate if I’m not allowed to do chronic cardio on the paleo diet? via /r/Paleo

I think my heart is very unhealthy despite being able to lift heavy weights my resting heart rate is like 80bpm every time I check. I read that a truly fit person should have this closer to 40-60.

I don’t do any cardio. I lift heavy weights 2-3 days a week, and walk a lot, and sprint once a month or so according to the Primal Blueprint. But how do I really train my heart and get my resting heart rate down? Apparently what I’m doing right now is not enough. Ordinarily I would do cardio to train my heart, but that’s not allowed on paleo.

Naked Salmon Burgers with Sriracha Mayo

Some burgers are just meant to be eaten without a bun. These salmon burgers are the perfect example. So much flavor in these burgers made with wild salmon, served on a bed of arugula with sliced avocado and a spicy sriracha mayo – a bun would only disguise it.

These burgers can be formed earlier in the day, or even the night before. Refrigerating them before cooking helps them hold together firm during cooking. Another tip is to put some of the salmon in the food processor or chopper. It creates “glue” that keeps everything together.

Last fall, Calphalon released a new line of Dishwasher Safe Nonstick Cookware and they sent me a few items of my choice to review. I’ve been using their nonstick cookware for years, as you may have seen in many of my photos so I replaced some of my favorites items with their new line, because I don’t know about you, but as much as I love cooking – washing dishes is not for me! I put this grill pan to the test with these salmon burgers and was very happy with how they cooked. And the good news, I am giving this nonstick grill pan away along with a wok, griddle and everyday pan! If you’re interested click this link for a chance to win!
