Staying Cool and Healthy in the Summer Heat

Staying Cool and Healthy in the Summer Heat

Summer is on its way and the weather is getting hotter. Just imagining the scorching heat makes it easy to lose your appetite and energy. With the growing interest in healthy lifestyles, cooling down with high calories such as ice cream and lemonade may not be as appealing as it used to be. So what can be done to beat the summer heat?

Cool off and stay healthy with your own homemade juice and sorbet! Delicious and nutritious, not only will it help cool you down, but by being able to control what you put into your juice and sorbet, you'll be able to stay healthy and in shape during the hot summer.

Due to consumer's interest in healthy lifestyles, quality juicers that allow users to consume vital nutrients have appeared on the market. Korea has also produced quality juicers with unique characteristics that have gained popularity among consumers around the world.

Here, we would like to introduce three internationally popular juicers with the unique functions and characteristics!

Hurom, one of Korea's popular juicer, is well known for its Hurom Slow Juicer. Not only popular in Korea, Hurom has gained popularity in the US, Europe and 50 other countries. It was even awarded gold in 2010 at the world's top 3 international invention fairs, the Swiss Geneva, US Pittsburgh and German Nuremberg. Hurom was also selected as a World-Class Korean Product for 3 consecutive years, 2010, 2011 and 2012. So what makes Hurom Slow Juicer so popular?

Unlike the other traditional juicers, the Hurom Slow Juicer utilizes its patented "Slow Squeezing System (SSS)". Instead of grinding the ingredients within the juicer, the "SSS" lowers the temperature and slowly squeezes the ingredients which help preserve the nutrition and original taste of the ingredients. The result is a much higher quality juice, in taste and in nutritional value.

Hurom Slow Juicer's Condenser Reducer Motor is another characteristic that sets it apart from other juicers. While traditional juicers grind their ingredients at a high speed, the Condenser Reducer Motor ensures that Hurom will function more quietly and with less vibration. Also, Hurom Slow Juicer comes with a self-cleaning function, which is a big plus when it comes to choosing a juicer.

Hurom Slow Juicer can be used to create a variety of drinks and sorbets, such as fruit juices, vegetable juices, smoothies and almond or soy milk. To help you get started, here is Hurom's recipe for a natural fruit sorbet to help you cool off in the hot summer.

Natural Fruit Sorbet

A sorbet is made by freezing sweetened fruit juice. No additional ingredients are necessary to create the natural and tangy dessert.

BUSAN AND ULJIN COUNTY, North Gyeongsang - As summer vacation approaches, many are busy looking for ways to escape the heat for at least a few days. For those who enjoy exciting activities, Korea"s southern coastal regions provide many different opportunities to try water sports. Instead of just sitting on a yacht, you can actually learn how to sail.

So if just lying on the beach all day isn"t your cup of tea, read on to find out how to have an adventure this summer.Learn to work the windWindsurfing is readily available at coastal areas in Korea, including Busan. One would think it"s hard to stay balanced on the board, especially on the first try. However, the design of the windsurfing board, different from a regular surfboard, makes it easy to stand up on the water. Once you find your balance, then it"s time to catch the wind. Even first-timers can pick up the skill on the first day of training.An instructor accompanies trainees in the shallow waters near the beach, and then leads the group out into deeper water later for unhindered sailing experience, away from the crowd of novice sailors, surfers and swimmers near the beach. After about three or four hours of working the sail, you might be exhausted. Then you can switch to a kayak to spend some more time relaxing in the water.If you want to get a good picture of yourself trying out a new sport, try windsurfing at Gwangalli Beach. If your friend stands on the beach with a camera, you can get a photo of yourself on the windsurfing board in front of the Gwanga Bridge, the second-longest bridge in Korea. Gwangalli Ocean Leports Center, located near the beach, offers training classes for windsurfing, waterskiing and wakeboarding. A one-day training session is 70,000 won ($61.75) including gear rental, and just renting the suit and the windsurfing board costs 40,000 won. You can get a 20 percent discount if you have more than 20 people in your group. For more information, call (051) 755-0707. Enjoy the sea with easeIf you want a thrilling experience but doubt your own skills, have a go at water rides. The recently introduced jet boats are rising in popularity in Korea, especially after being featured on TV entertainment shows.

Uljin County offers a variety of water sports including windsurfing, left, and scuba diving, right. Beginner divers can take a training course at Uljin Ocean Leports Center, which has a five-meter-deep pool (16-meter-deep). The Bay 101 in Busan offers rides on a jet boat, center, which can perform 360-degree spins in the water. Provided by Uljin County Office, The Bay 101, Jeon Eun-seon

After cruising around for awhile, the driver will take you along Haeundae Beach, where you"ll make all the beachgoers jealous with your flashy ride. The driver will throw in some 360-degree spins to add to the excitement.A jet boat ride costs 48,000 won. For more fun, you can also try riding on a banana boat or a peanut boat, which are inflatable rafts pulled by a speedboat. For more information, go to www.blue-marine.co.kr.After dark, there are sill more ways to relax on the water by taking a yacht trip or an overnight cruise.

For more information about the sunset yacht ride, go to www.diamondbay.co.kr, and for the overnight cruise, go to www.panstar.co.kr. For more about the discounts go to www.bto.or.kr. Explore beneath the wavesAfter spending time at the beach or on the water, you may start to be curious about what"s below the surface. It"s time to don a wet suit and oxygen tank and dive beneath the waves. Korea may not be as well-known for scuba diving compared to tropical countries that have warm waters year-round. However, as long as you have the proper equipment to keep yourself warm, you can easily experience this sport and venture into the deep. The Uljin Ocean Leports Center has Korea"s largest training center for water sports. It features a pool that is 5 meters (16 feet) deep in which beginning divers can train before heading out to sea. The center offers a variety of diving programs including ones that offer just a one-time diving experience, and others for those who are pursuing diving certificates. A one-time diving session in the indoor pool only costs 60,000 won, and the one that includes an ocean diving experience costs 120,000 won. A training program to obtain an open-water certificate, the basic license needed for ocean diving, takes five days to complete. It costs 400,000 won. As many programs require multiple days of training, the center also offers lodging service. If you"re a more experienced diver who already has a certification and wants to go directly to the ocean without additional training, you can contact local dive shops to plan a diving session. Moor Haejeo is one of the dive shops that arranges a boat trip out to sea and rental for all necessary gear. The water temperature is slowly going up as the weather gets hotter, but it generally stays below 20 degrees Celsius. A diver from Moor Haejeo who assisted this reporter in the water on Tuesday said the water temperature at 15 meters deep was around 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit), higher than he expected. Still, he recommended wearing a heat vest inside even the thickest 5-millimeter suit.

The visibility underwater was also decent, so this reporter could see lots of sea urchins in the spaces between big rocks, abalones, clusters of flowy seaweed and schools of colorful fish. The dive instructor pointed out various interesting things to see. And since he wears a recording device while leading a group dive, divers can come back to land and replay the video to look again at the marine creatures they saw underwater. For more information about the programs offered at Uljin Ocean Leports Center, call (054) 781-5115 or go to www.uljinleports.co.kr.
