featured an article, written by Suzanne Owens, Kenyon’s Vice President of Sales, about green & sustainable cooking options for extended stay hospitality.

To meet this demand and capture the opportunity, many hoteliers are converting from limited service to extended stay.  New hotel construction, while quite limited, is for extended stay properties. Additionally, many existing extended stay properties are renovating to keep their suites clean and more appealing.  And along with this comes opportunities for better technologies especially as it relates to the 2-burner cooktop typically found in the guestroom kitchenette.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, 2021…is FINALLY here!!!

After months of quarantining/staying home and baking banana bread, many of us are eager to hit the reset button. It’s time to live up to those promises we made to ourselves and eat healthier, workout, and most importantly feel better. Now more than ever, we are all focusing on the importance of leading healthy lifestyles to maintain strong immune systems.  It’s easier than ever to be super-motivated when that first week of January rolls around.

With the right tools, you can set yourself up for success, and instead of attempting that quick-fix diet (that never really works), we can find success following these simple tips;

Drink Water

Think you drink enough water? Think again. When it comes to optimal hydration, be sure to follow this simple rule:

Consume half your body weight in fluid ounces of H2O

Example: 150lbs = 75 fl oz

Often, when our bodies are lacking water, we feel even more hungry than we normally do. You may even find yourself eating far less once you become properly hydrated.

Level up your resolution by trying some healthy add-ins like fresh lemon or lime, fruit, or cucumber.

7-8 Hours of Sleep

Many of us are forced to stay home right now, which means more time on social media and watching TV. You might find yourself sleeping later and waking up groggy. Sleep is like any healthy habit: consistency is key.

Having trouble falling asleep at night?

  • Set a specific bedtime in your mind. Doing so gives your brain and body a little mental feedback on your body’s internal clock will start winding down. The more you keep a “bedtime routine,” the more your brain and body can recognize when it’s time to shift gears.
  • Drink hot herbal teas (like Chamomile or Kava) with honey and a slice of lemon. The lemon aids in digestion so you’ll have a better start to your morning and the herbs will help to calm your nervous system preparing your body for relaxation.
  • Stretching your hamstrings, back, and shoulders nightly will help release tension built up from your busy day.  This will also signal your body to shut down, helping you fall into a regenerative sleep.
  • Make sure your room is set to a cooler temperature during the night. Program your thermostat so this happens automatically.
  • Power Down- The soft blue glow from a cell phone, tablet, or digital clock on your bedside table may hurt your sleep. Turn off TVs, computers, and other blue-light sources an hour before you go to bed. Cover any displays you can’t shut off.
  • Try a series of 10 second deep-breathing excercises or listen to guided mediation or calming music that will lull you into a deep sleep.

Meal Planning

Plan ahead and you’ll never find yourself asking “What’s for Dinner tonight?” 

We are all spending more time in the kitchen cooking, so it’s important to devise a meal plan in advance so you can make fewer trips to the grocery store. Keep a magnetic notepad on the fridge detailing breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner and dessert selections for the entire week. You can also keep a digital version of your list on your phone. Once you’ve made your food plan of attack, go through each section and make a shopping list of all the ingredients you’ll need for every meal. Incorporate several of the same ingredients throughout the week to get the most out of your food and your budget (like proteins, salad, rice, fruit, vegetables, and eggs).

Just Move It

Dedicate a little time each day, at least 2o minutes, to some form of exercise. Invest in a pedometer to help keep you on track and accountable for your daily required movements,  I.E 10,000 steps per day! If you are working from home this is an especially vital habit to get your blood flowing and to boost your metabolism.

Don’t neglect strength training! Weight lifting doesn’t have to be intimidating. No need to go crazy, just get a small set of hand weights you can use at home.  After all, muscle burns fat! Watch “how to videos” to make sure you are using correct form and posture.

Grill Veggies and Proteins

Cooking on your grill is a great way to transform healthy foods and proteins into the perfect plate that never feels like a comprise. If you have a Kenyon grill you can keep your grill indoors and accessible on the kitchen counter along with other appliances you’ll need to have ready on the quick, like a blender, so preparation of your meals and snacks will feel almost effortless.

Add an assortment of spices, rubs and marinades to your protein of choice before grilling. Spices can be nutritionally valuable while adding a burst of flavor. Choose fresh or dried spices or get creative and make your own blends to keep on hand. A winter favorite of our’s is Tumeric which contains powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, much needed during the current pandemic.

Healthy Recipes to Make on Your Kenyon Grill:

The start of 2021 is very different from any beginning of a New Year we have ever experienced, but don’t give up on hope. Have faith, stay strong, and know good things and better times are on their way!

Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Happy

“If you’re a dedicated prepper, you’ve already got your bug-out bag, coronavirus prepping and pandemic prepping sorted out, with shelves full of rice and beans and bottles of water and gasoline. But for the rest of us, those trying to keep living our fairly normal lives while stuck at home, the stuff that can help us stay happier and more comfortable through the coming fall and winter months looks a little bit different.”

“The Kenyon City Grill is different from its electric peers because it is  a smokeless portable indoor/outdoor grill fully suited for all weather conditions, with  a patented concealed electric element that eliminates flare-ups from dripping fat, and because it is in contact with the grate, it eliminates the random hot and cold spots typical of gas grills, giving you more consistent temperature control. It also heats up very quickly, reaching 500° in less than 5 minutes and 600° in less than ten. The grate itself is non-stick and ideal for delicate fish or veggies, but still gives the colorful grill marks many cooks covet, and is dishwasher safe, as is the removable lid, while a disposable drip tray completes the easy clean up…”
