How to Use the Website

  1. See All the Recipes
    To see all the recipes on this website you need to click the Recipes tab on the menu. A Recipe Grid will appear.
  2. Recipe Classification
    All recipes are classified according to the scheme set out below. Above the Recipe Grid are filters that allow you to refine your search.

    1. Training Intensity
      • Low Intensity
        Low intensity feels easy. Here are clues that your exercise intensity is at a low level:

        • Your breathing quickens, but only a little.
        • You take longer than 10 minutes of activity to develop a light sweat.
        • You can sing a song.

        Using a heart rate monitor: less than 50 percent of your maximum heart rate.

      • Medium intensity
        Medium intensity feels somewhat hard. Here are clues that your exercise intensity is at a medium level:

        • Your breathing quickens, but you’re not out of breath.
        • You develop a light sweat after about 10 minutes of activity.
        • You can carry on a conversation, but you can’t sing.

        Using a heart rate monitor: 50 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate.

      • High intensity
        High intensity feels challenging. Here are clues that your exercise intensity is at a high level:

        • Your breathing is deep and rapid.
        • You develop a sweat after a few minutes of activity.
        • You can’t say more than a few words without pausing for breath.

        Using a heart rate monitor: 70 to 85 percent of your maximum heart rate.
