SLO Op Climbing brings high adventure films & activities to area

SLO Op Climbing

Full week of films and activities through Oct. 7 celebrates the great outdoors.

Last year’s benefit screening of Banff Film Festival’s Radical Reels tour in San Luis Obispo was such a success for SLO Op Climbing that they decided to expand one night of films to a full week of films and activities celebrating people in the outdoors from Sept. 30 to Oct. 7.

A joint venture between All Out Events and SLO Op Climbing, both run by Kristin and Yishai Horowitz, the event comes at a time when people start to wrap up their summer adventures and start thinking about winter.

Local produce company SLO Veg brings the bounty to the table

Food is an extremely intimate subject; it provides comfort just as much as it provides energy for living. What you eat matters to your health, and there can hardly be a more satisfying feeling than picking a fruit from a tree, or pulling a vegetable up from the chocolate-brown soil, dusting it off, and taking a bite – but just a small taste! – one, first tiny little nibble, and letting nature’s nectars delight my taste buds. It’s important not to overwhelm your tasters with an enthusiastic chomp. Take a small bite, chew slowly and gently, and feel the food.

What do you eat, Jeanne?

Although I eat healthy and am thin, my diet might not be the right one for you.  The way I eat won’t necessarily be the answer to a healthy body composition for you.  There are too many things to consider, before copying my diet.  Besides the fact that my cholesterol is about 120 mg/dl, my blood pressure hovers around 90/60 mm/Hg, and my body fat is about 17.4%, I have celiac disease (CD).  This column will explain what CD is and how it relates to me.  It was written not only to teach you about another aspect of health, but also to share with you my pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

31st Wildflower

When it was started in 1983, Wildflower was one of the first races in the novel sport of triathlon. Designed as a side event to what was truly a bluegrass music festival, the races gradually became the focus of the weekend, and over thirty years later, the trio of triathlons is one of the largest, most highly anticipated elite races in the world. For those who haven’t experienced what has been called the “Woodstock of Triathlons,” Colleen Bousman, President of Tri-California Events, Inc.

Take aim and let fly

Archery on the Central Coast

There’s something inherently romantic about archery. Perhaps it’s the simplicity, the fact that a stick and some string can send an arrow flying clear across a field. Or maybe it’s the bridge archery creates between modern men and women and our ancient ancestors, people whose lives depended on their ability to shoot accurately. For Riley Royce Smith, a local marksman and archery instructor, the most enjoyable aspect is the Zen-like peace he gets from the repetitive act of mastering a craft.

Activities: 

Try a healthy beet salad

Candy striped chioga beets are an excellent source of potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, vitamin A, B and C – they also help purify the blood and prevent some cancers. Eating them raw gives them great texture when sliced thin and tossed with Central Coast Creamery’s Goat Gouda and Kumquats and Basil. This is a beautiful spring salad and a little goes a long way; it would also be a great side to roasted chicken.
