Hey Everyone,

The typical American home has 40 electronics powered up at
any given moment -- TV, cell phone chargers, blenders, etc.
What people don't realize is they are using electricity even
when they're powered off.

U.S. households spend as much as $100 per year powering these
"vampire" electronics.

Simple fix: Plug your devices into power strips and switch
them off at once at the end of the day.

Hint 1: Minimize using major appliances between the hours of 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Minimize indoor heat: run the dryer and dishwasher at
night on hot days and let your dishes air dry. Avoid heat-generating incandescent lighting and use a microwave, toaster oven or outdoor grill instead of the oven. It's best to avoid the use of major appliances between 2 and 8 p.m.

Hint 2: Keep refreshed with yummy smoothies during the hot summer months!

Fruit smoothies are a great way to get your five-a-day and
keep refreshed throughout the summer, but watch out for
smoothies made with frozen yoghurts or ice cream as they
can be extremely calorific.

A healthy smoothie should be made with fruit, juice, low
fat-yoghurt and ice. Use any fruit you might have or have
kept in the freezer, and throw it all in a blender to make
a perfect summer drink.
