Extend Your Outdoor Season

October 16th, 2014

With the cool, crisp nights that fall brings many people extend their time spent outside by gathering around a gas fire pit or outdoor fireplace. While summer months may be too hot for a fire, the fall season is great for spending time outside. The Outdoor GreatRoom Company offers everything you need to create your own cozy outdoor room from furniture to fire pits to pergolas.

Pergolas can provide shelter from wind, sun, falling leaves, and even snow (hey, that fire pit will keep you warm!) We love pergolas for many reasons but the way they complete an outdoor room and tie everything together is our favorite.

Fire pits and fireplaces are an obvious choice in using to extend your outdoor season. With cooler fall and even winter nights, a fire pit or fireplace can keep you warm.

What’s an outdoor room without furniture? We have comfortable outdoor furniture that matches all of our products perfectly. Find the perfect height chair for your fire pit table or fireplace.

  6. LED light technology offers high definition realistic looking flames. LED’s last for 35,000 hrs+.

  8. Built-in heater operates on high & low settings and no heat when it is not wanted or needed– great for everyday, year-round use

Summer Wellness Challenge

June 19th, 2014

OGC started our Summer Wellness Challenge last week. We split into 3 teams and are keeping track of points based on healthier lifestyle options. The three teams will compete in other various challenges throughout the summer such as healthy recipe contests, group exercise challenges, and more!

One of the hardest parts about leading a healthy lifestyle is staying active, especially if your job entails you to sit at a desk. Simple tasks like going for a walk on your lunch break or parking your car farther away from the door so you have to walk farther are easy to achieve goals that anyone can do. Some in our office go the extra mile and increase their daily movement with gardening or team sports and some participate in added cardiovascular exercise and strength training.

Another thing everyone can be better about no matter your age or physical condition is healthy eating habits. We’ve been sharing healthy recipes with each other and encouraging healthy eating habits such as eating more fruits, veggies, lean meats, and trying new healthier foods. Of course at OGC we love to grill and our Legacy 2 Electric Grill is great for grilling healthy meals and snacks. It’s also portable so whether you’re grilling in your backyard, camping, or tailgating, healthy and tasty recipes are easy to achieve. Here are some of our favorite recipes below.

Main Dish: Grilled Salmon & Scallop Skewers

salmon-scallop-skewers-hl-1898577-x

Salmon has great health benefits such as high quality protien and Omega-3 fatty acids.

 

Side Dish: Packet-Grilled Balsamic Green Beans & Peppers

81de229924c83ee21d5fecfff38ea046

Peppers have been linked to weight-loss, pain reduction, and contain antioxidants.

 

Dessert: Grilled Balsamic Peaches & Frozen Yogurt

3828a62372ecfc703b1c7c4808af7a9c

Just because you are trying to eat healthy doesn’t mean you need to cut out dessert. Substitute regular ice cream for frozen yogurt and get sweetness from fruit instead of added sugar or artificial flavoring.
