Creamy Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

This healthy version of chicken and dumplings is thick and chunky. Unlike traditional cream-based soups, it calls for evaporated milk, which has less fat and more protein than heavy cream. Spinach, carrots, and celery round out this recipe, which is way more nutritious than it looks.

Mexican Street Corn Soup

This recipe is inspired by a street food favorite. Stripping corn off the cob might take a little more effort, but using fresh corn (along with lime juice, and cilantro) will definitely pay off. Trust.

Do the Jet Lag Workout

Exercising the morning after your arrival can help you adjust to the new time zone faster, says Karyn Esser, Ph.D., a professor of physiology and functional genomics at the University of Florida. That's because your muscles have their own internal clocks, and they respond to movement rather than light, she says. Working out tells them that it's daytime, which lets you sync physiologically to your new time zone. Esser suggests doing some cardio for at least 30 minutes.
