Comments: Classes at LAB5 don’t feel like a chore. I’m often surprised when the class is over because it doesn’t seem like 50 minutes have gone by. Just started adding the Yoga class with Leslie and am going to try the Cardio Dance class. All the instructors are great.

Recipes: Lemon & Herb Roasted Chicken with Vegetables



  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped oregano, plus 1 sprig
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped thyme, plus 1 sprig
  • 2 teaspoons roughly chopped rosemary, plus 1 sprig
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced plus 3 whole garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 4 – pound chicken, patted dry

  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock or water


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees . Grate lemon zest into a bowl and add oil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, minced garlic, salt and pepper and stir until incorporated. 
  2. Halve lemon and place inside cavity of chicken with whole garlic cloves and herb sprigs. Rub all but 2 teaspoons lemon-herb mixture under skin; rub remaining mixture on skin and tie legs together with kitchen twine.
