6 Tips for a good attitude this Winter

By | Uncategorized

Winter is here, which means less sunlight, colder weather and a lot of time indoors. We don’t know about you, but when the weather gets cold it’s a lot harder for us to stay motivated. It could be a lot easier if we could just hibernate and wait for Spring, but unfortunately that’s not the case.

Here are six tips for a good attitude this Winter

1. Take up a new hobby – Whether it’s painting, reading or making funny videos, it’s important to find hobbies in the house that don’t include screens. Although binging Netflix is always tempting, finding hobbies that really work that brain of yours will bring you much more enjoyment and satisfaction.

Stick to your plans

2. Stick to your routine – When it’s dark and gloomy outside, it’s easy to want to stay cozied up in a blanket all day. But, sticking to your daily routine is a proven fact that you’ll feel better as well as more motivated. Wake up around the same time, eat your meals around the same time and exercise around the same time. Which brings us to our next point…

3. Staying active – holy smokes this is an important one. It’s about time we dust off the old treadmill/coat hanger and get our indoor workouts in. Whether you go to the gym or workout at home, there’s a million exercises you can do from the comforts of your own living room. Social media is a great place to find all kinds of workouts that you can do from anywhere. So there’s no excuses to working out this winter!

4. Organize – Declutter those rooms that were neglected while you were at the pool this Summer. Organizing can always seem like such a daunting task, but when you take it one closet, drawer or room at a time it’s always a little easier.

family time this winter

5. Get in touch with family and friends – with the holiday’s quickly approaching, it’s a great time to slow down and reach out to friends and family. Host a game night or a themed party. Make cookies together and send them to someone who needs their day brightened. We’re all feeling that cold weather gloominess, so any chance you can take to make your day or someone else’s day better is a day well spent.

treat yourself

6. You time – Take time to relax and pamper yourself a little. Go get a facial or massage or even put a puzzle together. The time is yours and it’s important to take time for yourself every once in a while. Take your time to recenter and find your zen, so when the Springtime rolls around you’re ready to go!

Here’s to making these gloomy months a little bit better,

Healthy Food Swaps You Should Try

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

If you’re trying to stick to a healthy diet, sweet and savory temptations can derail any of your good intentions. And while you should never have to completely eliminate any of your favorite foods, you can definitely satisfy your cravings with some simple healthy swaps.

Try out these healthier alternatives for different “junk” food cravings to help keep you on track with your health-related goals.

PIZZA

Craving a big slice of cheesy pepperoni with smooth marinara sauce? Try veggie pizzas. Swap out the crust for a low-calorie vegetable alternative such as mini eggplant pizzas, portobello mushroom pizzas, or zucchini pizza boats. You can also make a more traditional crust out of mashed cauliflower, eggs, and a little mozzarella.

PASTA

Craving a zesty pasta? Try using veggie noodles. Make your favorite pasta sauce then pour it on top of spaghetti squash instead of regular pasta noodles. You can also try making your own noodles with a veggie spiralizer with zucchini. Swapping out your noodles for veggie alternatives gives you more vitamins and fiber at much less of a caloric cost.

If your favorite sauce is a cream sauce, try swapping out the heavy cream, cheeses, and butter for plain nonfat Greek yogurt. It gives the creamy consistency without the extra calories, plus it is packed with protein and calcium.

CHIPS

If you’re wanting the crispy salty crunch of potato chips, try making your own kale chips. Get the crunch without all the calories and trans fats. Just trim leaves, toss with 2 tbsp olive oil, and bake at 275 for 20 minutes. You can also try it with sweet potatoes, zucchinis, spinach, or Brussel sprouts!

If you’re wanting the crunch and creamy combo of chips and dip, try veggie sticks with hummus, or sweet potato chips with some chunky tomato based or mango salsa.

CANDY & DESSERT

Got a sweet tooth? Go for fruit, aka natures candy. If you’re feeling tangy sweet, go for pomegranates, kiwis, or grapes. If you’re feeling more of a rich sweet, bake some red apples or peaches sprinkled with cinnamon. Blend some fruits together with a little ice and coconut water for a sweet smoothie.

If you’re craving chocolate, go for some dark chocolate or cacao which makes you feel satisfied much quicker than milk chocolate plus dark chocolate contains antioxidants. Our non-glycemic chocolate also makes a great healthy treat!

Want something creamy? Make a fruit parfait with Greek yogurt, berries, and a little granola. Or you can blend together some yogurt, strawberries, and a banana for a creamy smoothie.

FRIES

Craving some salty thick cut fries? (Who doesn’t?) Try sweet potato fries. Don’t fry them in oil, but lightly coat sliced sweet potatoes in olive oil, salt, and pepper then bake for 25 minutes at 425 degrees. You’re getting less fat by baking instead of frying, plus sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene, vitamin C, pro-vitamin E, anthocyanins and more!
