Fresh As A State of Mind And Food


Afternoon everyone! I wanted to blog to you a bit about variety. With fitness it is very important to incorporate variety into your workouts. The one area this variety sometimes gets overlooked is on the nutritional front. I wanted to touch on a couple of areas of food intake and utilizing variety there.

Fresh fruits ― don’t think just apples or bananas. These are great choices, but try some “exotic” fruits, too. How about a mango? Or a juicy pineapple or kiwi fruit! When your favorite fresh fruits aren’t in season, try a frozen, canned, or dried variety of a fresh fruit you enjoy. One caution about canned fruits is that they may contain added sugars or syrups. Be sure and choose canned varieties of fruit packed in water or in their own juice.

Fresh vegetables ― try something new. You may find that you love grilled vegetables or steamed vegetables with an herb you haven’t tried like rosemary. You can sauté vegetables in a non-stick pan with a small amount of cooking spray. Or try frozen or canned vegetables for a quick side dish — just microwave and serve. When trying canned vegetables, look for vegetables without added salt, butter, or cream sauces. Commit to going to the produce department or even the whole food market and trying a new vegetable each week.

If you ever need ideas for different kinds of veggies and nutritional value, email me and I can send you a ton!

Thanks For Reading!
