Summer is all about letting loose. But it doesn’t mean you have to fall off the wagon when it comes to your fitness.
There are plenty of ways especially during this time of year to get moving.
The weather is warming up and you know what that means – summertime is here!
That means sunny days, warm weather, sunscreen and lots of time spent outdoors – on the beach, in the pool, hiking in the mountains, biking, picnics and all manner of interesting stuff.
You know what they say.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
But thanks to long commutes, demanding schedules and absence of quality food choices, breakfast for some of us means it’s whatever you can grab. Assuming you have any at all.
Ah, farmers markets. There is nothing like shopping for fresh, quality food products outdoors, and a trip here is as close to “straight from the source” as it gets.
The markets are popping up everywhere and are especially popular during this time of year.
Winter has come and gone. The snow has thawed, the sun is shining and after months of snuggling away indoors, many of us are itching to get back outdoors and delight in the magic of spring.
Our health and most of our immunity are in our gut. When we don't eat what our bodies need, we open the door for disharmony within our gut. Foods such as refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and sugar, stress, antibiotics, and infections can all lead to instability in the intestines.
To become healthy or to maintain health, you want to start by correcting the unstable environment in the digestive system.
Vitamin D is a nutrient that the body needs daily for good health. Most of the Vitamin D that we need is synthesized in the body as long as we are sufficiently exposed to the sun for 15 to 20 minutes a day. Read more for suggestions on foods that contain Vitamin D and what can occur if you do not get enough.
Having an allergy attack while eating out can be a very frightening experience for yourself, those with you, and the restaurant. Yet, you can actually enjoy eating out any time if you prepare in advance.
Winter can be a fun time of year. Sledding, skiing, snowshoeing are just a few of the great outdoor activities we love to enjoy. However, along with the fun of being outside, comes the sun, wind and dryness that can all cause damage to your skin.
