4 Easy Ways to Boost Your Nutrition

The pandemic has kept us mostly at home for a year now, and your body probably hasn’t received it’s much-needed nutrition. According to a new study published in March 2021, you’re not alone. The study found that, on average, people gained 1.5 pounds per month from February to June 2020. It concluded that the weight gain was a result of a more sedentary stay-at-home life with an increase in snacking and overeating. If your diet has been more Uber Eats than uber-healthy lately, we’ve got some easy-to-implement tips to boost your nutrition. 

Note: These are general, common-sense tips. For a more detailed weight-loss or nutrition plan, it’s always best to consult a physician and/or registered dietitian.

4 Easy Ways to Eat Better 

Eat a salad 

One salad. Every day. Make it a side, or make it your meal. There are so many different types of salads, from leafy greens dressed simply with lemon juice, to Asian-inspired bowls with crunchy seeds and salty, umami-rich dressings. You’re bound to find one that you like. And the proliferation of mix-and-eat bagged salads in the grocery store means that making a salad need only take a minute or two.

Drink more water

You already knew you should be doing this, but are you? The absolute minimum should be eight cups a day, more if you drink caffeine or alcohol, or if it’s hot out. Don’t like the flavor of water? Steep an herbal tea bag in your bottle or squeeze in some citrus for a refreshing twist.

Try new produce

Stuck in a rut? Make a point of trying a new fruit or vegetable a couple times a month. International grocery stores are a good place to find something new to you. You might find a new winner.

Eat fewer animal products

Commit to eating a plant-based meal once a week. Use it as an opportunity to try new recipes and ingredients. Swapping out chicken for chickpeas reduces your carbon footprint, saves money and calories and ups your intake of fiber. You can eat that burger tomorrow.

These are small changes but they can add up in a big way. Following them will help increase your energy level, improve your digestive health, & overall boost your nutrition! Make 2022 your healthiest year yet.

3 Vegetables That Are Easy To Grow — We Promise

Dreaming of harvesting your own vegetables this summer, but have a poor track record when it comes to keeping plants alive? Don’t despair. Gardening is easier than you think. Building a garden is also a great joint project to do with your partner. And with spring just around the corner, the time to get started is now! To help encourage a budding green thumb (pun very much intended), we’ve made a quick list of three vegetables that are easy to grow. Check them out and then get yourselves out to the garden center!

3 Herbs and Vegetables You Won’t Kill This Spring

Mint

Mint is so easy to grow that it can overrun your garden if you’re not careful. You can weed it—or not. Put it in the sun, or don’t. It also won’t hold a grudge if you forget to water it for a few days. Easy-going mint will just keep growing. 

Plant it in a container so it doesn’t take over your whole yard. Then enjoy mojitos and fresh tabbouleh all season, and beyond. Mint is a perennial, so it will return year after year.

Lettuce

If you love salad, you’re in luck. From nutritious spinach to trendy kale, spicy arugula or fresh young lettuce, greens are some of the easiest things to grow. They are also ready to harvest more quickly than the other things on this list, making them a great crop for quick gratification.

Lettuce needs partial sunlight, which means that you can grow it even if you don’t have a garden plot that’s in full sunlight. It also does very well in containers, so you can grow it on a balcony or even in a sunny apartment window.

Carrots

Carrots take a little longer than lettuce, but they are really fun to pull out of the ground. And homegrown carrots are much more delicious than their grocery store counterparts. Once you’ve tried them, you’ll never want to resort to bags of uniform baby carrots again.

They come in a rainbow of colors and varieties. Try purple carrots or white carrots for a fun twist on the classic.

Growing your own vegetables is an addictive hobby that will give your weekends purpose and impress your friends. So get out there and start planting these vegetables that are easy to grow!
