The arrival of spring time also brings with it longer days, more sunshine, warmer weather and a multitude of fresh produce. So wipe away the darker winter months and spring clean your body by incorporating more fresh produce and enjoying plenty of fun outside activities.

How to Spring Clean Your Body:

  • Use the plate method to help you plan meals. Fill half your plate with non-starchy vegetables, a quarter of your plate with a starchy carbohydrate like whole grains, fruits or sweet potatoes, the other quarter of your plate with good quality lean proteins and remember to incorporate in healthy fats in moderation.
  • Opt for variety. Go on a veggie adventure and try to pick at least one new vegetable a week that you’ve never had before. Research online how to prepare it or use it in recipes. It may become a new favorite!
  • Incorporate more fresh local produce. Buying in season local fruits and veggies will not only help support local farmers but in season produce tends to be cheaper, taste more flavorful and reap the most nutritional value. During the spring time enjoy fresh strawberries, asparagus, artichokes, beets, scallions, rhubarb, radishes and a variety of fresh greens like spinach, arugula and watercress.

Congratulations, you made it through the week and the weekend is here!  During the week, many of us have the structure that we need to meet our wellness goals, but once the weekend comes it can be a challenge to balance fun with fitness. So why not do both? This weekend, try one (or all) of these ideas from our BLR life coaches:

  1. alt       Invite a friend to go for a walk.  It will allow you to catch up and get your step count up!
  2.        Weekend Challenge!  See how many miles you and your friends can log between Friday at 5pm until Sunday at 10pm Miles count for cardio equipment or good old fashioned running and or walking outside.
  3.        Support a cause.  Sign-up for a race that benefits a charity you care about.  Invite a group of friends and do it together. 
  4.        Meet a friend for coffee, but walk to your local coffee shop.
  5.        Plan!  If you know you are headed out for dinner at a local hot spot, plan for it.  Get your workout in, have a healthy breakfast and lunch, then allow yourself to enjoy dinner in moderation. Have a cocktail, skip the bread basket, split an entrée and share dessert.  It will be satisfying, without too much sacrifice.
  6.        Me Time.  Make it happen. You’ve worked hard all week, now give yourself a break and enjoy your progress.
  7.        Beware of the all-or-nothing mindset.  If you miss a workout or have an off day with food, every meal and every day is a chance to get back on track.

Here are some winning plays from Lou Ann Chvatal, MS, RD, LDN, Biggest Loser Resort - Chicago Dietitian: 

1.   Trick your taste buds! Flavor your water pitchers with slices of citrus fruit, chunks of melon, cucumbers, to name a few. 

2.   Swap ingredients smartly.  Switch out the sour cream in those dip recipes with non-fat yogurt.  Greek yogurt is an even better swap as it’s a good source of protein.
