Tips on eating healthy in the winter
Summer time brings an abundance of fruits and vegetables, so eating healthy in summer isn’t very difficult at all. Winter on the other hand, requires us to vary our game plan. True, you won’t get juicy ears of corn but there is an abundance of winter fruits and vegetables too – we just need to know what they are. Come winter and most of us stock up on canned foods. We don’t need to do that. We can eat fresh fruits and vegetables in the winter too and this article will explain how.
Eating healthy in the winter tip 1: You can Buy Fresh in Winter too!
Vegetables such as Beets Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Potatoes, Spinach, Sweet potatoes, Winter squash, turnips, parsnips and rutabagas grow in abundance in winter. The fruit list too is equally extensive and includes Bananas, Grapes, Oranges, Pomegranate, Cranberries, Kiwi, Passion fruit, Pears and Tangerine.
Eating healthy in the winter tip 2: Know your menu!
Always plan your menu and based on your plan, prepare the shopping list. Your plan should always be to include fresh produce of the season. Avoid canned and processed food as much as possible.
Tips on eating healthy in the summer
It is very easy to eat healthy in the warmer months so we must not let go of the opportunity. The local grocery stores are flooded with an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables and so there is absolutely no reason to buy canned or processed food during the summer. Summer also means you can bring out the BBQ and enjoy grilled foods every evening.
Eating healthy in the summer tip 1: Know your meats
Buy your meat from the local butcher shop rather than the mall. At the butcher shop you can see and select lean cuts of beef, including round, sirloin and loin cuts. You do not have to buy precut and packaged stuff from the mall. Also, meats in the mall may not be as fresh as meat at the butchers shop.
