With the holidays fast approaching, we’re more tempted than ever by all the rich, not-so-healthy foods around us. And while indulging now and then is part of life, we can all use a few delicious-but-nutritious snacks to enjoy in between those moments of heavy meals and treats. Here are a few easy, tasty, and fortifying dishes you can whip up this weekend:
Our new breakfast items will set the tone for your whole day. Eating a satisfying, delicious, nutrient-packed breakfast is a powerful tool in maintaining a healthy weight, and to remind yourself that you’re a person who values healthy choices. When you make the right choices, you keep your metabolism cranking, your mental clarity and energy levels high, and you set your entire day on the right track.
I also recommend starting with a green juice to kick off your day. So add it to any of our brand new breakfast items offered at our location at Healthworks in Back Bay, including the following two. Both are bolstered in nutritional value since they contain our almond milk which is loaded with protein, antioxidants, plus vitamins such as E and B complex, and minerals such as manganese, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and fiber.
This is one time of year that, more than many others, celebrates the glory of the barbecue. Grilling meat is embedded in the culture of American summer. And though I wouldn’t ever advise anyone against enjoying it if it’s what they enjoy, it is worth having a conversation about how do to it the right way—for your own health, for the health of our planet’s animals, and its entire ecosystem as a whole.
What a mighty ally the cucumber is! They hydrate us, replenish us with vitamins and minerals while helping eliminate toxins. They’re loaded up with anti-oxidants, and have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits. What’s more, they aid in weight loss, digestion, reduce cholesterol, and help control blood pressure. Now that’s a power veggie.
