Your Go-To Winter Diet

Your Go-To Winter Diet

The dropping temperatures affect more than just our wardrobe, heating bill and the ability to drive like a normal human being, it affects our body too by changing its preference in what it wants to eat, its energy levels and metabolism. During the colder months, we need to be putting foods into our bodies that are going to keep us fuller for longer, but just because it is gross and cold outside, doesn't mean that we should be living on a diet of warm cookies, hot chocolate and pizza, so let's look at what we should be eating.

Root Vegetables

Local produce could be hard to come by in the colder months. Root vegetables like carrots, turnips, and beets are great options to incorporate into your winter diet, and chances are farmers will have them in stock due to these veggies being able to withstand cooler temperatures. Boiling turnips will give you your dosage of vitamins C and A while roasted carrots give you your boost of beta-carotene.

Oatmeal

This is the perfect way to start your morning. It provides essential nutrients that you need during the winter. Oatmeal is high in zinc and soluble fiber which is needed to keep your immune system in fighting shape and your heart in prime condition. If you can't get over oatmeal by itself, try throwing in some cinnamon and apples or even some berries and honey.

Spicy Tuna Roll

This shocked us too. You wouldn't think of sushi as your typical comfort food, but it will provide all the comfort you need this winter. Try sushi with either salmon or tuna – both are packed with vitamin D which is essential when exposure to the sun is so limited over the cooler months.

Now is the time when you should start to get your pantry and fridge ready for the winter meals coming your way. The healthier you eat during the winter, the more you can indulge at Christmas time, so stock up on those veggies and pack away the cookies in a few weeks.

Thanksgiving 2018

Thanksgiving 2018

Thanksgiving is literally at our front door right, and one thing everyone is looking forward to is that glorious post-turkey dinner nap and you know the one I am talking about. When you wake up from this nap you feel amazing and ready to conquer all of the problems this world has. But what if you could make it through a full Thanksgiving feast without the crash afterward. As amazing as it is, sometimes we don't have the time to take a nap because there is always so much going on during the holidays. If you need tips on how to avoid being pulled into the sweet nap abyss, keep reading.


Downsize


Instead of using a regular sized dinner plate, use a smaller one. Using this “hack” will trick your mind into thinking you are actually eating more, when in reality you are eating less. Doing this is a great way to feel indulgent without actually going overboard.


Sample


Take a little bit of everything to put on your plate, so you can taste everything without the risk of sleeping away the rest of your day when you are finished eating.       


Pre-game


Eat a small meal a few hours before the main course, starving yourself all day waiting for the big meal is only setting yourself up to fail because by the time you get to dinner you will be so hungry you will indulge and end up hibernating into 2019.


Healthy


Fill up on the healthy foods first when you sit down to eat, load up on turkey, salads, and veggies so you leave very little room for the carb-heavy foods that make you drowsy.



Thanksgiving is the time to bask in all of the good energy from the people you love in your life so don't let a 100-year nap take away any time from that. These rules are just a guideline to keep yourself on track, it's always hard to keep yourself in the right lane when you are surrounded by love and amazing food so, do you! From your family at Nutrovape, Happy Thanksgiving.




  

Avoiding Holiday Weight Gain

Avoiding Holiday Weight Gain

The holidays are slowly creeping up on us, and before we know it we will be sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Then a short time after that, Christmas. There's a whole lot of eating in a short amount of time. For those of us who have just spent months getting our summer bodies ready for the beach are looking down this tunnel of temptation trying to keep our eyes on the prize. If you are getting nervous about the carb and sweet loaded couple of months ahead of us, keep reading to get your anti-weight gain arsenal ready.


Don't Skip


Don't skip breakfast or lunch to save your appetite for the main meal. Eat small meals so you don't overindulge when the seconds are being passed around. This also means you can give in to your cravings too, but in moderation. The key to getting through the holidays is to not deprive yourself, but to know your limit and stick to it.


Protein


Instead of loading your plate up with stuffing and other carb-loaded dishes, try opting for more turkey or whatever meat you are eating. The bonus part of going hard on protein is that it will fill you up, and you can get some healthy muscle growth out of it too. Try adding quinoa, lentils, and beans for some healthier carb and protein-packed dishes.


Tupperware


Invest in some festive Tupperware and have some doggie bags ready for your guests. Keeping all of the leftovers is a sure fire way for you to keep indulging. Before your guests try to leave you will platters of food, beat them to the punch and have leftovers ready for them to take home.


Nutrovape


Nutrovape Diet is the best weapon to have to get you through the upcoming food war. With just a few inhalations before you sit down to eat, your appetite will be curbed and you will be able to pass on multiple courses and your waistline will thank you.


The holidays should be focused around spending time with your family, our weight and appearance should be the last things on our minds because the people who truly matter in life don't care what you look like.
