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.

Stay Calm And Ace Tests

Stay Calm And Ace Tests
As exams draw closer with the upcoming holiday season, students around the world are currently re-reading, highlighting and starting that climb up stress mountain. It is totally normal and expected to get anxious about exams; they are intimidating and hold your final grade in the balance. It is important, however, that you remain calm and clear-headed when writing tests or exams so the answers can come to you easier. If you are about to start that steep climb and are experiencing stress on stress on stress, then keep reading.

Positive Vibes

Talk yourself up, you are your own worst critic so, start telling yourself how you are going to rock that exam and blow your professor's mind with your incredibly intelligent essay, short answers, and general knowledge. The more you build yourself up, the less room you have for any doubt that you are going to fail. You can do this and once you believe it, it will happen.

Focus On You

Don't fixate on what anyone else is doing, especially once you are in the testing room. As soon as that test starts, you are the only one in that room and you are going to take your time and read every question thoroughly and take the time to answer everything. If you need to take your eyes off your paper to refocus, just close your eyes and take a couple deep breaths.

Read

Before you even start writing anything, read through the test, every question and all of the instructions. A lot of people get so overwhelmed by the test that they don't take the time to read everything and take in all of the details. Take a few minutes and read through the test to plan your strategy of attack.

Tests and exams really are the worst, because some people just genuinely don't test well, no matter how much they study. Stress does worse things to your body than a test ever could. Going into any test this exam season just remember to stay calm and keep telling yourself that you are going to destroy whatever your professor throws your way.

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.
