Staying Warm and Healthy this Weekend!

Standard

 

Looks like this weekend is going to be a winter wonderland! There are several healthy ways to be prepared for the snow. You don’t have to stock up on fatty comfort foods. Instead eat a healthy and hearty soup. Drink soothing and nutritious teas in place of hot chocolate with whipped cream. For breakfast have a nice hot bowl of oatmeal with fresh berries, this provides the body with plenty of fiber. One important thing is to make sure you have water. Drink water with fresh lemon. This helps with digestion and to detox the body. Just because you are snowed in does not mean you can’t exercise. Grab that yoga mat and relieve some stress  or pop in that cardio DVD.  Hope you find these tips helpful!
