Hi, and welcome back to www.SimpleEats.com. I’m Vektween, your blog host. Chef T and I want to make sure that you are staying healthy during this unprecedented time. COVID-19 has permanently changed the way that we all live, but it doesn’t have to change our healthy habits. Many of you may now find yourselves wrapping up your seasonal cleaning, and spending more time in the kitchen trying to kickstart a healthy Spring Season. We have covered a few of those helpful topics in our blogs so you can continue to live healthy during this crisis and protect yourself as well.
Spring is here… so, what do you do?
One of the many perks of the season is the warmer weather, which us the chance to bring our healthy eating journey even closer to home by growing some of our own vegetables and produce. Now, if you don’t have a green thumb, and don’t feel so savvy with growing your fruits and vegetables, don’t feel bad. There are many options for you besides having an outdoor garden; perhaps try an indoor garden tower which has all the perks of owning your own Plant Tower, while living in NYC or any city for that matter. Whether you’re gardening or growing your produce on the Plant Tower, it’s still a fun and exciting way to improve your own health, improve the quality of your food, reduce the cost of groceries and inspire your family to pursue a healthier lifestyle, all starting from home. Home gardening is a simple way to create fun, health inspired moments with your family, as you cook and create new traditions together. Not to mention that home gardening is a great way to get connected in your community and is beneficial for the environment.
Spring Cleaning, Eating Healthy and Sleep
While you’re cleaning out your fridge, consider making a few simple swaps for your go-to ingredients, and if you stumble across that Instant-Pot, here are some simple recipes for you to explore, consider 21 days of re-setting your body with real food, and recipes designed for a healthy lifestyle, back in to your rotation to help get you back on track. When you’re ready to take a break and cool off, just whip up this amazing healthy vegan berry smoothie! If you’re looking to make some even bigger changes to your diet this season, consider your options when it comes to gluten-free. During all the hectic cleaning, especially because of COVID-19, and all the disinfecting that’s needed to keep a safe environment, make sure you’re also getting enough good, quality rest by including healthy food for sleep in your diet.
We know you’ll want to feel your best heading into the warmer weather of Spring, and most importantly you want your immune system to stay strong, as we continue to deal with the spread of the coronavirus.
