Are you tired of suffering from the symptoms of inflammation? Pain, achiness, and fatigue are all things you could do without. Luckily an anti-inflammatory diet, which decreases these symptoms, is pretty easy to follow. It's more or less a healthy diet that focuses on mostly whole foods while minimizing packaged and processed products. Who needs another restrictive low-calorie fad diet when you can get awesome results by eating a simple, healthy eating plan?
Too hot to turn on the oven? You can still enjoy all the colorful fruits and vegetables available this season! Summer is my favorite time of year to fire up the grill and take dinner outdoors. I don't eat meat, so I load up my barbecue with seasonal veggies like corn and bell peppers instead. They taste amazing with fresh greens and vinaigrette! Looking for more warm-weather cooking ideas?
Wondering how to add more protein into your diet? Despite the fancy labels, protein powders aren't any healthier than protein-rich, whole foods like edamame, nut butter, and beans. I usually get more than enough protein from natural foods—but when I really want to amp things up, I add just egg white protein powder to smoothies and oatmeal. Want to learn more about the dos and dont's of protein powders?
Staying hydrated is essential—especially on hot summer days—but you don't need to rely only on the water you drink to get enough. Fresh produce naturally contains water (and a LOT of it!). So you can up your hydration game by eating more fruits and vegetables. How am I doing this? Refreshing smoothies and colorful salads make staying hydrated easy and delicious.
