MONDAY CHALLENGE! Eat more Veggies! We all know we’re supposed to eat our vegetables. The question is... how many of you actually get in more than 5 servings a day? Unless you make an active effort to eat them at every meal, “convenience” will get the better end of the deal and you’ll end up veggie-less. Here are a few things to keep in mind the next time you don’t see any veggies on your plate: • Vegetables are one of obesity’s main enemies. They are so low in calories and high in fiber that it’s difficult to overeat them and gain fat because of them. • The higher fiber content benefits our detoxification system… so a diet high in vegetables keeps your elimination pathways working spot-on. • Beauty starts on the inside- and a study published in The Journal of Public Health showed that carotenoids, a type of nutrient that’s found in red, yellow and orange vegetables, create the same natural "glow" in our skin that we try to get using cosmetic products. • Powerful antioxidants protect your skin from harmful UV rays, inflammation, and premature aging. • Even though fruit tastes amazing and is filled with vitamins and nutrients, they do have a higher amount of fructose than vegetables do. So between candy and fruit, choose fruit…. but between fruit and vegetables, vegetables are almost always a better choice. • Fresh vegetables are full of live enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that will protect your body against chronic diseases while at the same time provide you with energy! Your challenge this week is to make sure you’re getting at LEAST 5 servings of vegetables in every day. Will you be joining me in this challenge? Let me know in a comment below!

With our food supply growing in over worked fields our nutrient levels in foods are anywhere from 50-75% less than 20 years ago. Therefore supplements are necessary to gain complete levels of nutrients. With that said, not all supplements are created equal. Here is a great start on learning more about supplements. Want to know more about what supplement brands I recommend feel free to comment below or message me. Adding vitamins and minerals to your daily nutrition is a must.

Thursday Health and Wellness Tip! There are so many choices for eggs at the market these days. Let me make it simple: Free Range (though they cost a little more) pack a much bigger health punch than any alternative. They have 1/3 less cholesterol, 2/3 more vitamin A, 2x more omega 3’s, 3x more vitamin E, and 7x more beta-carotene.

WEDNESDAY RECIPES! Apple Mustard Pork Burgers INGREDIENTS: - 1 pound ground pork (ground chicken or turkey would work too) - 1 apple, cored peeled and shredded (or pear) - 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme - 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard - 1/4 teaspoon sea salt - 1/4 teaspoon chili powder (or fresh ground black pepper – I was out) - 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional, but brings out the apple) - 1 1/2 tablespoons gluten-free Dijon Mustard - 2 green onions, diced - 1 garlic clove, minced (or 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder) INSTRUCTIONS: - In a large bowl, mix all of the above ingredients together making sure to fully combine. Use your hands- it works great and is better for the meat. Let everything sit together for at least 30 minutes. If you can swing it, letting them sit overnight will make them mighty tasty too. - Then form into 6 equal portioned burger patties. - Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. - Once hot, place burgers on grill pan and allow them to cook on one side for about 3-4 minutes. Be careful here because if you flip them too soon there is a chance they will fall apart. - Once cooked on one side flip and cook on other side until completely cooked and no longer pink in the middle. - Serve immediately. If you have leftover, store in refrigerator and reheat in a skillet on both sides for a few minutes just to heat.

MONDAY CHALLENGE! ARE YOU UP FOR IT? Prepare at Least Three 100% Local Meals this Week Local food represents an alternative food model compared to the mainstream method where food travels long distances before it reaches our markets. A local food network creates relationships between people. Everyone from farmers to consumers work together to increase food security and stability of a community. When you choose to eat local, you’re putting money right back into your own community and supporting a more sustainable food source. Local foods also… • Are fresher and taste better. • Are more nutritious because you’re buying seasonal food. • Are more beneficial also because you’re eating food closer to when it was harvested which means the vitamin and mineral content is still high. • Benefits the environment (fewer carbon emissions during travel). • Helps preserve local farmlands and pastures. • There’s less chance for contamination because there are fewer steps between your food source and your table. • Will give you more variety because local farmers have a wider range than you can find at the grocery store. Choosing local is great for the community AND great for you! Time to make a trip to the local farmers market! This week’s challenge is to make three meals using 100% local ingredients (minus the spices)! Are you in? Let me know in a comment below, what did you choose to prepare?
