Here are some of my fav simple tips to make your day just a dash healthier.
Fats, fats and more fats
I used to be so scared of fats and oils! To me, fat in equaled fat on.
All of a sudden I kept seeing all of my favorite wellness Instagramers using ghee on everything, eating ½ an avocado at a time and making Bulletproof coffee every day. So, I decided to do research and eventually tried incorporating more fats into my diet.
Since I changed that mindset of fat being “bad” and eating more healthy fats, I started noticing my body really transform.
Now, I am fuller for longer and this is big for me because I’m a huge snacker!
I was always the girl in the gym who would workout and somehow barely sweat. And when you’re working your tail off it’s pretty frustrating.
Then I started experimenting with HIIT because, like I said, I love to play around in the gym and try new things.
HIIT is one of the only workouts that get me sweating like crazy! Plus, you don’t have to be in the gym for hours on end (such a plus). Getting a killer workout in just 30 mins is the best feeling ever.
HIIT is another reason my body started to change. Getting my heart rate up and constantly shocking my body with new moves really works for me. Love it!
Bringing your lunch
A tip for your body and wallet!
When you don’t pack your lunch for the office or school, you might have the best intentions to choose a healthy option, but peer pressure is a real thing. Often times spur of the moment choices are not the best for us.
I love to bring my lunch so I can have complete control over what I’m putting in my body and don’t have ragrets.
Warm lemon water
What an amazing way to start the day. I warm up a mug full of water and squeeze a ½ lemon every single morning, no matter what. For me, this takes precedent over coffee. Psycho? Maybe.
Side note – I should probably invest in a lemon squeezer but somehow I can’t bring myself to spend the $10.
Warm lemon water gets your metabolism & digestion going right when you wake up. I’ll try basically anything to aid my digestion. My morning cocktail flushes the digestive system and rehydrates the body and I feel more flat, which doesn’t hurt!
You’re hydrated, you’re doing good for your body, you’re glowing!
Living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be hard! That is what A Dash of nutMeg is all about!
Making small changes and implementing little tips and tricks will add up over time.
Keep it simple and consistent. You’ve got this!!
