These days, it seems like everyone is telling us to drink more water and the importance of staying hydrated. The more water you drink, the more energy you have and the better you feel, even increasing productivity at work. There are apps for your smart phone and stickers for your water bottle that help you drink more water and gauge how hydrated you are. However, no matter how much we try, it can be hard to know how much water is the right amount to drink. While there is no magic number or perfect number of glasses to have per day, here are the top 5 healthy hydration tips to help you throughout your day.
Staying plant-based on birthdays can be tricky! First, if you are the parent of a child and it is their birthday, you may not want to dictate a whole food, plant-based dinner. But, if it is you or a loved one who is already plant-based, then it is both easy and fun to create a special celebration. Here are several ideas to try:
"I've been a strict vegan for many years, and at first I lost a lot of weight.
Then over the past few years, my weight crept back up197lbs to be exact.
So I'm struggling along using my fitness pal counting every calorie. Losing weight was such a struggle..."
"Hi! My name is Nancy Mathews, and I’m 53 years young. I’ve been whole food plant based since March 1st, 2012. My journey began when I gained 60 pounds after quitting smoking. One addiction led to another. I ate everything not nailed down. I was also 40 pounds +/- overweight when I quit smoking. I felt terrible, I was short of breath, out of shape, all my joints hurt plus I was starting the menopause journey...
Snacking is a common habit that almost everybody does. Is it healthy? Yes! The trick is keeping our snacks healthy and plant-based. We often reach for things like chips, cookies, crackers, and even candy.
Picture this: you’ve just gotten home from a long day. You have family members who need you, friends you want to catch up with, or maybe a favorite tv show you’ve been looking forward to. Plus, you have to make dinner or maybe plan for tomorrow’s meals and you wonder how to fit it all in.
Snacks should be quick, easy, and convenient. There are so many healthy snacks to choose from such as fresh fruit and cut veggies, baked tortilla chips, bean dips, salsas, whole grain and low-fat crackers, and oil-free popcorn. If we shift our “snacking mindset,” we discover that it can also be cheap and easy to incorporate healthier whole foods as snacks.
Refurbishing traditional recipes is a creative challenge that I love tackling. During our 10 day Jumpstarts at PlantPure, we have used many classic family recipes to lure people into the plant-based lifestyle; going plant-based doesn’t mean we must sacrifice flavor. In fact, the flavors and textures that can be found in the Plant Kingdom are amazing.
