During the cold winter months, it’s easy to fall into a habit of comfort eating and drinking. The change in seasons is a great time to reassess your kitchen and freshen up your diet. Try these simple tips to get your kitchen spring-ready! 

CLEAN OUT YOUR CUPBOARDS
While you’re spring cleaning the rest of your home, take a few moments to take stock of what’s hiding in your pantry. Scan ingredients on packaged foods and toss any with excessive ingredient lists of high sugar and sodium content. And if anything’s been sitting in the pantry for a little too long, go ahead and get rid of it – it’s only taking up precious cabinet space for healthy alternatives. Some good pantry staples include: water-packed tuna, all-natural nut butters, whole grain crackers or pretzels, trail mix, whole grain pastas and chickpeas.


ADD SOME COLOR
One of the best things about spring is the arrival of new seasonal produce, both at the grocery store and farmers markets. Take advantage of all of the colorful produce, including asparagus, apricots, zucchini and berries. And bonus, the more colorful the fruit or vegetable, the more vitamins and minerals it is likely to have. Eating a rainbow of foods is an excellent way to stock up on fiber, vitamins and antioxidants. To up your intake, add peppers and mushrooms to your scrambled eggs, fresh berries or avocado to your salads, or take sandwiches up a notch with some fresh arugula – you get the idea!


DRINK UP

As the temperature rises, so does your body’s need for water. When your body lacks adequate hydration, it can leave you feeling sluggish. Your body can also misinterprets thirst for hunger, adding unnecessary calories to your diet! A good rule of thumb for active individuals is to drink .5-1 ounce of liquid per pound of body weight daily. And be sure to up the H2O following a workout to replace what was lost from sweating. Have a tough time drinking that much water? You can also get a boost in hydration from water-rich produce, such as cantaloupe, lettuce and celery, to name a few.
