Check Out These 5 Seasonal Foods That Are Surprisingly Good For You!, Manhattan, New York

The crisp air of November bridges the gap between warm fall and chilly winter, often encouraging New Yorkers to head for hibernation. While personal fitness training from Mind Over Matter Health & Fitness makes it easy to stay in shape without leaving the comfort of your home, it’s important to remember that there’s more than one way to stay healthy!

Exercise is an important part of maintaining an active lifestyle, but you only get as much out of your body as you put into it. With that in mind, Mind Over Matter encourages all fitness clients to eat as healthy as possible, year-round. Just because the holiday season is approaching, doesn’t mean your health and fitness routine has to go the way of leftovers!

Here are five surprisingly healthful food groups you should look for to stay on the right track this season:

  • Meat. Most meats fall into the “warming foods” category, so it's important to stick with them during winter. Chicken, fish, and lamb are all excellent options.
  • Carrots. High in beta-carotene and full of additional vitamins, these are a delicious choice year-round. Try looking for freshly picked carrots at a local farmer's market.
  • Onions and garlic. Fresh and in season, these digestive aids will enhance your meals and boost your overall health.
  • Corn, potatoes and sweet potatoes. Yes, they can be starchy, but when prepared as part of nutritious recipes, these ingredients become the ideal nutrient-rich side dish. Try grilling for maximum flavor!
  • Spices! Ginger, peppercorns, and mustard seeds are all ideal, versatile fall additions to home-cooked meals.

When eating seasonally this fall and winter, the name of the game isn’t always vegetables. For further tips, tricks, and advice on staying healthy at home, contact Mind Over Matter Health & Fitness. The in-home personal training sessions, combined with the lifestyle advice offered by the personal wellness experts, will maximize your well-being year round.
