Laini and I are at Costco again this week sharing with you our favorite organic and paleo convenience foods. Some days it's hard to get it all done and create an amazing dinner from scratch. We get it! We have those days as well. It's those days that we reach for these foods to make sure we eat something yummy, fast and healthy.
What are your favorite healthy fast options? Share with us in the comments.
This Wellness Wednesday, Laini and I took a trip to Costco to show you all of the great organic whole foods you can buy on a budget. We often hear that it's too expensive to eat whole foods and especially organic whole foods. Check out all of the fantastic options we found. These organic foods are great options until our local farmers markets come online. Enjoy!
Before I moved to Montana I lived in Nevada where I worked for the Cooperative Extension. I taught classes on arboriculture, horticulture, home gardening and staffed a help desk to answer questions people had about trees, flowers, veggies and all things related to growing plants. I LOVE plants and still am an avid and active gardener. I have been eating the herbs in my garden for the past three weeks and look forward to veggies soon!
Today's Live with Leslie and Laini is all about growing herbs. Herbs are by far the easiest things to grow as you can grow them in pots or in the ground. There are several that grow like mad here in Montana. You, too, can flavor your food with homegrown herbs and reap the benefits of all the delicious health benefits of these super food plants.
Check out this gardening guide from Montana Cooperative Extension on growing herbs in our area. Happy gardening!
Sunshine on My Shoulders Makes me Happy!
Despite the importance of vitamin D, it’s estimated that anywhere from 30% to 80% of the U.S. population is vitamin D insufficient. For us Montanans, we make make absolutely ZERO vitamin D from the sunlight between November and March. Yep - that means unless you're taking supplements in the winter, you're most likely very low on vitamin D.
The good news is that from March - November all we need is 15 mins of mid-day sun to get all the Vitamin D we need. Woohooo! So on our next sunny day (the forecast is for sunshine today:-) get outside for 15 mins. With today's workout that should be no problem!
Watch today's Wellness Wednesday video with Laini and Leslie to learn more about how you can get your daily dose of Vitamin D.
