By Genevieve Cunningham
With spring around the corner, it's a good time to start thinking about making positive changes in your life. Even in warm climates, the change of season can bring a new perspective and a chance to start anew. But where should you begin? If you're like everyone else, there are probably plenty of places where you'd like to make change. To get started off on the right foot, why not focus on diet? To help you get moving in the right direction this spring, take a look at these three foods to add to the menu for a change and a nice boost in health.
Melons are a great addition to a spring menu. They go with the season and transition us into summer. And they're super healthy. Melons -- whether it's honeydew, watermelon, cantaloupe, or something else -- provides us with tons of water and Vitamin C. And depending on the kind of melon we're consuming, we may be getting other essential nutrients as well. If you're looking to satisfy a sweet tooth this spring, picking out your favorite melons and enjoying to your heart's content may be just the way to do it.
More Leafy Greens
It's always a good time to add leafy greens to your menu. They're full of fiber, protein, iron, Vitamin C, and other important nutrients. They're great for keeping you full, and they're even better for moving digestion. Since it's the start of a new season, go ahead and make this switch to your diet to watch your health improve in a big way.
Fish contains really good oils that can help keep your heart, arteries, and veins healthy. This same oil may also help with joint pain, as it can lubricate these areas of the body and make movement easier. The spring is a good time to throw some fish in the menu. Choose salmon, tuna, mahi mahi, shrimp, or whatever sounds good! It's a nice change of pace, a health booster, and a delicious way to spring into a new season.
New foods are a great way to change up your world with little effort and big benefits. A healthy diet can really get you moving in the right direction from the inside out. Add these foods to your diet this spring, and enjoy the flavor, the change, and the improved health that comes with it.
