#SummerRefresh Focus on Nutrition

This week we are starting a new series with Fit Approach called #SummerRefresh. The topic this week is nutrition written by Sara at She Cooks, She Crafts, She Runs.

 

It’s August and Fit Approach has a big initiative this month called the #SummerRefresh.  So we are taking cues from them and helping you follow along with their cool challenges.  If you want to participate please join the Google+ community Living+.

For this first week we are focusing on nutrition.  So I’ve decided to take their challenges and make it easier for you to follow along.  I’ve gone day by day for this week and given you examples to help you make the challenges.

Meatless Monday

  • Salmon:  I love this super simple take on salmon on lemon baked.
  • Crab cakes:  Here’s some healthier versions from Cooking Light
  • Tofu:  This Spicy Garlic Tofu recipe looks pretty yummy for such a typified meal

Take your lunch to work Tuesday

Whatever you made the night before…heat it up!  For example, make a salmon sandwich by putting it between 2 slices of bread with some roasted red pepper and dijon mustard.  The crab cakes, lay one on top of a spinach salad with some baby tomatoes and a splash of balsamic vinegar and EVOO.
You can look in your fridge and grab and go.  It’s funny the different combos you can come up with.  Need some ideas?  Leave a blog comment and I’ll come up with something for you!

What I ate Wednesday

Write down what you eat all day.  It’s funny all the things we don’t even realize we put in our mouths!

Thirsty Thursday

Water is so very important.  Especially this time of year.  The easiest way to stay hydrated that I’ve found is to carry a bottle of water around with me.  It becomes a habit and you find yourself almost addicted to getting a sip whenever your heart desires.
Get tired of plain old water?  Check out my post on Infused waters using natural fruits and herbs to taste up the tasteless!

Paleo Friday

What is Paleo you ask?

Well don’t worry, I didn’t know before this post either!  I have just seen bits and pieces around Pinterest and Facebook.  From what I gather, it’s like a caveman diet, you only eat what the caveman had access to.  Here’s some graphics that help explain.
Make a little better sense?
I even took the liberty of finding some tasty looking recipes for you to try!

Sara is training for her first sprint tri and as a kick-off we have an app download to giveaway. Check out her first day of training here.
