Eat a Rainbow

At Sea to Sky Thrivers’ we believe eating nutritious organic fruits and vegetables is the best way you can invest in your health – fueling your body with a broad spectrum of antioxidants, phytonutrients (aka phytochemicals), vitamins, minerals, and fibres. 

Since childhood, we’ve been told to “eat your greens!”, but what about our oranges, whites, browns, reds, purples and blues? As creatures of habit, it’s easy to get stuck in a routine of eating the same types of fruits and vegetables over and over again.

Top Tips For Budget Plant-Based Eating

Plant-based diets can be expensive when they’re not planned well. Though protein is much cheaper, loading all that organic produce into your basket can be disheartening. It makes it hard to resist the temptation to grab that cheap, processed junk that comes frozen in a packet. But think of the cost to your health, and put the pizza pockets down! You’re lucky, friends – the Green Moustache has compiled a list of our top tips to keep you on track without requiring a remortgage/yard-sale/loan shark. Enjoy!

Why We Should Avoid Processed Food

Processed food is any food that undergoes an intentional change before it is consumed. Most foods undergo some type of post-production processing including cooking, freezing, chopping, fortifying and fermenting. Minimally processed foods such as frozen vegetables retain most of their inherent nutritional and physical properties and don’t pose health concerns.  

H20 - Learning to hydrate with food

You’ve probably heard we should be drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day. For some of us, myself included, that can seem like a daunting task. But here’s the secret; you don’t have to drink all that water... you can eat it! Approximately 20% of our daily H2O intake comes from solid foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. There is an abundance of fruit and vegetables that have a high-water content, are refreshing and packed with vitamins, minerals, fibre and protein.
