Fresh Ideas to Spring Clean Your Diet

 

If you haven’t gone to the beach already, you certainly will be in the next few weeks! It’s time to kick yourself into high gear and shed the holiday weight before swimsuit season. The good news is, you don’t need a crash diet to shed some weight. Fresh food, moderate exercise and a few food swaps will get the job done. Take a look at the Palm Valley Fish Camp team’s top clean eating tips:

4 Seasonal Foods to Kickstart Weightloss

Asparagus

Low-fat, high-fiber is the name of the game when it comes to weight loss. Thankfully, one of our favorite veggies satisfies both of these categories. There’s no limit to the different ways you can cook asparagus, but the easiest and healthiest is simply salt, pepper and olive oil.

Asparagus takes it one step further with its substantial content of vitamin B, vitamin C and iron. All of those benefits make asparagus a go-to appetizer or side dish when you’re trying to lose weight.  

Strawberries

You probably eat strawberries even when you’re not trying to lose weight! Head to your local grocery store between April and June for peak strawberry season. Strawberries are a great healthy dessert option or a perfect addition to an arugula salad. A single serving has nearly 3.5 grams of fiber and a full daily serving of vitamin C. Win, win. If possible, try to pick up a carton at your local farmer’s market to ensure freshness.

Collard Greens

You know we love our collards at The Fish Camp! We serve ours with Buttermilk Pan Fried Chicken, Grits and Tasso Ham Gravy. Stop by Palm Valley Fish Camp or make some at home for the vitamin K, vitamin A, calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium. Almost too many benefits to list!

If you decide to prepare collard greens at home, serve them with a fresh piece of grilled salmon for an all-around healthy meal.

Artichokes

Best eaten when in-season between March and May, artichokes are a great source of fiber and a low-calorie snacking option. Additionally, they pack plenty of iron, potassium, vitamin C and magnesium.

We know you’re supposed to be cutting calories, but it’s so tempting to throw the artichokes into a crowd-pleasing spinach and artichoke dip. Sorry, we had to say it! If you’re not much of a home chef, stop by Palm Valley Fish Camp for a serving of Crispy Artichoke Hearts. Healthy never tasted so good.
