Reset Your Clocks—Reset Your Life!

This Saturday night (well, officially 2:00 am this Sunday morning) is time to once again set our clocks forward by 1 hour to kick off Daylight Saving Time. Although some might find it a drag to lose an hour of sleep on Saturday night, I’ve always felt this inconvenience a small price to pay for having more sun to enjoy when you get home from work in the evenings! With spring just around the corner bringing warmer temps and more sunshine to enjoy, this is also a great time to cast aside bad habits we may have fallen into during the dark days of winter.

Although we don’t suffer as much as folks back East during the colder months of the year, statistics show that many Americans tend to cocoon in the winter, holing up indoors and putting on weight lounging—and eating—around the house. Starting next week, why not use the extra hour of daylight to get outdoors after work to start taking brisk walks, or get the bike tuned up and get out there for some evening rides? The Center for Disease Control tells us to get at least 2 ½ hours of exercise per week. So pick an exercise you like and get to it. Doing so can help in losing weight, reducing blood pressure, and cutting the risk for cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.

Spring is also a great time to get our eating habits back in shape. Needless to say, California Chef can help you ensure that you’re getting the right combination of lean proteins, healthy carbs, and proper fats that good health requires. But if you’re out of our delivery area and doing things on your own, be sure to eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains every day. Also remember to limit your intake of food and drinks that are high in calories, sugar, salt, fats, or alcohol. Feel free to look through some of our past blogs to get some great ideas for tasty, healthy treats that are sure to please the palate in guilt-free style!

I wish you all the best in your spring transition, and please let me know what you’re most looking forward to this time of year—and if there’s anything in particular food- or health-wise you’d like to read more about in upcoming blogs this season. You can contact me at denise@californiachef.com
