It’s hard I know, to eat healthy every single day, but if we put our best foot forward, we can concur!! Here is an awesome and easy-to-prepare green salad. Here’s to Healthy Living ~ Healthy Eating Made Simple.
Healthy Living ~ Healthy Eating Made Simple
In the summer months, I like to keep things simple in the kitchen. It gets really hot here in north Texas and I certainly don’t want to make it worse by turning on the oven. So keeping with our healthy lifestyle, my husband and I prepare lots of simple salads with fresh vegetables and fruits. He will also grill outdoors as much as possible. My motto is healthy living healthy eating…and making it simple is a bonus!!
Last night for dinner I made this yummy nutritious spinach and strawberry salad to go along with fresh grilled meat my husband made. It’s such a simple way to make sure my family gets the healthy nutrition that we strive for, plus it’s one of two leafy greens my 6-year-old will eat. Getting my child to eat healthy is such a major thing, so I prefer to fix foods I know he will eat. So we have fresh spinach a lot!!
Spinach Strawberry Salad
- a big bowl of spinach
- 10 strawberries (sliced)
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup feta cheese
- handful walnuts
Add spinach to large bowl, add sliced strawberries, sprinkle feta cheese and top with walnuts! Simple, uh?
Speaking of spinach…I personally have been eating fresh spinach for quite some time now and I know the nutritional value it has, but I learn a little more about this super leafy green in Sam’s Club’s online magazine, Healthy Living Made Simple (HLMS). Have you a chance to read it? It’s one of my go to places for all my family’s health and wellness needs. I like reading its nutritional information which I can put to use in my daily life. HLMS has named spinach as its spotlight superfood for the months of July and August and has an article on its nutritional benefits, its vitamin count for 1 cup size, as well as a few healthy recipes. It made me fall in love with fresh spinach all over again. I truly can (and do) eat spinach by the handfuls when I want/need something to munch on. Be sure to check out this wonderful magazine at HLMS.com. This online magazine is just one of the many benefits of Sam’s Club.
Not only can you read articles on health and wellness, but you’ll also find great information about baby, lifestyle, fitness, recipes and trending articles, plus more. I particular like the article on Cortisol: The stress hormone, which is why I believe I develop thyroid issues, but that’s another story. Stress can play havoc on our bodies, but do you really know why we get it? This article explains it. I’m almost positive you’ll find HLMS.com to be the perfect online magazine for all your health and wellness needs.
Shopping in Bulk at Sam’s Club
The Sam’s Club we go to in Denton, TX always has the freshest produce, and plenty of fresh and frozen meats to choose from, plus the best salmon I’ve ever had. We look forward to shopping there and my husband & son thoroughly enjoy taste testing the food samples. You can find everything you need in bulk, and as you know, buying in bulk saves you money. There’s only three of us, but because we eat at home most of the time when we buy in bulk we freeze what we won’t eat in the next week.
It’s truly easy to shop for healthy items in bulk at Sam’s Club because they know it’s important to their members, so they want to deliver what their members shop for on a daily basis.
Along with healthy produce and foods, Sam’s Club offers many other health and wellness benefits to their members, one being free health screening at select clubs on the second Saturday of every month. Check with your local Sam’s Club to see if they offer this service.
