Winter Hiking In Wisconsin Is A Blast! 
 

We have so many places to go and explore! As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, it’s easy to lose motivation to get outside. It’s not as simple to head outdoors in winter as it is in the warmer months when you can just throw on your shoes and hit the trail. But, with a shift in your mindset and these winter hiking tips, hiking in the winter is actually really fun. It’s a great way to stay active and healthy during the darker months when you might feel inclined to hunker down in front of the tv. Not only will staying active all year round provide physical benefits but spending time outside in winter can also boost your mood and improve mental health. So, if you are feeling those winter blues, hiking might just help you combat cabin fever! So, grab your yak tracks, snowshoes or cross-country skis and let’s go!

As a Wellness Specialist and Coach, I am not promoting protein supplements nor am I promoting fast food, but I am promoting protein, the right protein. Protein is your ally in your pursuit of REAL well-being and nutrition. Protein is also a critical part of the processes that fuel your energy and carry oxygen throughout your body in your blood. It also helps make antibodies that fight off infections and illnesses and helps keep cells healthy and create new ones. The best protein choices for your health and your waistline include shellfish, fish, skinless poultry, nuts, peanut or other nut butters, seeds, whole soy foods, low-fat or skim dairy products, omega-3 eggs, and beans/legumes.

Sugar has a bittersweet reputation when it comes to health. Sugar occurs naturally in all foods that contain carbohydrates, such as fruits and vegetables, grains, and dairy. Consuming whole foods that contain natural sugar is okay. Plant foods also have high amounts of fiber, essential minerals, and antioxidants, and dairy foods contain protein and calcium. But too much is not good, review the video and see why.
