A HEALTH AND FITNESS PLAN FOR AN AWESOME SPRING As the weather gets warmer and spring begins, most of us are ramping up our fitness levels. My family is no exception. My daughter and I went skiing recently, and she had her first skiing lesson. As those of you who saw her on Instagram know, she had a blast. I’m trying to increase my activity as it warms up outside as well. Of course, with the beauty of the outdoors comes all the potential allergens. As more plants begin to bloom next month, it’s a good time to start boosting your autoimmune system. Instead of waiting for allergy season to hit, start now. One food you can easily incorporate into your diet is unfiltered, unprocessed local honey.

(Note: Honey should not be fed to children under the age of 1 because of the risk of toxin poisoning.) local honey contains the same allergens as the plants that are Nutrition is a big part of keeping your body healthy.

one diet that works for everyone, but sticking to natural, unprocessed foods in general is a great place to start.

As you’re ramping up your activity levels — whether it’s hitting the trails for a run or getting back on your mountain bike — make sure you ease into it. Don’t expect to jump back in and pick up right where you left off in the fall. Give your body time to get back in shape. I’m a big proponent of taking it slow. When you’re cycling or running, start with a smaller mileage than you left off with last fall. If you feel sore, take a rest day, make time to stretch, and get adjusted. Speaking of getting adjusted, I know all my weekend warriors out there look forward to their super fun, active weekends. That’s why I’m so excited to announce that starting
