We want you to thrive as Sunday, March 20 approaches. Why, you ask? The answer is obvious: March 20 marks the first day of spring. And, as we all know, spring means socialization. Consuming delicious party foods and plenty of spring cocktails requires you to be healthy, so we wanted to give you a light list of things you can do to stay as healthy as possible in these last few wintry weeks.
If you happened to notice the clickable link directly above this paragraph, you’ll be aware that some seasonal, nutrient-dense winter fruits and vegetables can increase your energy levels. When we speak of seasonal winter produce, we’re talking about plants like beets, carrots, cauliflower, kale, leeks, and rutabaga. These fruits and vegetables contain crucial vitamins and carbs to fuel your body through the harshest of winter days. When you’re properly fueled, you’ll be able to keep yourself active. An active person is doing his or her best to fortify his or her body and ward off sickness.

If you’re looking for a boozy way to cure your cold, try red wine. Don’t want to have red wine at 10 a.m.? (Why not? It’s five o’clock somewhere… ) Experiment with these drinks that can soothe your cold symptoms. If you’re putting good fuel into your body, focusing on vitamins like vitamin C and B12, and avoiding things that can cause illness, we’re certain that you’ll make it to March 20 as healthy and happy as ever.
