STAY HEALTHY THIS WINTER WITH TERESA CUTTER – THE HEALTHY CHEF
The Healthy Chef Teresa Cutter believes keeping fit and healthy during the cold winter months is a simple combination of the right food and exercise.
The Perth-born chef, nutritionist and accredited personal trainer will be joining Commando Steve (aka Steve Willis) at the Fitness Show WA, which runs in Perth from the 16 – 17th August at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
When asked about what she does to keep the winter blues at bay, Teresa said it’s all about staying on top of what we put into our bodies. “During the colder months we can get run-down, which means our immune system get’s a little tired,” tells Cutter.
She continues, “I make a conscious effort to include immune boosting foods into my diet – I love my super C immune boosting smoothie made from carrot, orange, ginger and turmeric.”
“I also start every morning with 2 glasses of water with a little lemon juice and 1 glass of wheatgrass juice. This helps my body hydrate and alkalinize for the day ahead, and I always follow it with a morning walk, regardless of the weather”.
“Learn how to read your body and how it feels. Don’t trash yourself every time when you’re training and make sure you drink lots of water and get adequate hydration. I love indoor exercises such as Yoga and Pilates which really stretch and strengthen the body.”
“I also love to do a little kickboxing, which revs up my metabolism,” Teresa said.
Known for her awesome healthy recipes on her website – thehealthychef.com – Teresa’s nutrition tips for winter are simple:
Eat seasonally – foods that are grown and picked when they naturally should be, contain just the right balance of flavours and nutrients to taste absolutely delicious;
Support your immune system – by eating fresh plant based foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and quality protein such as eggs and fish;
Include anti-inflammatory recipes in your diet – ingredients such as ginger and turmeric are great to add to meals;
Always stock up on green super foods – kale, spinach, leafy greens and wheatgrass help to increase alkalinity and detoxification in your body to promote healing;
Keep hydrated – take a water bottle with you and fill it up when you can. Keeping hydration levels up is the simplest thing you can do to ensure you stay healthy.
Teresa will be presenting on the Main Stage at the Fitness Show WA, providing further nutritional tips and healthy cooking advice.
She will also be displaying her range of functional food products, Natural Immune Boosters, Naked Chocolat and pure protein powders at The Healthy Chef stand throughout the show in the healthy living zone.
Nutritional experts will be on hand throughout the weekend to provide the newest and up-to-date advice on nutrition and healthy eating programs to help achieve the best fitness levels possible.
