Groundhog’s Day

No, not the movie. Or is it?

As we all know by now, the groundhog didn’t see it’s shadow this week, and we know what that means. Spring is on the way! While you may not be able to classify the months of November through February in Texas as winter, it does get a little colder than we’re use to around here. But now that spring is right around the corner, its the perfect time in Texas to get out and about.

With the season changing, so changes our lifestyle. We’ve got a few tips to help you transition from winter into spring in Texas.

  • Unpack the sunscreen! You might not have had it packed it up, but if you stayed in doors more during the winter, you’re going to want to make sure that your skin is protected. Always make sure your skin is protected!
  • You’ve probably been a little more bundled up that usual, so it’s time to pack up some of those sweaters and get out your flip flops! Okay, it’s safe to assume you’ve probably been wearing your flip flops all winter. That’s just how it is in Texas! Its probably a good idea to keep light sweaters around; it always gets extra cold inside buildings to make up for the heat outside.
  • Spring veggies will soon be in season, and it’s important to keep your body healthy. It’s natural for us to want to keep warm in the cooler months, so we tend to eat heavy meals like Shepard’s Pie and lasagna. Now, it’s time to offset all that heavy eating with good eating! And good eating doesn’t have to be awful. There are several healthy recipes out there that you’ll actually like, and want to have over again. Its also a good time to start having fun and testing out new spices in the kitchen.

Be adventurous! Spring is a time that is all about new life. Put some new life into the kitchen and into your life during this new season.
