Electricious Summer Part 4: NOURISHon Aug 30, 2016
We’re rounding out the end of summer with our last and most important installment—Nourish. The end of summer means it’s time to get back into your normal routine. But your normal routine doesn’t mean you have to get lax on nutrition just because your beach days are coming to a close. Instead, we want to help you stay on track with some info on the benefits of keeping your body energized with the right kind of fuel.
An Organic Start
The meaning of nourishment varies for everyone, but personally, we love a fresh perspective. Organic can be a scary word for people who aren’t familiar with it, but it truly just means getting the best out of your ingredients. When you eat organic, it means you’re eating food that retains a lot more vitamins and nutrients from pesticide-free soil, as opposed to its chemically grown counterparts. You’re also avoiding the hormones that get pumped into fruits and veggies in order to make them bigger. But! The best reason to eat organic is because, honestly, it just tastes better.
Eating well doesn’t mean you have to stay in and prepare a meal each night; you can go out to any number of Jacksonville restaurants to enjoy organic and locally sourced grub. Dining out supports your local farming community while providing you with a delicious dinner and none of the dishes. Black Sheep is one of our local favorites, not just for the food, but also for the tremendous view. Located in one of the best parts of town, Black Sheep offers a trendy selection of locally grown entrees and craft cocktails. Keeping yourself nourished with a rooftop view of the city isn’t the worst thing in the world by any means.
Feast Your Eyes
Getting in on the latest food trends is great for becoming a little more creative in the kitchen. Magazines like Edible Northeast Florida (available right here in our shop) keep you in the know for all things food. This mag is full of delicious recipes and plenty of gardening how-tos, ensuring you’re getting the most out of your food and your garden. Balance out their lovely little food recipes with a crafty cocktail recipe for the ultimate treat, and stay well-nourished across the board.
