Winter Crops

Winter Vegetablescauliflower

Winter yields crops of delicious vegetables that cost less than those in the supermarket. However, you must plant accordingly to avoid the freezing points that will ruin your garden. If you have a late maturing crop, it’ll take roughly 90 days to grow; a mid season crop would take 60; and an early maturing crop would take 30 days.

Cauliflower- May be grown and harvested all year, however is best in the fall through spring months

Sprouting Broccoli- Can be grown year round, but like most calciferous vegetables, it tastes best in cool weather

Parsnips- They look like a white carrot and have a nutty taste

Celery- It’s best in the fall with harvest continuing through winter and the warmer weather

Brussels Sprouts- They grow on a stalk and will last longer compared to when the stalk is cut

Ask Coach Jackie: Does eating at night cause weight gain?

Ask Coach Jackie: Does eating at night cause weight gain?

Answer: Many people believe their metabolism plummets later in the day, which is why we often overeat nutritionally corrupt foods. But a calorie is a calorie no matter when you eat it. As long as you don’t take in more calories than you burn in a day, you won’t gain weight. Overeating at 9 p.m. is essentially no worse than overeating at 9 a.m.

If you workout in the evening, eating at night is a must. You have to eat a well-balanced meal to encourage recovery no matter how late it is. As long as you don’t gorge, you’re not in danger of gaining weight. But if you routinely eat more than you should at night, you’re going to sabotage your efforts.
