Stay Active at Home–No Gym Required

Share article Stay Active at Home–No Gym Required on:

Workout at homeNo gym equipment? No problem. Put common household items to use and get moving with a simple fitness routine. This full-body routine will take 20-30 minutes and can be modified depending on your fitness level and experience. The endorphins released during physical activity can naturally boost your mood, increase your immunity and contribute to your general well-being.

What You’ll Need:

  • Weights (Cans, water bottles, water jugs or textbooks.)
  • A sturdy chair
  • Yoga mat, beach towel or carpet

Your Routine

Complete three sets of 10 repetitions for each exercise. Rest for 30-60 seconds between sets. Remember to stay hydrated by sipping water throughout the routine and don’t forget to warm up! Begin by walking in place and stretching for at least five minutes.

Exercise 1: Weighted Squats

Beginners: do not use weights. Use a sturdy chair for stability if needed.


  1. Begin by standing with feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. With a straight back, bend knees to lower down into a seated position.
  3. Keep your weight in your heels as you stand up and return to the starting position.

Exercise 2: Incline Push-ups

The higher the incline, the easier this exercise will be. Beginners: consider using a kitchen counter or the back of a couch instead of a chair.


  1. Place your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart on the seat of the chair.
  2. Walk your feet backwards until your body is at a 45-degree angle.
  3. Bend your arms and gently lower your body as close to the chair as possible.
  4. Straighten your arms to return to the starting position.

Exercise 3: Abdominal Crunch with Chair

Use a yoga mat or carpet to protect your back during this exercise.


  1. Position the chair in front of your body.
  2. While lying on your back, lift your legs to a 90-degree angle. Legs will rest on the seat of the chair.
  3. Place hands behind your head to cradle your neck. While keeping legs stationary, engage your abdominal muscles to slowly lift your shoulders off the floor.
  4. Lower your shoulders back to the floor to return to the starting position.

Exercise 4: Triceps Dips

Intermediate-advanced groups: Increase the intensity of this exercise by lifting one leg parallel to the floor, alternating legs between sets.


  1. Position the chair a few inches behind your body.
  2. With the chair behind you, place your palms on the edge of the chair with fingers pointing to the floor. Rest your weight on your hands and lower your body until thighs are parallel to the floor.
  3. Bend your elbows to lower your hips as close to the floor as possible.
  4. Engage triceps to push back up to the starting position.

Exercise 5: Split Squat with Chair

Intermediate-advanced groups: Increase the intensity of this exercise by including weight. Hold the weighted item to your chest as you perform each rep.


  1. Stand roughly two feet in front of the chair with your feet hip-distance apart.
  2. Place right foot on the chair behind you, with toes positioned securely on the seat of the chair.
  3. Looking straight ahead, bend your left knee and lower your body down towards the floor. Aim for your left thigh to be parallel to the ground.
  4. Return to the starting position by pushing up on your left leg.
  5. Repeat the steps above for three sets of 10 reps with your right leg on the chair. Switch legs and repeat on the other side.
Don’t forget to stretch and cool down after your workout!

Freezing Fresh Foods the Right Way

Share article Freezing Fresh Foods the Right Way on:

Frozen Fruit in BagWe’re all spending more time at home these days, so why not spend some of it learning to extend the life of your produce? Freezing food is one of the best ways to combat food waste and allows you to have plenty of food on hand for an extended period of time.

What You’ll Need

  • Veggies and fruit of choice
  • A pot of water
  • Salt
  • An ice bath (a bowl or bucket of water with ice in it)
  • Colander
  • Large sheet pan
  • Freezer bags or resealable plastic containers
  • Freezer set to 0˚ F or colder
  • Freezing Fresh Produce

    The best way to freeze fresh vegetables is to blanch them first. Blanching is a simple cooking technique that prepares the food to preserve freshness. First, you want to prepare the food as you would if you were getting ready to eat it (e.g. trim stems from green beans, cut cauliflower or broccoli into florets, peel and slice carrots and so on). Next, boil a pot of water and just before adding the vegetables, add a couple of teaspoons of salt to the water. Salt helps to maintain color and improve flavor, but it may be omitted if you wish. Add the vegetables to the pot in small batches so that the water continues to boil and cook them for a minute or two. Using a colander, immediately drain and transfer the vegetables to an ice-water bath to halt the cooking process. After draining, spread them out onto a large sheet pan to dry thoroughly (wet veggies will develop frost), spread onto a sheet pan, freeze, then transfer to freezer bags and store in your freezer. Freezing fruits is similar, but you can skip the blanching step.

    Freezing Fresh Herbs

    You can freeze fresh herbs by chopping them, mixing them with a small amount of water or olive oil and then freezing the mixture in ice cube trays. Once frozen, transfer the cubes to freezer bags for storage.

Need spring cleaning inspiration?

These homemade natural cleaners are created with ingredients from Sprouts that are natural and chemical-free. And the best part is, you may already have some of the items in your home.

Chemical-free Stainless-steel Cleaner by Fresh Mommy Blog

This DIY glass and stainless steel cleaner is streak-free with the addition of a simple surprise ingredient. It’s natural, chemical-free and easy to make with items you probably already have around the house!

Ingredients:DIY Natural Cleaners: Stainless-steel cleaner with at-home ingredients

  • Glass bottle in a 16 oz. size at least (stainless steel is also safe.)
  • Spray top
  • 1 cup of Distilled water
  • ½ cup Alcohol
  • ½ cup Sprouts White Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Corn starch
  • 6 drops Pure orange essential oil (optional)
  • 6 drops Pure lemon essential oil (optional)


  1. Using a funnel, add ½ cup of vinegar to the glass bottle.
  2. Add ½ cup rubbing alcohol. (Optional: remove from recipe or replace with vodka.)
  3. Pour 1 tablespoon cornstarch in through the funnel.
  4. Top with 1 cup distilled water. This will also help to get the rest of the cornstarch out of the funnel.
  5. Optional: add 10–12 drops of essential oil for extra disinfecting power and scent.
  6. Assemble spray top on the bottle and shake well before each use.

Non-toxic Toilet Bowl Cleaner by Root + Revel

Looking for a safe and non-toxic way to clean your bathroom? This DIY Toilet Cleaner recipe is a natural and effective way to clean and deodorize your toilet. To make fizzy homemade toilet bombs, pods or tablets, all you need is five natural ingredients for a deep cleaning you won’t believe (no scrubbing required)!


  • 1 cup Sprouts Baking Soda
  • 1/4 cup Citric acid
  • 1 Tbsp. Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds
  • 1 tsp. Hydrogen peroxide
  • 25 drops Essential oils (I recommend peppermint)

diy toilet cleanerInstructions:

  1. In a large glass bowl, whisk baking soda and citric acid together until blended.
  2. Very slowly, add Sal Suds, hydrogen peroxide and essential oils, mixing slowly as you go to ensure you don’t activate the dry ingredients. The mixture should be dry enough that you can mold it into balls, but wet enough that it doesn’t fall apart.
  3. Fill a silicone mold with cleaning mixture, or you can form small balls (about the size of golf balls) with your hands and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper to avoid sticking.
  4. Allow the toilet bombs to air dry about 6–8 hours or overnight.
  5. Transfer to a glass jar and store in the bathroom.
Notes: I place these in the bowl of my toilet every 5–10 flushes to keep the toilet bowl clean and smelling great!  

Refrigerator Cleaner with At-home Ingredients by Recipes to Nourish

It’s so easy to make your own DIY refrigerator cleaner with three common ingredients. This lemon-herb vinegar mixture is money-saving, chemical-free and very effective for cleaning.

Ingredients:Natural fridge cleaner

To Make the Lemon-Herb Vinegar
  • 4 cups Sprouts Organic Distilled White Vinegar
  • 5 Lemon peels – yellow rind and white pith only, not the inside flesh
  • 1 lg. sprig Fresh rosemary or thyme
  • 1 quart or ½ gallon Mason jar with lid
To Make the Refrigerator Cleaner
  • 1 cup Lemon-herb vinegar
  • 1 cup Water, very hot
  • 1 Dish sponge or cloth rag
  • 1 Spray bottle – preferably glass OR large glass bowl


To Make the Lemon-Herb Vinegar
  1. Add the lemon peels and rosemary or thyme to a ½ gallon (8-cup) Mason jar.
  2. Pour 4 cups of vinegar over the lemon peels and herbs, making sure they are covered and submerged.
  3. Cover with a lid and let sit on the counter, out of direct sunlight, for 1 week or up to 2 weeks.
  4. Strain the lemon-herb vinegar through a fine-mesh strainer into a quart (4-cup) Mason jar.
To Clean the Refrigerator
  1. Add the lemon-herb vinegar and hot water to a spray bottle or a large glass bowl.
  2. If using a spray bottle, spray the mixture onto all refrigerator surfaces like the walls, drawers and shelves and use a dish sponge or cloth rag to wipe down and clean the surfaces.
  3. If using a glass bowl, soak and ring out a dish sponge or cloth rag in the lemon-herb vinegar water solution and wipe down and clean all of the refrigerator surfaces.
  4. Repeat steps as needed until the inside of the refrigerator is clean.
  • Advance preparation is required.
  • Yield: 1-quart lemon-herb vinegar
  • Storage: Can be stored in a covered glass container for up to a year.
  • Uses: Save leftover mixture for weekly refrigerator spot-treatment maintenance or for monthly deep-cleaning. Alternatively, you can add the remaining lemon-herb vinegar to a spray bottle with filtered water using a 1:1 ratio and use as an all-purpose natural cleaner for cleaning most surfaces. [Note: Vinegar is known to kill up to 80 percent of bacteria, mold and most germs.]
  • Tip: If you have some stubborn spills in your refrigerator you can sprinkle a little baking soda over the stubborn spill and do a light spray of the cleaning mixture, then put a little elbow grease into it. Baking soda is one of the best natural cleaners when you need something a bit more abrasive.

How to Clean Your Makeup Brush without Harsh Chemicals by Root + Revel

Say goodbye to toxic chemicals and expensive store-bought products. For this DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner, you only need three ingredients to create an easy and effective homemade solution.

women's hand cleaning makeup brushesIngredients:

  • 1 oz. Sprouts Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 oz. Lavender castile soap
  • 6 drops Organic tea tree oil


  1. In a large glass bowl, combine all 3 ingredients and stir to combine.
  2. Swirl your makeup brushes in the cleaning solution until thoroughly coated.
  3. In a second glass or bowl filled with clean water, swirl the coated brush until rinsed through. (You can go back and forth between the cleaning solution and the water as many times as you need to until the brush is completely clean and all color is gone. Sometimes it helps to rinse under the faucet, as well.)
  4. When you’re done, simply pat the brush on a clean microfiber cloth and lay flat to dry. (I like to let my brushes dry overnight, but it usually takes about 6–8 hours to dry naturally.)

Immune Boosting Tips

Seasonal Wellness Items

Boost your immune system, naturally!

Boost your immune system naturally and feel your best with vitamins, supplements and homeopathic remedies from Sprouts! Our friendly and knowledgeable vitamin team members are happy to guide you through the aisles to help you stay well this season.

Keep Your Hands Clean

One of the best ways to reduce your chances of spreading germs is to simply keep your hands clean and minimize touching your face. You might think this is a no-brainer, but washing your hands properly can make a big difference. Opt for natural soaps and hand sanitizers instead of harsh, anti-bacterial soaps.

Fill Nutritional Gaps

Some say that eating a proper diet is all you need to get your recommended daily vitamins, minerals and nutrients for optimal health. But despite our best efforts, we often miss our nutritional mark by eating foods that lack many key nutrients. The good news? A simple, daily regimen of incorporating multivitamins, omega-rich oils, probiotics and superfoods can help bridge the nutritional gaps where your diet may fall short. Check out the Sprouts Essential 4 Supplements to kick-start your immunity!

Herbal Defense

It’s all too easy to forget the importance of strengthening the body’s defenses before illness strikes. While tending to your immune system at any time never hurts, you will thank yourself for doing it sooner rather than later. Echinacea is a great place to start! Studies show it can support your immune function by helping to stimulate white blood cells. In addition to Echinacea, adaptogens are a simple way to support your body. This special group of plants can help balance, protect and restore the body from daily stressors.

Elderberry Power

Elderberries are a concentrated source of two antioxidants: quercetin and anthocyanin. These powerful antioxidants enhance the body’s immune response by increasing the production of cytokines. Cytokines are the immune system’s messengers, helping to regulate the body’s response to disease, inflammation and infection. The high antioxidant capacity in elderberries neutralizes harmful, free-radicals and helps support the body’s immunity against illness and disease. Elderberries are also an excellent source of vitamins A and C. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant, which is part of what makes it a great addition to your immune-boosting arsenal.

Homeopathic Remedies

Homeopathic tinctures and supplements are a natural way to stay well year-round. Try incorporating good-for-you minerals like zinc and magnesium, or utilizing Boiron Oscillococcinum at the onset of symptoms. Not sure where to start? Shop for these homeopathic brands to keep on hand:
  • Genexa Homeopathic
  • Nature’s Way Umcka
  • Boiron

Oil of Oregano

Oil of Oregano is a powerful, natural remedy that can help you prepare in advance to fight off symptoms. Made from the Oregano plant, it contains Thymol, a natural anti-septic and Beta-Caryophyllene, which can help reduce inflammation. Simply use a few drops in your hand soap for anti-microbial properties, convenient capsules or 2-3 liquid drops under your tongue for daily defense.
