Summer Healthy Eating Tips
Use these summer healthy eating tips to help you on your weight loss journey or simply to maintain all the progress you’ve made so far!
Eat local, fresh fruits and veggies
Many fruits and veggies are in season during the summer months. Fresh, local produce is packed with healthy nutrients that your body craves!
Make sure you drink enough water
Don’t let the heat get you down. Make sure to drink enough water, especially when you are out and about. Try taking a reusable bottle of water with you wherever you go to ensure you don’t get behind on your water consumption!
Eat small, lighter meals
We tend to be much more active during the summer months. To give your digestion a break, aim to eat smaller and lighter meals spread out throughout the day. This way you will have much more energy and won’t feel bloated and weighed down!
When you have a busy day ahead with the family, make sure to pack a snack with you so if you get hungry in between meals, you always have a healthy option available. Try packing a bag of mixed, unsalted nuts or some fruit for a healthy snack option when you really need it!
Choose healthy BBQ options
Everyone loves to barbecue in the summer! Make sure you are choosing healthier options, like grilled chicken breast, veggies or even a turkey burger (hold the bun).
Make more smoothies
The summer is a great season to take advantage of all the in-season fruits and veggies to make delicious, healthy smoothies. Smoothies are a great way to start your day or the perfect midday pick-me-up. Make sure to add a high-quality protein, like Purely Inspired® Organic Protein, to give your healthy smoothie a high-protein kick!
