Summer Healthy Eating Tips

Summer Healthy Eating Tips

Welcome to summer vacation! It's time for picnics, backyard cookouts and a schedule full of summer fun. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy those seasonal fruits and veggies that we don't get during winter. Warmer weather means it's time to eat healthy, light and hydrating foods.

Here are our tips for eating and staying healthy this summer:

1. Break out the barbecue

Think beyond your traditional burgers and hot dogs. A barbecue brings a ton of variety to your summer menu, without all the heat the comes from cooking inside. Invest in some good barbecue accessories like skewers and tongs that make cooking your food even easier.
