Filed under: Health — creative @ 11:56 am

Summer is here and so are the loads of fresh fruits and vegetables. It is the best time of the year to eat healthy. However, with all the BBQ’s and parties one can be easily distracted from a healthy eating plan. Here are some tips on how to make the best of summer for the best of health.

1. Drink plenty of water- You need plenty of fluid to stay hydrated during the hot months, avoid sodas which contain a lot of sugar. Instead, have water, watermelon and cucumber to stay cool and hydrated.

2. Ice cream – summer will not be complete without ice cream. Try a fruit sorbet or frozen yoghurt instead of the high fat, high sugar ice cream.

3. If you are having a BBQ , use lean cuts of meat and use less fat and salt, instead use spices, and herbs to add flavor. Have plenty of salads with fresh ingredients and have fresh fruits for dessert.

4. Always have breakfast and have a light dinner.

5. Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Whenever possible have the vegetables raw and have a range of colors veggies on the plate.
