For many of us, winter can be a time in which healthy eating habits are put on the back burner. Now that warmer weather has arrived, and summer break is fast approaching, there’s no better time that now to make some changes and spring into a healthier lifestyle.

 

From creating well balanced meals and smart snacking, to making sure you’re getting enough exercise making small changes can help us gain a little more control of healthy eating habits.

 

Summer means time more family time for vacations, road trips, and fun outings. With so much to see and do, how can families make sure they’re sticking to healthy eating habits at home and on the go?

 

Below are some quick tips to get started:

 

  • Healthy Choices – Making healthy meal choices can be easy whether cooking at home or eating. Choose restaurants that serve well balanced whole foods on their menus.

 

  • Smart Snacking Solutions – Always have a variety of snacks on hand including nuts, sliced fruit and individually wrapped bites that you can stick in your bag and carry on the go

  • Seasonal = Flavorful – Eating seasonal is the only way to go. Fruits, vegetables and herbs taste their best when eaten at the peak of ripeness. They are more satisfying and therefore you eat a more moderate portion. Forget asparagus in February and watermelon in December- follow the seasons to eat smarter and better!

 

  • Keep It Moving – Regardless if how busy you are, try to incorporate some exercise into your daily routine – whether it’s an exercise app, a new work out video or simply walking around the block, it’s important to stay active.
