Simple Ways to Improve Your Nutrition During the Summer

Eating healthy is easy! During the summer months, fresh produce grows in abundance. This benefits you because eating a well-balanced diet rich in fruits and veggies can help you stay healthy.

Fresh lemonade, juices, fruit and lots of water have already become a part of summer diets to keep the body naturally cool. However, liquids are not the only solution to beating heat and keeping the body hydrated.

Certain foods also help in keeping the body fit and cool during the hot months!

Here are some of our top tips:

1. Eat Regularly

The key is eating appropriately depending on your lifestyle and what your body needs. For example, more active individuals should consider a diet that includes high levels of protein and carbohydrates to help build muscles and gain energy during workouts. A healthy eating plan also includes monitoring your snacking—replace cookies, pastries, and cakes with healthier options like fruit, nuts, and low-fat yoghurts.

2. Drink more fluids

The summer heat can cause the body to sweat more. Paying close attention to hydration can help keep the body from getting overheated, keep you energised, and functioning properly.

3. Eat more green vegetables

Green vegetables are a must-have in summers. Leafy vegetables like lettuce, amaranth, spinach, cabbage, kale are natural coolants and must be a part of the diet in the form of salads or vegetables.

4. Be Smart About Cold Treat Choices

To satisfy your sweet tooth and not feel guilty about it, look for some healthier alternatives to the typica summer treats. Buy low-fat versions of fat-free and sugar-free ice cream or try a sugar-free sorbet, which is a lower-calorie, refreshing alternative!

5. Downsize your meal

It takes longer for the stomach to digest food plus the hot weather does not allow you to load up on too many foods. It is good to have lighter meals rather than having heavy ones, especially at night.
