Beat the heat and feel your best with these delicious and doable tips for having a healthy and fun-filled summer!
With seasonal heat, summer vacations and various outdoor activities, it’s no wonder so many people struggle to stay healthy during warmer weather.
Jam-packed with nutrients, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, other berries, and cherries are the best options when it comes to sweet fruits as they’re relatively low in sugar and high in antioxidants.
In fact, berries are one of the body's greatest allies in the fight against inflammation, aging and illness. In addition to fiber and vitamin C, the antioxidants in berries support weight loss, blood sugar levels, brain function, heart health, eye health, skin health, digestion, detoxification, and the nervous system.
Whether vacationing at the beach, hiking with friends or walking the dog, you’ll want to know how you can soak up enough sun to get a healthy dose of vitamin D, without burning or damaging your skin.
There’s no need to shun the sun or cover yourself with sunblock from head to toe every time you leave the house. In fact, it’s better that you don’t. About one-fourth of Americans have borderline low levels of vitamin D. By learning these sun smart tips, you can benefit your body and get a peachy golden tan.
Famed for their delicious taste and creamy texture, most people don’t realize just how beneficial avocados can be for helping you achieve that summer beach body.
In fact, avocados are among the most nutrient-dense fruits, providing an excellent source of vitamin E, B vitamins, fiber, and potassium. Bananas are often praised for having a high potassium content, but one avocado actually contains three times more potassium than two bananas! For an excellent electrolyte replacement, enjoy an avocado sprinkled with sea salt.
