Summer is a busy time of the year — perhaps even more so than the holidays. The kids are out of school and the beach or pool beckons you to enjoy its cooling benefits. It can be easy to let your diet slip and fall into some unhealthy eating habits. Use the tips below to incorporate some healthy superfoods into your summer diet.
Start the Morning Off Right
Don’t skimp on your nutrition first thing in the morning. Whip up a quick and nutritious smoothie with lots of blueberries, strawberries and bananas. Add in your favorite milk and a generous dollop of Greek yogurt, whirl until smooth and you have a delicious smoothie packed with superfood nutrition.
Make Lunch Count
Rev up your energy levels so you can keep going all day long by opting for a filling salad. Not just any greens will do though, so make sure to pile on the spinach and kale for their superfood powers. Salads don’t always have to be savory either. Toss on a few handfuls of berries for a deliciously sweet and savory lunch that’s tasty and nutritious.
Do Dinner Right
Stir fries are the perfect way to stay away from the allure of eating out and processed foods without heating up the kitchen. After you’ve finished stir frying your favorite meat, rice and veggies, push the food to the side of the pan. Quickly scramble a few eggs thoroughly before mixing them into the rest of your meal. They are the perfect protein boost to add to veggie stir fries. Add an avocado salad and you have double the superfood power.
Using the above as a springboard, do you have any other favorite ways to add superfoods to your diet? Chime in with your ideas!
