Summer is the time to kick back and relax. Unfortunately for many, this means forgetting to take care of our health, whether it be staying on top of eating healthy or exercising. A nutritionist in Suffolk County at Food and Fitness Pro can help you come up with a plan this summer to stay healthy!

How Can I Keep A Healthy Diet During the Summer?

When the days get hot, it is easy to go to for that sugary ice cream cone or that sugary cup of lemonade. There are many alternatives that are healthier and can keep you cool during the hot days. During the summer months, produce is at its prime and it is the perfect time to get fruits and vegetables. Some fruits and veggies that are in their prime during the summer are:

  • Tomatoes
  • Avocadoes
  • Greens
  • Bell Peppers
  • Berries
  • Watermelon

These make the perfect snack on the beach to eat alone or put in your salad! You can also make popsicles out of the fruit as well. 

If you’re going to a barbeque and want to eat meat, go for leaner meats. Healthy options for meat include:

  • Ground turkey
  • Skinless chicken breast

Fish is great for your diet, and summer is also the perfect time to get fresh seafood. Some seafood that can benefit your health include:

  • Salmon
  • Tuna
  • Lobster
  • Steamer Clams 

It’s also extremely important to stay hydrated and drink lots of water during the hot days. In the heat, you can get dehydrated quickly and it is important that you are drinking at least 2-4 liters a day during the summer. 

In addition to diet, staying healthy in the summer also includes staying active. When the temperature gets higher, it gets harder to go outside and stay active. There are many ways to stay active during warm weather. There are ways to stay active indoors such as an indoor gym or indoor recreational center. For the less warm days there ways to have fun outdoors while also staying active such as : 

  • Talking walks in the park
  • Going swimming and a pool or beach 
  •  Hiking 
  • Jump rope
  • Going canoeing/kayaking
