In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk to Jessica DeLuise, MHS, PAC, author of Eat Your Way to Wellness, on the importance of food and how it can positively or negatively affect our health and wellness. Jessica uses her medical expertise to help explain the background behind this “Food as Medicine” movement in a way we can all understand.
Happy June! Summer is officially in full swing. School is out, grills are on and family trips to the pool, beach or park are a weekend favorite. Don’t forget to pack some fresh fruits and veggies to fuel you up and keep you hydrated on hot days. While you’re at the grocery store, make sure to pick up some of these in-season fruits and veggies.
Believe it or not, summer break is almost here! Lazy days at the pool or beach offer a nice change of pace compared to the grind of the school year. For many families, the freedom of summer can mean more snacking on chips and trips to the ice cream shop. Maintaining healthy eating over the summertime is possible though, particularly with a little planning ahead.
Warmer weather is just around the corner (or already here for those of us in the South) and that means more opportunities to enjoy a summer cookout. Whether for Memorial Day, Father’s Day, the Fourth of July or any Saturday during summer, a cookout is a great way to enjoy warmer weather, eat delicious food and spend time with friends and family.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that this time of year brings with it a rainbow of fresh fruits and veggies! It’s the perfect time to add more color to your family cookouts, summer picnics and afternoon snacks. And don’t forget to get patriotic with your produce! With Memorial Day just around the corner and the Fourth of July coming soon after, keep this list of healthy red, white and blue recipes handy for your celebrations.
