Feeding our bodies with certain foods can provide us with the necessary nutrients to stay healthy, while other things provide much-needed ways to feed our minds and souls — nurturing good times with our loved ones. Here are a few to think about this season. For even more tips and tricks, follow our Big Y dietitian team on Facebook at LivingWellEatingSmart or on YouTube at BigYWorldClassMarket.
A Whole Lot of Watermelon.
Watermelon packs lots of antioxidants, promotes a healthy heart and helps with weight loss.
Peach Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles.
When you need a simple snack for the summertime, you can’t go wrong with popsicles. With a reasonable amount of sugar, fat and calories and all the flavor, your kiddos will love them. And guess what? There are adult versions as well. Scan the code to find out more.
If you’re looking for an idea that everyone will enjoy outside, look no more. Chalk art is a colorful way to get some fresh air with the kiddos and an excellent creative outlet.
Let The Sunshine In.
We’re more likely to move when we’re basking in the sun, and that’s a good thing. Sunshine also improves your mood and lessens your stress. So, grab your sunglasses and enjoy the sunshine.
Sweet as Honey.
Some of the sweet benefits of honey are helping control cholesterol, boosting energy and preventing nausea.
Unsweetened, Yet So Sweet.
Unsweetened iced teas are the healthiest kind, thanks to the fewer calories and sugars and lots of antioxidants.
