Embrace a Healthy Summer Eating Plan

Your Guide to a Healthy Summer Eating Plan

At Attractive Partners, we have created a summer eating guide that's both delicious and nutritious, keeping you feeling energised and vibrant!

Summer is a time for fresh, local fruits and vegetables at their peak. This is your chance to load up on antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, all while enjoying the vibrant flavours of the season. Stock your fridge with colourful fruits like berries, melons, and stone fruits. Don't forget about the abundance of vegetables available – think crisp salads, juicy tomatoes, zucchini, and leafy greens.

Here are some tips to incorporate summer produce into your meals:

  • vBreakfast: Start your day with a refreshing smoothie packed with berries, spinach, and yogurt. Top your whole-wheat toast with sliced avocado and vibrant cherry tomatoes.
  • Lunch: Salads become a summer staple. Pile on seasonal greens, grilled chicken or fish, and a light vinaigrette. Don't be afraid to experiment with different fruits – grilled peaches or watermelon add a unique twist.
  • Dinner: Fire up the grill! Grilled vegetables, lean protein like chicken or fish, and skewers of colourful peppers and onions are a healthy option.

Hydration is key

Summer heat can lead to dehydration, so staying hydrated is crucial. Infuse your water with fresh fruits and herbs like cucumber, mint, or berries for a refreshing and flavourful twist. Opt for unsweetened iced tea or sparkling water with a squeeze of citrus for a bubbly alternative.

Light, satisfying options

Summer meals don't have to be heavy. Focus on lean protein sources like grilled chicken or fish or incorporate vegetarian options like lentil burgers or tofu scrambles. Healthy fats from avocados, nuts, and seeds will keep you feeling satiated. Skip the creamy dressings and heavy sauces. Opt for light vinaigrettes made with olive oil and fresh herbs.

Indulge mindfully

There's always room for a summer treat! The key is moderation. Enjoy a scoop of frozen yogurt instead of a giant ice cream sundae. Satisfy your sweet tooth with fresh fruit skewers drizzled with a touch of honey.

Summer is a time for fun, relaxation, and of course, delicious food. By following these tips and embracing the season's fresh produce, you can create a healthy eating plan that keeps you feeling your best!
