Have you ever felt like your pursuit of better health becomes an uphill battle during the summer? With an abundance of fresh foods and countless social events, it can be challenging to stay on track with your health goals. Whether it’s graduation parties, work events, or family gatherings, there always seems to be something that derails your progress. We’ve been there too, but We’ve learned a valuable lesson along our health journey – we am the ones in control. It’s not a matter of circumstance; it’s about taking personal responsibility for the food choices you make and staying committed to your health plan.

Now, after experiencing incredible success with my health and nutrition, we are driven to help you achieve the same. So, what’s the key to improving your health, especially during the summer? It’s simple – planning. By becoming an active planner in your food choices and availability, you can stay on target and make continuous progress towards your health goals. Are you ready to take control of your health this summer? Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Contribute: When attending social gatherings, bring a healthy dish that you and your friends can enjoy. By providing a nutritious option, you create a win-win situation. Not only will you have a healthy choice available, but others who also want to avoid sugary and processed foods will appreciate the alternative.
  • Pack a Snack: If you find yourself at an event where you can’t contribute, make sure to pack a small, nutritious snack. It could be as simple as carrying a Good Fat Bar, a protein bar, or a bag of nuts in your purse or backpack. If you have access to a cooler, consider bringing cut veggies and fruits for larger snacks.
  • Don’t Go Hungry: Before leaving for an event, make sure to have a healthy meal so that you don’t feel tempted to indulge in unwanted foods. Just like how grocery shopping is easier when you’re not hungry, attending social events on a satisfied stomach makes it easier to stick to your plan.

Additionally, this summer, focus on incorporating low-carb “free foods” into your snacks. These foods are not only nutritious but also easy to pack for any occasion. Consider these highlights:

Veggies: Celery, cucumbers, mushrooms, olives, radishes, tomatoes.

Fruits: Apricots, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries.

Nuts: Almonds, cashews, peanuts, pistachios.

Remember, your health is in your hands. Embrace the summer season and all its festivities without undoing the progress you’ve made. Enjoy graduation parties, picnics, and social events while staying true to your health goals. With proper planning and mindful choices, you can savor the summer while nourishing your body and maintaining your well-being.
