Maybe it is the warm weather, or maybe it is the lingering threat of having to rock a swimsuit, but whatever the motivating factor, summer is the perfect time to start eating healthy. If you are interested in shedding unwanted pounds and making a positive lifestyle change, making healthy meal choices is a great place to begin. Below we are put together a few healthy summer eating tips that your whole family will love.

Healthy Summer Eating Tip #1: Grill It. There is nothing better than being outdoors in beautiful weather. For this reason, the summer is a great time to grill out. The good news is that you can cook relatively anything on the grill with very little prep time. Anything from meats and poultry to fresh veggies and fish. Stock up on vegetables such as corn and squash and throw them on the grill for a delicious, healthy dinner side dish. All you need is a little seasoning and you are good to go. So get outside and fire up those grills, because where there is a “grill” there is way.

Healthy Summer Eating Tip #2: Go Fresh. With access to fresh fruits and vegetables this summer there is no excuse for eating from a can. Take a trip to your local farmer’s market, or if you are feeling adventurous, grab the family and go strawberry picking. There is nothing better than fresh fruit and veggies straight from the vine. It is never too late to start a garden to grow fresh produce of your own. All you need is dirt, seeds, and a little TLC.

Healthy Summer Eating Tip #3: Make It a Picnic. Eating healthy is always more fun with a group. Grab your family and your fresh snacks and head to the park, lake, or backyard for a picnic. Bring a frisbee, play catch, or opt for an invigorating game of tag. An after meal hike or stroll is a great way to burn calories while spending quality time with loved ones. Be sure to bring along plenty of water to stay hydrated and promote weight loss.
