Lite Summer Bites
After spending the day outside soaking up the rays, hunger sets in. But you don’t want to overload yourself with heavy carbs and no nutrition, especially in hot weather. Here are some lite summer bites to enjoy while (safely!) getting your tan on.
Nothing refreshes your taste buds like a slice of watermelon after the first bite! Rehydrating you with water after a sun-filled day, watermelon is also a great source of Vitamin C.
This is the time to add some color to the basic salad. This season brings about new fruits and veggies that can be thrown into your salad mix. Adding some peppers and spinach can make a simple salad take on a whole new taste.
Did you know? Corn contains two antioxidants (lutein and zeaxanthin), that help filter out some of the sun’s damaging rays. So after a long day in the sun, this super healthy food fills you up with the nutrition you lost.
Among the dozens of nutritious foods to eat during the summer, picking them up at farmer’s markets can guarantee the freshest. Check out the nearest farmer’s market here.
