Here’s to a safe, happy and healthy Memorial Day!

Here’s a few tips to help you
enjoy a healthy & fun filled
Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is finally here! That long awaited long weekend that signifies the
start of summer, and means sunshine, getting together with friends, and BBQs.
If you’re looking to spend the weekend guilt free, follow these simple

  1. Get

the gorgeous weather, getting outside and participating in some outdoor games
should be fun. Join the volleyball game, Frisbee match, or tag that is going on
in your backyard. Enjoy the weather the right way and gain some extra energy to
mingle with family and friends!

  1. Drink lots of water

water will keep you full and help prevent you from overeating, or drinking too
much of those alcoholic beverages. It’ll keep you hydrated in the sun and
feeling refreshed.

  1. Make
    smart choices

    • Trade in those salty
      potato chips and creamy dip for organic baked blue corn chips and hummus,
      guacamole, or salsa
    • Choose corn on the
      cob with a healthy butter substitute
    • Make whole wheat
      pasta salad with olives, tomatoes, and roasted peppers topped with light
      balsamic vinegar
    • Serve lean turkey
    • Serve grilled chicken
      breast or steak
    • Serve nitrate ­free
      hot dogs on whole wheat buns
    • For dessert, make
      fruit kebabs by using a wooden skewer to thread together small pieces of
      pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, mango, watermelon, and kiwi

  1. Eat in moderation

over­do the eating. Even consuming large amounts of only healthy foods isn’t
good for you. When putting food on your plate, choose a dessert­ size plate to
control your portions, and keep your drinks limited.
