Healthy Summer Eating

Isabel Hinton, Bronson Health Educator, recently stopped by WKZO to discuss ideas for eating healthy during these hot summer months, as well as some ideas for incorporating local seasonal produce into your menu. Check it out!

Nutrition and Wellness Tips

  • Build your meals around the produce: Try adding lettuce and tomato to your sandwiches or spinach to your pasta. This bulks up your meal with healthy foods that are nutrient-rich, making your meals stretch a little further.
  • Find physical activities that you enjoy: Healthy adults should be aiming for at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week. Find ways to move your body that you actually enjoy doing! Walk to the farm market. Ride your bike. There are so many ways to get outside and moving this summer!
