Healthy Tips for July 4th

Standard

July 4th is right around the corner. It’s a time for cookouts, mingling with friends, fireworks, and family fun. I have put together a list of healthy tips to help you out this weekend.  Enjoy the holiday and be safe.

  • Drink water instead of sodas which are loaded with sugar and empty calories. Add lemon or fruit to your water to give it flavor.
  • Choose healthier sides such as fruit salad, green salad or mixed vegetables.
  • Limit the amount of carbs you put on your plate.
  • Eat dessert in moderation. DO NOT over indulge!
  • Choose baked food options over fried foods.
  • Pay attention to the portions you put on your plate.
  • Limit salt intake.
  • Go for a walk after your meal if possible.
