5 Tips to Being Healthier This Summer

5 Tips to Being Healthier This Summer

Ramp up your wellness and make the most of the summer season. At Eat Clean Bro, we're all about fueling your body with wholesome, nutritious meals that support your health goals. Here are five tips on embracing a healthier lifestyle this summer.

1. Stay Active

Summer is the perfect time to get outdoors and stay moving. However, exercising regularly is not only about having a great physique (although that's a nice perk!). It also provides numerous benefits to both our physical and mental health. Regular exercise can boost our energy levels, strengthen our heart and muscles, improve our mood, and even help us sleep better. The warm weather is the perfect time to explore the outdoors, go for a walk, bike ride, or hike.

2. Take Advantage of Summer Foods and Vegetables

Summer is a time for fresh, local produce that's bursting with flavor and nutrients. In-season fruits and vegetables offer the perfect opportunity to embrace a clean-eating approach. Our chefs work magic with seasonal local ingredients in our ready-made meals. In New Jersey, we're lucky to have access to some of these fantastic seasonal produce: 

  • Watermelon: This refreshing fruit is over 90% water, making it perfect for hydration on hot days. It's also packed with vitamins A and C, which are important for immune function and healthy skin.
  • Tomatoes: Juicy and versatile, tomatoes add a burst of flavor to salads, sandwiches, and pasta dishes. They're a great source of lycopene, an antioxidant that can help protect against heart disease and certain cancers.
  • Corn: Fresh, sweet corn on the cob is a quintessential summer treat. It's a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrates, which will keep you feeling full and energized.

3. Drink Water

Hydration is key to feeling your best, especially when the summer sun is strong. Make sure to stay hydrated throughout the day with plenty of water. Need a little flavor or a tip to get you to drink more? Try infusing your water with fresh fruits or herbs.

4. Prioritize Rest and Recovery

You may be more inclined to be on the go and take advantage of the warm weather and longer daylight hours but don't forget to give your body the rest it deserves. Make sure to get plenty of quality sleep each night to recharge and support your overall well-being. When it comes to exercise, listen to your body and take rest days when you need them. 

Our meals are designed to fuel your body for peak performance, so you can rest easy knowing you're giving your body the nutrients it needs to thrive with the right meal prep.

5. Enjoy The Weather

Don't forget to soak up the sunshine and enjoy the beautiful weather. Whether you're lounging by the pool, hosting a backyard barbecue, or visiting the Jersey Shore, take advantage of the summer. More than that, warm weather and sunshine have a powerful impact on our mental health. Warm weather and spending time outdoors contribute to a happier feeling and an increase in Vitamin D. Spending time outside can also significantly reduce stress levels and feelings of anxiety, leading to a more relaxed and peaceful state of mind.
