Healthy eating in the summer

Vacations, outdoor cafes, barbecues and eating together. Summer is a challenge for many when it comes to healthy eating (and drinking). There are so many temptations and moments when you conscious choices must make, that it is easy to make the “wrong” choice. We will help you on your way to still healthy through the summer come. It’s not about always being the most healthy choice but there are some things you can pay a little attention to and that starts with being aware.

Habits

Stick to your habits. This sounds like a truism, but during vacations our routines are different and it is harder to stick to habits. Especially when we are in a different environment as well. In addition, we are dealing with longer days and higher temperatures, which simply makes us feel different and (usually) a other (eating) needs to have. However, try to stick to your eating times and if you start each morning with a cup of fresh ginger tea, then continue to do so above all else. Your body benefits from rhythm and regularity.

Planning

Planning ahead is an easy way to make sure during busy days and weeks that you are eating eating healthy, fresh and varied . Even during the summer, with unexpected visits, vacation outings and sudden heat waves, it helps to have thought about what you’re going to eat in advance and have that in the house. This is because it prevents you from having to go shopping at the last minute and possibly bringing in (more) unhealthy things than intended. It’s also handy to make a lot of pasta sauce, soup or something similar in advance and freeze it, so that you always your own ready-made meal at home and don’t have to get it from the supermarket or order food.

Small, cooling portions

In the summer, your body takes longer to digest food. In addition, you also need less food in the summer than in the winter, for example, because less energy is needed to keep your body warm. Therefore, choose smaller portions and eat light meals. Also, choose especially cooling and moisturizing foods. Generally, these are water-rich products, which are often bitter, sour or salty in taste. Examples include watermelon, coconut (water) and cucumber, as well as avocado, radishes, zucchini and tomato.

Summer fruit

It is always advisable to use fruits and vegetables of the season eat. In the summer, the most delicious home-grown fruits are available, including strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and berries of all kinds. You can of course eat them just like that, but you can also vary them endlessly in desserts, fruit waters, salads, smoothies and even ice creams! To make them into ice cream, simply throw them with some (Greek) yogurt in a blender and pour the smoothie into ice cream molds. The next day you then have delicious and healthy fruit ice creams.

Green Barbecuing

Summer is the time of the barbecue. Wonderful temperatures, long days and then throwing a nice piece of meat on the barbecue to eat together. But that can also be done differently. Barbecuing is much healthier if you also grilling vegetables! There is a lot of choice and variation possible with vegetables on the barbecue. Think (pointed) peppers, zucchini and eggplant, but also portobellos (mushrooms), which you can stuff and grill deliciously. Or chicory and romaine lettuce. Buy yourself a nice “green” cookbook or get some inspiration online and vary vegetables on the barbecue this summer.

The market

Maybe you already visit it weekly or maybe you never (get to). Summer is an excellent time to explore the weekly market, regional market or farmers market visit in your area. Take your time, make it an outing and have a chat with the farmers, who sell their products there. You will find delicious, fresh products from your area and can get inspiration for healthy meals. Go there on foot or by bike and you’ll have your movement catch.
