Scales tipped a little too much on the side of indulgence this summer? It may be time to bring things back in balance. Thankfully, there are lots of ways to lighten up during the summer—here are three of our favorites:
Focus on Fresh and Seasonal ProduceIce cream isn’t the only food synonymous with summer—there’s a cornucopia of summer fruit and vegetables available over the course of the season, perfect for fresh, healthy meals that can help you feel great. Head to your local farmers market and watch for items like peaches, corn, strawberries, and summer squash, among others.
HydrateBeating the summer heat requires you to stay hydrated in order to keep your body temperature regulated and keep muscles functioning efficiently. So, fill up your water bottle every chance you get (throw in some Red Beet Crystals (US/CA) for extra flavor), and when it comes to snack time, focus on fruit with a high water content, such as watermelon and strawberries.
Clean HouseFlush out some of the excess toxins and waste that can build up over time by doing a summer cleanse. Taking Flora Flor•Essence® Herbal Tea Blend (US/CA) can boost your efforts, with an 8-herb formula that supports and accelerates the removal of toxins and waste from the body, stimulates digestion, and supports immune function,* getting you back to your best self to enjoy the best of the season.
