5 ways to savor summer with your family

Summer is a great time to get healthy and stay healthy. Here are five ways to savor the season and stay diet-smart.

Drink water, and lots of it. Make it even more refreshing by adding mint leaves, lime, lemon or frozen fruit.

2

Visit farmers markets, and treat your family to what’s fresh.

3

Grow your own garden. Don’t have space to spare? Try planting in pots or joining a community plot.

4

Get your fill of fruits and veggies before eating the rest of your meal. One way is to fill a bowl with a lettuce mix and add protein to the top.

5

Get out the grill! Throw on lean options like chicken or turkey burgers, vegetables and fruits. Add more flare with different seasonings.
