Foods to Eat More of This Summer

Category: Blog

Now that summer is in full swing, there are many healthy foods currently in season that are not only tasty but will also help you beat the heat. Here are just a few of the ones we recommend to stay healthy and refreshed!

Watermelon

It’s clear from the name that the watermelon is packed with water to help you stay hydrated in the heat. While it’s important to drink water, you can mix up the routine by eating a couple slices of fresh watermelon for the same hydrating effect!

Blueberries

Blueberries are chock-full of antioxidants and nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. They can protect your body from cell damage and the more negative effects of aging. Blueberries have even been found to help maintain a low blood pressure with regular consumption.

Cherries

Cherries are packed with beta-carotene, which helps to keep your lungs and brain healthy.

Raspberries

These are a tasty summer berry that is rich in soluble fiber, which helps to lower or maintain your cholesterol levels. Eating lots of food rich in fiber can help prevent weight gain and even help you with your weight loss goals!

These are only a few of the foods in season this summer that provide you with refreshing nourishment. Keep an eye out for these on your next supermarket trip!
