Eating Healthy on Your Summer Schedule

Eating healthy on your summer schedule is doable!

Summer holidays, kid’s clinics and camps, travel plans, camping, and more!  We can appreciate that summer life can be so busy that it becomes difficult to stick to a healthy eating plan.  Here are some ideas for those of you always on the go:

You have got to eat breakfast no matter how busy you are. 

Try these balanced, quick breakfast options:

  • Fruit, fruit, fruit – that’s the beauty of summer.  Everything is in season and it tastes great.  As soon as you get home from grocery shopping, cut up watermelon, mango and pineapple so it’s ready to go.  Wash your strawberries, cherries, plums, peaches and nectarines so you can grab and go.
  • Greek yogurt and some mixed raisins, granola and dried fruit
  • Cereal with fruit
  • Toast and fruit
  • Peanut butter and banana sandwich
  • Bagel with cream cheese and a piece of fruit
  • Homemade muffin and a banana
  • Fruit smoothie made from yogurt and fruit

Heading to the beach or sporting clinics?

Here are some easy, lunch ideas to go:

  • Raw veggies with a container of plain yogurt or hummus for dipping
  • More fruit!
  • Salads with apples, strawberries, carrots, cranberries, goat cheese and whatever else you like.
  • Sandwiches  (tuna in pita bread or thick whole wheat bread, vegetables & cheese on a bagel, turkey & vegetables in pita bread, ricotta cheese & jam on your favourite bread, hummus & tomato on a baguette, cottage cheese & pineapple on a kaiser bun)
  • Crackers and cheese and hummus
  • Pasta salad made on the weekend
