Healthy Diet

Eating healthy during the summer doesn’t mean you have to skip the great outdoors in favor of the kitchen. Purchasing foods from a retailer that has online shopping and delivery will allow you to spend less time perusing the isles of the grocery store and more time at the beach or pool. Additionally, many types of summer produce taste great raw. Take advantage of this fact and you’ll be able to cut down on meal prep and avoid firing up the stove or oven on a hot day. Cold salads pair well with rice, quinoa and other grains, which can be made easily in a rice cooker. For assistance with meal plans, see Atlantic Health System’s nutrition services >
