Summer Road Trips: 3 Ways to Healthful Eating

Time to hit the road! I love a summer road trip, but with it comes lots of extra work. So much to plan and do: where to go, what to pack, what to do. Plus, I have to consider who will watch my dogs and water my garden. Can I meet all of my deadlines if I take time off? With all of this on my mind, it’s easy to forget – or rationalize away – healthy eating goals. Don’t. Instead, add wholesome eating to your road trip plan. You’ll be so glad to return home with memories and souvenirs and without the regret of an unhealthful diet or extra pounds.

Try this 3-prong approach.

Summer Picnics

I don’t know about you, but I love being outdoors in the summertime. I especially love al fresco dining. Whether you are planning a backyard barbecue, a deck party, or packing a picnic to go, I encourage you to plan a festive spread that encompasses the basic food groups as well as a dessert or treat, and includes cool beverages to quench the summer heat.
