Many of us will be throwing a great Memorial Day cookout or a weekend getaway to start off this Summer. Memorial Day signifies the beginning of a season; a time of grilling, baseball and sun tans. Cookouts and travel can sometimes spell disaster for those of us trying to stay healthy. Here are a few tips to keep on track this holiday weekend.
1. Half your plate should be fruits and vegetables! Summer is a great season for fresh, local ingredients. Try a new fruit or vegetable this weekend.
It’s spring, so you know what that means — lots of green vegetables. Asparagus has become one of my favorite vegetables, although I would have disagreed if you had asked me about it six years ago! It’s quick and easy to roast or bake, which is perfect for my quick dinners as a full-time college student.
Starting your morning off with a good breakfast that contains fiber, protein and even some carbs is crucial to fueling your day. The easiest way to do that? A super-quick breakfast sandwich! Mix and match ingredients to your liking to make the perfect breakfast sandwich for you!

As the weather gets warmer, I always tend to crave seafood. There is nothing quite like the taste of fresh seafood from the coast. Spring has arrived and I can smell the salt water as I envision the beach while sitting at my desk. You may not be at the beach, but you can make your own delicious fresh fish at home.
We all feel a need for something sweet now and then, but the guilt we feel from eating foods full of sugar and carbohydrates isn’t always worth the intake of calories. Yet, you still yearn for something to indulge in. Children especially love sweets, but buying cookies and candy isn’t the best idea for their health and wellness.
