Summer is all about being outdoors, lively and light on your feet. An unhealthy diet high in liquid calories without nutrition and not giving enough hydration to the body can make summers one of the worst weathers with allergies, weight gain, and dehydration. However, you can beat the summer heat with the right nutrition and ‘be beach ready’ at the same time.

Nutrition has the power to heal, prevent and cure any ailment. Summer is abundant with some of the juiciest fruits and freshest vegetables. Here are our top 5 Summer food which is packed and full of powerful nutrients.

Eating healthy, coupled with good physical exercise and activity make the perfect match. Make the best of the summer heat and sweat out those extra fats you piled on during Christmas. You can go hiking, running, swimming – the list is endless of things to do to make summer fun, healthy and great for your body. Have a fit and healthy Summer!
