Vacation is the time to be most mindful of what you eat! Choose your food wisely. Your body doesn’t know it’s on vacation! You work so hard at living a healthy lifestyle during the rest of the year, why should a short vacation change your eating habits? A sudden spike in your cholesterol levels can be deadly if your body hasn’t been accustomed to eating in that fashion for a while. I’m sure you’ve heard that Country Western song that mentions the “99 cent heart attack” in one of the verses – well let me tell you, it’s a real thing! Instead of opting for that nice juicy steak, hamburger, hot dog or sausage, choose one of those savory seasoned vegetables fresh off the grill. I can state with a reasonable degree of certainty, that there won’t be much competition for the healthy foods at most summer barbeques! It’s time to start a healthy eating trend! Why don’t we lead by example and change the way our family and friends eat. There’s no time like the present! It’s Vacation Time…Choose Foods Wisely!
