It’s Vacation Time, So Choose Foods Wisely!

Healthy Tip Of The Month – May

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!
