Healthy eating for summer
You know we are firm advocates of all things that make us feel fantastic here at Hydropool Wiltshire. From getting better sleep to recovering sports injuries, we want to make it our mission to help your body and mind feel fantastic. And, one of the main things we can all do to help this is eat a little better.
During winter, it can be very difficult to get into a healthy eating routine. Cold nights call for hearty stews, luscious red wine and great servings of crumble and custard. However, when the days get longer and the temperature rises, we can all feel better opting for lighter options with our food and drink. Out come the creative pasta salads, the cooling, fresh drinks with lashings of ice and the bright fruits of summer.
And it all makes us feel so much better! Not to mention is so much healthier for our bodies too.
Start the day right with a delicious smoothie, for example. Whether you have a specific smoothie maker or simple stick blender, just grab a couple of your favourite fruits and whizz them up with water, orange juice or milk for a speedy, healthy breakfast. You could pop a couple of strawberries, a banana and some orange juice for instance. Super simple and super healthy.
Opt for less bread too – it will make you feel less bloated on hot days – and instead go for fresh salad, cous cous or quinoa at lunchtime, finishing your day with a fresh pasta salad, grilled fish or stuffed peppers. Being healthy doesn’t have to be over-complicated, and the flavours are divine.
And, don’t forget to treat yourself to a soak in your Hydropool tub at the end of the day for being oh so good!
