Fit- and Food-Savvy Summer

Although summer doesn’t officially start until June, the season in Rancho Sahuarita is already underway. Between the rising temps and monsoons around the corner, fitness and staying active can be tough to keep as priorities during the summer months. That’s why we’ve put together some tips for creative ways to keep fitness and healthy eating in your daily life during these busy months, and make certain that you can have a fit- and food-savvy summer to be proud of.

Try out a new recipe

Just as important as physical activity in our lives is the food that fuels us. While soups and stews offer delicious comfort during the cooler months, the summer season has us looking for something lighter.

You can find lots of recipes for lighter options that are great for your health and your overall well-being. Pack a boring bowl of greens with inviting summer veggies like carrots, cucumbers, peppers and more. Or opt for summer staples like fish tacos and grilled pizzas. Check out some inspiration here, with a great article from Taste of Home. 

While recipes are a great way to get into the mood of summer, the items that go into those recipes are just as important. Research is continuing to support the benefits of a diet high in fruits and vegetables, fiber and whole foods. Once found only in-home gardens and rural markets, organic produce is now often found in easily accessible stores and markets – including in the Fry’s Marketplace in Rancho Sahuarita – making it increasingly easy to make healthy choices.
