Summer nutrition and fitness tips!
Most people's schedules or routines shift a bit in the summer time.
The heat, longer days, the kids being home from school, vacations, holidays, warm summer nights and cool summer mornings, all these things affect our schedules, circadian rhythms and routines.
This is why I've created a downloadable guide to honoring (and creating!) nutritional commitments, even when our routines change.
It is possible to enjoy summer vacations and bbq's and not feel regret or like you have to "get back on track" come September.
There's lots of simple things you can do when on vacation or eating out to eat in a manner that nourishes your body and makes you feel good, both and tomorrow!
