A Sizzling Summer



Summer time needn’t spell the end of your healthy eating regime. In fact, it can often be easier to lose weight during the summer months. The choice of fresh fruit, vegetables and salads is certainly better and barbecuing can be a healthy alternative to normal meals. Try these tips below for dining al fresco, the healthy way: -


Meat, Fish and Alternative

  • Nuts or fruits such as orange segments could be added to salad
  • Try roasted Mediterranean vegetables – peppers, tomatoes, onions, courgettes, aubergines, wrapped in foil and sprinkled with olive oil.
