Summer means parties, nights out, catered events, airport food, and hotel meals. While that isn’t ideal most of the year, summer is a new season with its own routines. So instead of skipping out or over-indulging, we’re striving for balance when we find ourselves eating out more than normal!
Summer is also a great opportunity to try new foods! Summer produce is abundant – load up on healthy, fresh goodness that is also lighter fare! The markets are overflowing with bright colors and delicious, season items!

If so, I challenge you to spend a little time this week showing your gut some love.
