Ready to make this your best spring and summer yet? Let’s dive into these tips that are sure to make your sunny seasons even brighter.

Healthy Grilling with the Right Oils

When it comes to grilling, choosing the right oil makes all the difference. Opt for oils with high smoke points to ensure your food is grilled to perfection without any harmful byproducts. Avocado, canola, and peanut oils are great choices that can withstand the heat. Save the olive oil for your salads and cool dishes. It’s best used at lower temperatures to preserve its flavor and nutritional benefits.

Elevate Your Hydration Game

Believe us, staying hydrated doesn't have to be boring. Forget plain old water! Let’s jazz it up. Our Minerals & Antioxidants mix turns your glass into a fruity getaway with a twist of flavor that also packs a nutritional punch. Or, for a green boost, add our Greens Blend with some lemon to transform your drink into a delicious powerhouse of refreshing nutrients.

Whether you’re hitting the gym, lounging at the pool, or just keeping busy with your daily routine, enhance your hydration with these tasty additions made to keep you refreshed and revitalized all season long.

Block Harmful UVAs & UVBs

All this sunshine calls for serious sun protection. Did you know that while UVB rays can burn your eyes, UVA rays can age them? That’s why choosing the right sunglasses is crucial. Look for sunglasses labeled with '100% UVA/UVB protection' to shield your eyes from harmful rays. Protecting your eyes helps you enjoy sunny days safely for many years to come.

Natural Ways to Keep Bugs Away

Don't let bugs put a damper on your outdoor fun this season. Instead of reaching for chemical-laden repellents, why not try a gentler, natural approach? Essential oils like citronella, eucalyptus, and lavender are not only pleasant smelling, they're also effective at keeping those pesky insects at bay. You can mix these oils with a carrier oil and apply them directly to your skin or add a few drops to your diffuser to create a bug-free zone in your backyard. Your skin and the environment will thank you!

Adding some outdoor time with your pets is a great way to enjoy the sunny days of spring and summer.

Make the Best of Outdoor Time

Getting outside is one of the best parts of spring and summer. Whether you’re a gardening guru, a pet parent, or just love a good stroll, there's something refreshing about spending time in nature.

Here are some other ideas of how to get outside this season:

  • Take your furry friend for a morning walk
  • Plant a butterfly or herb garden
  • Find free events in your city, like concerts or yoga classes
  • Pack a picnic and go to your favorite park
  • Grab your camera and take some nature photos
  • Look for local leagues for sports like pickleball, tennis, or kickball

Whatever your interest, there’s an abundance of ways to enjoy the outdoors and reap the benefits of fresh air and sunshine.

Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen

No matter how much you love the sun, it’s smart to play it safe with your skin. Always choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for effective protection. Apply liberally about 30 minutes before you head outside - that gives it time to absorb properly. And remember, reapplication is key, especially after swimming, sweating, or toweling off. For an easy reminder, reapply every two hours. A good sunscreen protects your skin and keeps it looking healthy and youthful.

Eating with the Seasons

Embracing a seasonal diet is a journey of flavor. During spring and summer, a bounty of fruits and vegetables reach their peak, offering you the best in freshness and nutritional value.

Here are some top picks to add to your meals through spring and summer:

  • Peaches
  • Cherries
  • Strawberries
  • Cantaloupe
  • Watermelon
  • Cucumbers
  • Radishes
  • Sweet corn
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Bell peppers
  • Tomatoes

Incorporating these seasonal delights into your meals supports local farmers and provides richer flavors with better nutritional benefits. Whip up a fruit salad, throw some veggies on the grill, or simply enjoy them fresh. Eating with the seasons is a delicious way to keep your diet varied and exciting.

Summing It All Up

With these seven stellar tips, you’re all set to make this spring and summer your healthiest and happiest yet! From grilling with the right oils to protecting your skin and staying hydrated with flavorful drinks, embracing these habits can significantly enhance your well-being. Don’t forget to spend time outdoors, enjoying everything the season has to offer, while eating fresh, seasonal produce. Here’s to a vibrant, joyful season filled with good health and great memories!
