One of the main components of summer fun is community, which is something we all need, and probably enjoy most, about the summer months. With the increase in our social calendars often times comes the packing on of a few pounds. The reason for this is that many summer traditions and holidays center around food. These foods have become such a part of our summers that we may feel we are “missing out” if we don’t partake in Aunt Tina’s beloved cream pie, or Susan’s twice baked potatoes. There are some practical ways to enjoy summer treats without sacrificing your commitment to health and wellness, so I decided to share 10 of these tips with you in the article below. My hope and prayer is that you enjoy all this summer has to offer and that you make a few new friends and memories along the way.
