Hello Beautiful People ❤
I hope you’re all having a lovely day? The Summer is now in full swing, how long it lasts though is a different story. While it’s here however, there’s no reason why we can’t make the most of it. I always tend to to struggle with the healthy eating when the hot weather comes along. I definitely let things slip since last Friday, so on Tuesday I dragged myself back onto the wagon.
The weather is even better this week, but I am determined not to over indulge. A few little treats here and there isn’t any harm in my opinion, so I’ve put together a little Summer Swap List. These Snacks and Treats won’t make you feel like you’ve undone all you’re hard work.
BBQ’s tend to become more frequent when the weather gets hot – who doesn’t love a good BBQ in the sun? Sometimes it’s nice to just indulge, but when it’s already been an indulgent week, I try to make some healthier choices when it comes to what I put with my burger.
I know in many cases it can get a bit boring only drinking water. It’s nice to grab something refreshing with a nice flavour. Juice is often portrayed as the healthy option, however a lot of juices can have the same amount of sugar as a doughnut. I know which I would rather blow my indulgence on!
I know all of the above are not necessarily part of a completely ‘Clean Diet’ but sometimes we have to treat ourselves. Live a little! I find if I restrict myself while everyone else is enjoying themselves, I just give in and over eat then to compensate. Balance helps fuel willpower and prevents splurges when it comes to yummy food.
I hope these little swaps and healthy alternatives are helpful 🙂
Have a great week Guys ❤
