5 Ingredients You Need This Summer

 In Nutrition

 

1 Watermelon

One of the highest water content fruits! Every juicy ripe bite packs the lyocpene in which act as natural anti-inflammtories and is also a natural electrolyte. On a hot summer day after a workout I dont grab a gatorade… I grab a raw watermelon water. Sometimes I even jazz it up with lime juice and cayenne. Mix it half and half with coconut water and make a lot of best friends when you share your brilliant concoction.

2 Mint

Doesnt it just smell so wonderful? Skip all the calorie packed dressings and toss in some herbs. Mint adds a fresh flavor to your salad, cleanses your palate and aids in digestion… among the MANY other benefits. I tear it up instead of chopping it to keep the oils and flavor. Favorite menu item to add it to? Watermelon Feta Salad.

3 Avocado

There ARE good types of fat and this is one of them! I eat avocados right out of their shell, but I love to add it to my breakfast wraps, salads for lunch without feeling weighed down, post workout for blood pressure control and a dose of protein. I even make shakes and dessert out of them!! HDL’s are unsaturated fats that provide essential nutrients to your body. They help keep skin nourished and lubricates the body from the inside out. Consider it brain food!

Prime Time for stone fruit and what a sweet way to satisfy a sugar craving without all the added sugars, theyll digest quickly easily and make you feel like you’re taking a bite out of summer. Eat it alone, add it to a salad, chop it up and add it to your overnight oats, grill some peaches and toss it with a piece of fish, you cant go wrong.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

5 Heirloom Tomatoes

These meaty tomatoes are stars on their own, steal the show in Gazpacho, and are a great addition to any salad, or burger. The shining stars make up about 20% of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin A, and a whopping 40% of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin C, thats what Im talking about.
