  2. What ingredients should not be included in a light diet for the summer,
  3. what kind of boxed diet to choose in order to eat light, healthy and choose what you like.

Dinner for summer and other meals - what products to reach for?

Whether it is autumn, winter, spring or summer, regular meals are the key to healthy eating. Thanks to them, the body gets into a good rhythm and does not stockpile ingredients that could later accumulate in the form of excessive body fat. Wondering what to eat in the summer when high temperatures make you feel like eating nothing? Fortunately it is not the case that only low-calorie meals are good in hot weather. So what to eat when the heat is pouring from the sky?

Take inspiration from, for example, Mediterranean cuisine. Such dishes as pasta with tomato sauce, risotto with seafood, all kinds of grilled and raw vegetables or salads are perfect as summer dinners. Limit meat, but don't give it up completely: 2-3 times a week will successfully suffice. Dairy products, such as oatmeal, are good for breakfast.

And most importantly: reach for fruit and vegetables regardless of the time of day. Summer is full of seasonal benefits - make the most of them! You will gain not only a good mood after a light meal, but also a lot of vitamins. In the summer season in your menu include, among others

  1. cucumbers - they contain few calories and are great for hydration - make a cucumber salad with natural yoghurt or simply put them on your sandwiches,
  2. blueberries - have a great effect on the digestive system and digestive processes, they also strengthen eyesight and are perfect as an addition to healthy sweet desserts,
  3. currants - contain pectin, which supports intestinal function and improves peristalsis; they are also rich in vitamin C, so they have a beneficial effect on immunity and help prevent atherosclerosis - they are perfect as an addition to desserts or morning porridge
  4. beets - have a great effect on the metabolism and contain a lot of beneficial fibre - make a traditional soup or modern veggie cutlets
  5. green beans - have a lot of folic acid, which is why they are recommended for pregnant women, in addition, their low glycemic index makes them a great product in the diet of diabetics - they work well as an addition to a dinner, e.g. instead of a salad.

As part of your summer diet don't forget about water either! You should drink at least 1.5-2 liters a day - and during hot weather even more.

Summer diet - what to avoid?

To feel good in summer, limit your intake of sugar, salt and fat. Avoid heavy meals and high-calorie snacks - they make you feel sluggish and tired, but you could be living life to the full and making the most of the good weather!

Also give up foods that lose their freshness quickly. Cakes with cream or sweet drinks left even for a few hours in the heat create ideal conditions for bacterial growth.
