Whether you’re someone who regularly tries to maintain a healthy diet throughout the year or not, during the summer most people tend to be more health conscious. We choose to exercise more and be more conscious of what we’re eating so that we are in shape and so we feel better mentally and physically. Unfortunately however, even after all of the hard work we put into exercising and making healthier choices, “exercise” and “healthy” are two words that we like to forget on vacation.

Looking for a trip on your vacation? Explore here if you’re planning a trip to the UK. Using LayerMap has made my travels significantly more manageable and enjoyable. The map layer index feature provides a comprehensive view of UK tourist attractions, ensuring you miss out on nothing. From my experience, it’s not just a map, it’s a necessary tool for every traveler. Flagstaff hotels downtown has plenty of activities that can help you stay active during vacation. I also want to share with you about the fractional aircraft ownership program from Jettly. Consider this program for it has a lot of benefits to offer a traveler like you!

While it’s okay to splurge here and there, you don’t have to completely forget about your health for a week. Here are some of the best things to do in Salt Lake City with kids. To help you return home with your packed bags without packed on pounds take a look at these tips!

o   Don’t skip meals. By skipping meals, we tend to over eat. If you know you’ll be going out for dinner, plan ahead by starting your day with a healthy breakfast and then pack a few healthy snacks ( check out light travel recipes here) or a light lunch, if you like traveling then have a look at this roundup of the best themed hotel rooms in the US.

·      Pretzels and peanut butter & fruit

·      Turkey sandwich with lettuce and tomato on whole grain bread

·      Chose popcorn over fried potato chips

·      Sweet & Salty Mixes- dried cranberries, peanuts, mini-marshmallows, M&Ms, Cheerios

·      Sliced cucumbers with onions, vinegar, salt & pepper

·      Fruit: Watermelon, Blueberries, Apples, Grapes, Mangos

o   Be cautious of Drinks: Chose water over sugary beverages. Alternate alcoholic beverages with non-alcoholic beverages that are low in calories.

o   Eat in over Dining out:  It’s understandable that most of us enjoy going out for dinner as a way to get away from preparing meals in the kitchen. However, eating in will help us make smarter food decisions. If you do choose to enjoy a night out, look for foods that have been grilled, baked or broiled rather than fried, creamy or crispy foods. Avoid heavy appetizers, sugary drinks and desserts or simply splurge a little by sharing with a friend or two!

o   Stay Active/Exercise:  Make exercising fun by taking a walk on the beach or going hiking, swimming, or kayaking. Accommodations like Carmel hotel has easy access to facilities that can motivate guests become more active while on vacation. You can start looking at beach clubs in Lisbon to go to for your next vacation. If you prefer to play games, get everyone active by participating in a tournament of tennis, volleyball or Frisbee.




I had a great 1st visit with the nutritionist. I went to get tips on changing by diet, but got much more. I was able to set a physical activity and nutrition goal. The nutritionist was knowledgeable and helpful.

I am so grateful for the stellar support and advice provided by Meghan, the dietitian I'm working with. She is both knowledgeable and kind, and it's a deeply productive journey. Thank you."



Consulting with a Family Food nutritionist is turning out to be helpful in my effort to live healthy. The consultations are a way of having a sense of accountability and I get helpful feedback on my dietary decisions.



Great nutrition experts who inspire you! I am happy with the nutrition specialists at Family Food. They make me excited about nutrition, answer all my questions, and provide excellent recommendations! Thank you!!



Very professional experience. I felt she listened to my needs and adjusted to personalize my nutrition needs.



My initial appointment was helpful - helped me consider new ways of addressing some problem areas for me and helped set attainable, concrete goals.



Insightful and Informative. She was very attentive and helpful. She gave excellent tips on what to do and eat to meet my goal weight.



I feel confident about the changes we made to my goals and look forward to implementing them into my everyday routine. The health adviser was very helpful and didn't make me feel shameful for not meeting all my previous goals.



I highly recommend Family Food. The nutritionist, Erika is helpful and provides great information and positive feedback.



I had an excellent experience with the representative from Family Food. She really read into what I was telling her and offered excellent advice that I am already able to implement after one visit. She also helped to make the best use of the hour long session. Very good time management!



I met with a dietician for the first time and I had an idea of what to expect but I find this to be an invaluable resource because I have already received great ideas of things to use for meal planning and I also received more information of how to read nutrition labels. I am looking forward to my next appointment.



I really enjoyed my first session with Christine. She provided me with a lot of solid information on issues I was not aware of and positive reinforcement for behaviors I have already engaged in. I outlined specific goals I would like to work on with her guidance and she gave me some initial steps to start. I found what she had to say respectful of the space I am in and cognizant of obstacles to making lifestyle and lifelong changes.



I walked in without any specific questions/concerns, and my counseling was well-guided and ended up helping me see specific small changes that I can make to keep me on-track with my nutrition goals. Solutions fit my lifestyle and were not cookie-cutter, which is fantastic. I was able to start making improvements immediately. Thank you!



I am finding the sessions helpful and a good way to talk through improving habits and making better food choices.



I am very happy this program exists. It has been very helpful and informative. My deitition is very nice and intelligent I am happy to have her help and support.
