When the weather is miserable during the winter months and we know that there is plenty more of that ahead of us, we look for ways of bringing a touch of sunshine and summer into our lives. An easy way to do this is to make sure we include some of the things in our lives that we associate most with summer. This can be anything from party music to summer-themed movies, and there are plenty of things that you can choose from.
Fruits are a good way to bring a taste of summer into our lives and there are plenty that we associate with the summer months. Melon, watermelon, mango and strawberries are all popular choices. They may be out of season during the colder months but if you want to make a strawberry smoothie in February you are sure to be able to find them.
You may also find that during the winter months you are eating ‘heavier’ foods that leave your system feeling sluggish. We get tempted to do this because the weather is cold and we feel as though we need to be warmed up a little. Keep your system running smoothly and light with the addition of a summery drink such as a strawberry smoothie. Try them as an alternative breakfast to provide you with a good start to the day. The energy they can provide will give you a boost as you go about your day and help to stop you from feeling as though you need to give your system a spring clean as soon as the warmer weather arrives.
Why not try a strawberry or summer fruits smoothie as a regular part of your diet to see what difference it can make to your health and outlook on life?
