Enjoy a healthy Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day promises to be the big kick-off for the summer picnic and barbecue season.

No matter where you celebrate, remember to keep safety and healthy eating in mind. As the temperatures increase this summer, remember to stay hydrated. When you are outside and moving around, your body loses water through sweating which can lead to dehydration.

By the time you feel thirsty, your body is already feeling the effects of dehydration. Keep plenty of water available for quick hydration. Try adding oranges, lemons, limes, berries or cucumbers to the water for a different flavor.

One of the highlights for this weekend is cooking out on the grill. Instead of the traditional hamburgers and hot dogs, why not try grilling chicken or fish for a healthier choice? Meat and vegetable kabobs are also a fun addition.
