Top 10 Tips for Healthy Eating During Summer Holidays

 

Who else is loving the perfect summer weather we have been enjoying so far? Ummm everyone right?

For us the longer days and warmer weather means more adventures outdoors, beach days and cottage time. I wanted to share that with all of the excitement of summer our family still commits to healthy eating even on vacation, weekends at the cottage and long weekends. I wanted to share how we do this and inspire you to do the same. I am so passionate about helping everyone make healthy eating a lifestyle and keeping it delicious, fun, attainable and works for them.

This is one of the reasons I created my new Community 30-Day Clean Eating Program is to show others ways to create a healthy lifestyle and make it accessible even during the summer months, through BBQ’s, parties and just life in general. I wanted to help coach people through the month and to make healthy eating work for you (with loads of my favourite, most delicious recipes). I am currently running this program and because it has been so life changing and successful we will be running it again Monday August 12th click to register: https://www.pamrocca.com/products/30-day-clean-eating-challenge 

One of the biggest tips to healthy eating is to make it consistent.

Do you eat the same way on Monday vs Friday? That has been one of the biggest factors for my healthy eating journey, I aim to treat weekends and holidays like any other day. Seeing as this is the most popular weekend for vacation I thought it would be a great time to share our Top 10 tips for healthy eating during the summer or on vacation.

Peanut Chicken or Chickpea Tacos In a Lettuce Wrap

 This past week I was feeling really creative in the kitchen and I took one of the recipes from my new cookbook - The Peanut Slaw Bowl and I wanted to make a spin on it and turn it into dinner. The chicken and chickpea tacos were the outcome and I couldn’t be more pleased with how easy and delicious this recipe is. Honestly dinner is ready in under 20 minutes and it can be a hit with the whole family. I do mine in lettuce wraps which makes it gluten free and lower in calories which suits my nutritional needs (as I am currently running a 30 day clean eating challenge if you want to join the fun click here https://www.pamrocca.com/custom-meal-plans) and my family enjoys their tacos in whole wheat wraps with no cilantro which suits their needs.

This recipe shows that you can eat clean and your food can and should be so flavourful, I would never post something that was bland or boring. That’s just not me. I want to get everyone excited to eat more veggies, to think twice about what we are putting in our bodies and make it so simple that there really are no excuses to not eat healthier. Because honestly you guys, what we eat affects how we feel each and every day…and I want you to all feel fantastic!

I created two versions of this recipe both are yummy! Pick the one that suits your nutritional needs and goals and enjoy.
