Summer Fun,(nutrition)

Summer Fun, Faith and Fitness  (Nutrition)
Here in Wisconsin, during the summer we are known for brats and beer.  Wisconsin is also known for its brandy consumption.  We are the “dairy state”, enjoying snacks such as cheese curds, strings cheese and ice cream.  All this is fun but in excess it will undermine our fitness goals.

This weekend have you planned your food or are you going to fly by the seat of your pants?

If you plan what you are going to eat, drink and snack on, you will be less likely to consume overindulgence. 

Tips on what to plan:

60 oz. water
2-3 fruits
5-7 veggies
3-4 lean proteins
2-3 fats
2 dairies
3 starches

This weekend let’s enjoy healthful food so we will have more energy to enjoy each other

Haggai 1:6:  Ye have sown much, and bring little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink, ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.  7.  Thus saith the Lord of hosts:  Consider your ways.”

Be fit and be blessed,

  1. Hi Kimberly,
    The other side of summer is that there are so many fresh vegetables and
    fruits available to counter the brats and fat. We have our own garden and
    are already enjoying home-grown lettuce, peas and asparagus, plus the benefit
    of getting a "garden work-out."

    I enjoy your e-mails and encouragement to keep fit and healthy and am praying
    for you.
