Staying healthy in summer can be quite the challenge. Social calendars are overflowing and most of us are more in the mood for a couple of pints and a burger in the sun over a gym session and a meal prepped Tupperware box. If the summer madness is starting to get the better of you, here’s our top hacks that will help staying healthy as easy as possible - get your smug face at the ready…
Freeze your fruit
Protein porridge is out, and smoothie bowls are in! Make breakfasts a breeze by filling up your freezer with frozen berries, bananas and tropical fruits so you can whip up an ice cold smoothie bowl or shake in seconds!
FFF The Training Plan
Summer tends to be a crazy time, so our friends at Fresh Fitness Food are here to take the effort out of eating well. The nutritionist designed meals are specifically created to both fuel your performance and keep you in a 15% deficit – perfect for those who want to reach their fitness goals whilst improving aesthetics. You’ll even get a FREE daily Neat protein sachet to refuel on the go!
Make our frozen yoghurt bark
Healthy summer snacking doesn’t get easier, tastier or more packed with protein than our frozen yoghurt bark recipe. Whip it up in 10 minutes on a Sunday, and you’ll have sweet treats ready and waiting to be grabbed straight from the freezer whenever a craving calls. Job done.
Take Your Workout Outside
No-one wants to be that sad person sweating it out in an empty gym whilst everyone else is out enjoying the sunshine! Use the weather to your advantage and mix up your training regime by taking your workout outdoors. Not sure where to start? Try our 4-week, kit free training guide to build lean muscle this summer.
If you are heading outside to get your workout in, then make sure to do it early! The light, sunny mornings will make it easier to haul yourself out of bed, and you’ll be thankful to get it done before the midday heat really sets in. Trust us, trying to run in 30-degree heat is not going to be fun! It also means there’s less chance of skipping your workout when all your mates are hitting the beer garden...
Keep Aloe Vera in the Fridge
Spent a little too long out in the sun? If you're suffering the pain of a classically British lobster tan, pop a bottle of aloe vera in the fridge so it’s ready and waiting to soothe sensitive skin.
