Don’t forget the sunscreen
While sunscreen should be worn every day, it’s particularly important in the late spring and summer when skin requires extra protection from the sun’s harmful radiation. Applying sunscreen can help reduce your risk for skin cancer, premature aging and sunburns. The American Cancer Society recommends a sunscreen with broad-spectrum UV coverage with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at last 15.

Choose the right summer footwear
With the season of sunshine fast approaching, it’s important to step out safely by choosing the right footwear. Flip-flops are undeniably convenient for the beach. Yet, they are not the best choice for everyday wear. With thin soles and no support, they can cause foot pain, tendonitis and even sprained ankles if you trip. The key to healthy feet this summer is to let your feet breathe while providing them with ample support. Athletic sandals, canvas sneakers and loafers offer a cool summer look while providing the support needed to prevent injuries.

Salad for breakfast? Yes!
Cereal, toast or protein bar. Are you tired of your weekday breakfast? How about a salad? While not traditionally thought of as breakfast food, salads offer a convenient, satisfying and healthy alternative to usual breakfast-fare. And, with many benefits of choosing a primarily plant-based diet, a morning salad is a great way to enjoy your veggies and fruits. Options for creating a colorful breakfast salad are endless. Consider adding leftover vegetables from the previous night’s dinner, along with tomatoes, avocado, beans and a handful of nuts. You can even toss in an egg for extra protein.
