Pink lemonade with lemon, lime and strawberries

Summer is the time to enjoy vacations, BBQs and being outdoors. The last thing anyone wants to think about in the summer is calorie intake. It is sometimes hard to stick with a healthy eating plan when you are constantly on the go. It is important to remember you can still stay on track but enjoy eating and drinking. I find it helpful to have a few go to drinks that are light and fun when you are out with friends or relaxing at home on a warm summer night.

Below are a few websites with drink recipes that will keep you cool but will also perk up your taste buds. The best thing about them is they won’t rack up the calories!
