NATIONAL BLUEBERRY MONTH
It’s NATIONAL BLUEBERRY MONTH!!! And how better celebrate than by eating so many blueberries that you literally turn blue? (Okay, don’t really do that.) But seriously. Blueberries are the best. Not only are they tasty, they also have one of the highest antioxidant capacities of all fresh foods! By now you already know these wonderful little drops of heaven can be incorporated into pies, shakes, and of course, cobblers, but did you know you can actually use this delicious little fruit for something… healthy?! Here’s a simple recipe for a healthy blueberry inspired snack that you can nibble on the go.

SUN SMART
July 3rd is Stay Out of the Sun Day, which incidentally is on a Thursday, not a Sunday. But come on! The sun is great! Sure, it’s a good idea to take a break from it every now and then, but staying out of it all together just seems like an excuse to stay indoors and watch bad TV.  Instead, why not embrace the outside responsibly? With consistent application of sunscreen (don’t forget the top of your ears!), or by wearing long sleeves and pant legs, you can get outdoors without the risk. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water. Dehydration is just as serious as sunburns.
There’s more you can do for your skin than simply protecting yourself from the sun. Eating cooked or processed tomatoes can help with keeping skin young and healthy, and can actually help protect against sunburns. So maybe cheat a little this year. Get in that sun. Just be smart about it.

But when you work out in the summer, sweat’s pretty much unavoidable. That’s why Champion Athleticwear developed  Champion Vapor Technology. This stylish line is designed to dry faster as your body heat rises so you can always keep your cool. That means you’ll be able to stay comfortable to keep performing at your best. So don’t sweat it, get out and enjoy the sunshine. What gets you outside?

FRESH FRUIT & VEGETABLE MONTH
You probably don’t need a reminder, but it never hurts to take a refresher course on healthy foods. And since June is Fruit and Vegetable month, why not give them their due? We all know that an apple a day can keep the doctor away, but recent studies show that certain fruits and veggies can actually help prevent diseases like cancer and heart disease. Get enough of those, and you could hold off a whole hospital of docs.
But nature’s original candy can also help you get through your day without developing a caffeine dependency. The natural sugars found in most fruits and veggies can give you just the kick you need to ditch the Diet Cola, and dominate your workout routine.

HAPPY BEST FRIENDS DAY!
Best friends are hard to find. But life wouldn’t be the same without them. And if you’ve ever worked out with one you know that it’s better with her than without her. Workouts just don’t seem like workouts when they’re with a friend. They can also motivate you more, keep you accountable and help you reach your fitness goals. So grab your bestie and hit the gym, kick a ball around or go for a jog to celebrate National Best Friends Day on June 8.
