I have been a vegetarian since my late teens and back then it was not easy to find ways to get all the nutrients I needed. These days the food choices for us health food lovers is plentiful particularly here in Los Angeles. We get organic veggies delivered to us a couple of times a month and grow what we can in our own garden including the gorgeous tomatoes you see in the salad above.
I have instilled this healthy lifestyle into my son and husband although they have not turned full veg yet. Our healthy eating also includes healthy drinking and staying hydrated during the hot summer months isn’t always easy. With a 10 year old in the house we like to keep plenty of S. Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral water on hand its a great alternative to flat water and obviously way healthier than sugary soda. Mineral water is an easy way of giving your child something that they think is a treat but is actually healthy, especially if you add a squeeze of lemon!
Summer means lots of hiking, biking & trips to the beach for us where we will either pack our own healthy picnic lunch or grab some take out from favorites like Poke Bowl or Organic Mexican fare and we always grab some chilled S. Pellegrino for the road. We prefer the glass bottles since they stay cold longer and are perfect for the beach or drinking in the car while en route to your favorite summer hangout.
