Do you have varicose or spider veins?
Did you know...
Veins transport blood from the rest of the body to the heart, and they contain one-way valves that prevent blood flowing back to the rest of the body. Varicose veins develop when the valves weaken, allowing blood to pool in the veins instead of being pumped back to the heart.

#SummerRoadTrip #F0amilyVacation #SummerVacation #StayCation
Summer is halfway over-with but there is still time to get away.... Here are a few tips on how to stay healthy while you travel.
1) "Rest Stops" should be active! In between long periods of travel be sure to get up and move around.
2) Snack Healthy... Pre-packing home-made snacks will save both money and calories. TSA Air-Port security allows all NON-LIQUID food to go through security. ALSO- refillable water bottles! The average cost for a bottle of water at the air-port is $4.99.
3) Don't forget to pack active wear. Vacation time is a time to relax and enjoy, but you can also relax and enjoy on the beach while playing Frisbee or paddle boarding.
4) STAY HYDRATED! Last but NOT LEAST. Don't forget to reach for the H2O. Water has no calories, and will help flush your system. Vacations usually consist of unhealthy eating habits, water can help you feel fuller and more alert than that of sugary beverages.
**Summer Cookout Ideas**
Burgers, Sausage, and Steak- Oh My! You don't have to entirely shy away from these, but rather choose healthier versions.
Make a better burger- using leaner beef or swapping the beef altogether for ground chicken, turkey, or even tuna will help save calories and bad cholesterol.
Grilled Steak- Tuna Steak that is! Oily fish such as Tuna or Salmon have great nutritional benefits including omega-3 fatty acids. A little lemon, garlic and or rosemary and you are good to go!
Fries... Let not forget about french fries. How about make them Baked fries? Making homemade BAKED fries is not only healthier but it is also more affordable. Slice white or sweet potatoes into sticks, lightly spray or drizzle EVOO, pepper and paprika and bake for 40 minutes at 375 degrees.
What about dessert???
Ice-pops or homemade frozen lemonade never did anyone any harm... In moderation. Watch for sugar content and enjoy on hot summer days and evenings.
Don't forget to drink plenty of water and stay healthy!
