1. I do not drink drinks with ice. I ask the waiter in advance not to add ice, and if it’s too late, I myself catch the cubes from the glass. Ice-cold drinks that are too cold impair digestion. I also keep juices and lemonades from the refrigerator at room temperature for a while before drinking.
2. I eat greens every day. Summer is the best time to delight the body with a fresh portion of chlorophyll. Spinach, kale, arugula, basil, dill, or garden parsley – the benefits of fresh herbs and green juices are much greater than dry chlorophyll with iherb.
3. I do techno-detox more often. Last weekend I spent 48 hours without 3G and Wi-Fi. Instead of Instagram and YouTube – badminton, scrabble, walking in the woods and reading books in a hammock. Everything that will be remembered for the summer weekend.
4. Strive for simplicity in ingredients and combinations. In summer, you always want to spend less time in the kitchen and opt for simple food. I use seasonal vegetables as the basis of any meal and add whole grains, avocados, eggs or young cheese to them.
5. I eat berries and fruits every day. This principle applies all year round, but in the summer I eat fruit more often. I try to get out to the markets for seasonal fruits and buy berries from my grandmothers.
