WatermelonWhen it comes to summer we think BBQ, outside eating, fairs, and friends, right? Everyone is allowed to indulge in foods that are not quite good for them, but we love to eat. The good thing is that summer normally brings us lots of fruits and vegetables that aren’t always available. Why not indulge in these amazing foods that contain lots of health benefits as well!

Sweet Corn – now what says summer better than that? Loaded with the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin which can help against the sun’s damaging rays. These may also lower your risk when it comes to developing age-related macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of blindness in people over 60 years of age.

Tart Cherries – so many benefits from these little wonders. Drinking the juice from these cherries can help you sleep better each night and avoid after workout pains. The tart cherry might also help you slim down! The anthocyanins in tart cherries activate fat burning in our body and decrease fat storage!
