July Seasonal Suggestions and Reminders

By -

July is national Blueberry Month! Sweet, juicy and packed with phytonutrients, blueberries are good for your heart, skin and bones. Eat them by the handful while they are in season.

Check out ELmag.com/blueberries for unconventional recipes.

While we are enjoying the plethora of outdoor activities this month, beware of the mosquitos!

There are a few common sense ideas to ward them off:

Do not wear perfumes

Eliminate activities around standing water

Wear a bug repellant that does NOT contain DEET. Most of these natural products contain ingredients using: lemon grass, eucalyptus, rosemary, citronella and peppermint. These products are easily found on the web. I personally like Skin So Soft.

 I hope you all have a fun, safe and relaxing Fourth of July holiday. Enjoy your loved ones, exercise and eat the many natural pleasures of this month.
