The WW Guide to Summer

Longer days, higher temps, and fresher fruit can only mean one thing: It’s summertime! To help you make the most of the season, we compiled expert-advice, must-try summer eats, fun summer activities, and more to help you feel unstoppable while still building healthy habits.


How our experts are maximizing summer eating

“Think about using seasonal ingredients to make the most out of your favorite produce items, like adding fresh basil or oregano to salads and pastas or grilling peaches and pineapple for part of your dessert. Summer is also the perfect time to experiment with new herbs, which these Lekue Herb Sticks can help keep fresh! My favorite summer tip: When you've got ripe fruit on hand that's on the verge of spoiling, blend it with bananas to make 2-ingredient ’nice’ cream for a cooling dessert that's extra flavorful—and ZeroPoints!"
