May Healthy Food Holidays for Weight Watchers


WW Recipe of the Day: Fun Healthy Food Holidays in May

To stay motivated with my healthy eating and weight loss/maintenance goals over the long haul it’s important to keep things fresh and fun. Otherwise it can be too easy to get stuck in a rut and revert to old habits.

So I’m always looking for inspiration – new recipes, personal challenges, themed meals and the like, to keep life in the healthy kitchen interesting. 

Which brings me to today’s post. The month of May is filled with National Food Holidays that can help to make healthy eating fun.

I hope they provide you with the inspiration to mix things up and try something new.
