Sweet-n-Sour Chicken Skewers are perfect for any summer outing and will make your BBQ that much better! Cherry tomatoes have always been a family favorite in our home. If you don't have a garden but would like to start, now is your chance! Start off simple by buying a tomato plant at Home Depot, WalMart, or my personal favorite, Costco. Put it in your house by a window, water it regularly, and watch it come to life with juicy tomatoes that you will enjoy all summer long!
When that summer BBQ rolls around, grab some tomatoes off of your plant and make these delicious chicken skewers with them! Your guests will be in awe at how flavorful, tender, and satisfying they are. Take advantage of the fresh in-season tomatoes you can find at any grocery store or from your own garden, if you have one! I'll never forget how my kids would run out to our garden when they were little and eat all the "baby tomatoes" that they could.

Sweet-n-Sour Chicken Skewers are a great way to prepare some of your summer tomato bounty!
1) Sunscreen: We all know this one, we have all heard it, and most of us have forgotten it at some point. I forget this one the most when I am running. I head out the door before the sun is really shining and sunscreen tends to slip my mind. My kids are constantly slathered in the stuff though. I am covered in freckles and have some very vivid memories of crazy sunburns as a child. A couple of years a go I had a chunk removed from my leg, I don't need that repeated.
2) Water: It is easy to get dehydrated out there folks. Keep water handy and drink it lots!
5) Get outside to exercise: Summer is a great time to get out of the gym and try something new. It is also a great time to try and do something with the whole family. "A family that plays together stays together."
There you go, 5 tips to having a healthy summer. Sure, I could have added lots more things to remember and try out this summer, but these are five that I felt were important. Enjoy your summer!
Have a fabulous Fit Friday!
