    7 Ways To Eat Healthier Without Even Trying

    Beach season is a week away and that is something you should be excited about.

    1. Master these basic smoothies, then customize them however you want.

    2. Use zucchini to make low-carb versions of your favorite foods.

    You probably know by now that zucchini makes for a pretty great noodle substitute, but that's really just the tip of the iceberg. Hollow out halved zucchini to make "boats" stuffed with your favorite fillings, shred zucchini into tots, or bake it as fries!

    3. Go to your local farmers market for all the fresh berries that are finally coming into season!

    4. Add coconut to homemade sorbet for a dessert that's creamy but packed with fruit and healthy fats.

    Between the fruit and the added sugar, sorbet definitely isn't a health food. But making your own sorbet with in-season fruit and coconut milk is a healthy way to satisfy the occasional sweets craving. Plus, look how pretty.

    5. If sorbet isn't your thing, try these insanely beautiful chia kiwi popsicles.

    6. Try this chicken, sweet potato, and broccoli rabe combo for your weekly lunch prep.
