Healthy and Happy Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day can be a time for feasting on high calorie sweets and fattening foods and showering mom with guilty pleasures. But it doesn’t have to be. Treating the mom in your life to healthy foods and wellness promoting gifts can be the ultimate way to show her how much you care for her. The staff at Dr. Shillingford’s Boca Raton office for lap band, gastric sleeve, and gastric bypass weight loss surgeries have compiled a list of ideas for healthy Mother’s Day fare and gifts to keep mom her healthiest:

Mother’s Day food ideas:

  • Quiche featuring fresh vegetables (spinach, onions, peppers, tomatoes, asparagus, mushrooms, zucchini, or kale)
  • Grilled or baked salmon with mustard
  • Deviled eggs mixed with mashed avocado
  • Baked or grilled chicken with lemon and fresh herbs
  • Chopped vegetable salad with oil and vinegar dressing
  • Fresh fruit salad (watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries, kiwi, strawberries, mango, pineapple, blackberries, grapes)
  • Dark chocolate covered strawberries

Mother’s Day gifts:

  • Pedometer or activity monitoring watch
  • Personal training sessions
  • Classes for yoga, pilates, tai chi, golf, swimming, or dancing
  • Take her out for a new pair of sneakers
  • Beautiful salad bowl
  • Kitchen gadgets like a juicer or smoothie maker, julienne peeler, mandolin, vegetable grill basket, or water infuser and a coordinating cookbook full of healthy food ideas
  • Offer to accompany or driver her on any doctor’s appointments she has (mammogram, annual physical, therapist, etc)
  • Massage gift certificate

Show mom you love her by contributing positively to her health!
