With the hot sticky weather coming back this weekend, here are a few things to add in to your Summer menu to keep you cool…
Lemons- You know to drink lots of water in the heat, so why not add a squeeze of refreshing lemon juice to your water to shake things up?
Blueberries/Strawberries- Add them to smoothies, salads, yogurt, or just eat them on their own! Summer berries are packed with antioxidants, which can actually protect your skin from the sun.
Cilantro- You’ll feel a cooling effect as soon as you taste it! You can put it in stir-fries, soups, or tacos.
Cucumbers- It’s made up of mostly water, so obviously it will keep you hydrated and cool. Add them to sandwiches or salads for a refreshing crunch. Or switch up your plain water, by adding some cucumber slices.
Watermelon- Not only is it a classic at a Summer picnic, it’s also mostly made up of water, cooling you down instantly.
