Cool Food for Hot Times

cool food for hot times

The other day the kids and I headed out to the park to enjoy the first really hot day of the season.

As soon as it starts to heat up outside, I find my appetite waning for cooked and hot foods. I want watery, cold things.

When it’s summer it’s too hot to cook. Who wants to heat up the house with the stove or oven?

You know what I had for lunch AND dinner?

A super cool Mexican layered dip, served with organic corn chips.

(And a side of watermelon.)

It had guacamole, chopped green onions, sour cream, black beans, diced tomatoes or salsa, sliced black olives, and shredded cheese.


We had a lovely park in the picnic.

What do you like to eat when it’s hot out?

    Strawberries, raspberries, watermelon… its all about fruit when it is hot. Salads are good too though!

    I like sliced tomatoes sprinkled with olive oil and herb salt. Yummy!!

    Tomatoes, straight out of the garden.

    Cucumber slices with nut butter/tahini.

    Raw coconut ice “cream.”

    Of course, gotta agree with Tiffany on the fruit thing. ;-)

    Celery sticks, carrot sticks with dips. And yep, the fruit option always a good one.

    Hard to think of Summer. We’re having a very cold, foggy Winter’s day over here. I’m loving it.
