Summertime is when we all look forward to longer days, spending more time outdoors, fun at the beach, vacation, BBQs and parties. All of these good times in the hot weather can really heat us up, leaving us feeling exhausted, overheated, drained, heavy and even cranky. Now is a great time to turn to some of summer’s best foods to keep the body and mind cool, light and energetic.
