Cool summer foods to beat the heat

Posted Jul 20 2011 9:00am
Good morning, Happy hump day! This summer Chicago heat is insane. The second I walk out the door I immediately start sweating. Here are some of my favorite summer foods that help beat the heat.

Frozen berries
My favorite summer treat!
I always have frozen cherries, blueberries, and grapes on hand. Tastes like candy.

Smoothies There's nothing better than a refreshing smoothie for breakfast, lunch, or snack. I hit up the jamba juice by my office at least twice a week in the summer.

Fro-yo Do I need to say more?
Cucumbers Cucumbers are 95% water which means 1 cup of cucumbers is just 13 calories. Try adding cucumbers to your water to help stay hydrated.

Salads On a hot summer day I usually crave an ice cold salad.
Either a greek, wedge, or cesar (dressing on the side, obvs).
Watermelon I was sitting at the pool the other day and my friend was dying for some watermelon. This fruit is not only amazing on a hot summer day but it's a great thirst quencher and is packed with some of the most important antioxidants in nature.
yum!
Make sure you stay cool and hydrated today, drink LOTS of water, and take breaks if you're outside most of the day.
Have a great day!
