I can’t speak for anywhere else, but let me tell you, Connecticut is already too hot and humid for my liking. All I want to do is wear sundresses, chug down water, and sprawl out to keep cool. The last thing I want is to make hot meals, day in and day out. So this link round-up is done first and foremost out of selfish reasons. I want more cool meals!
Sometimes it feels to me like there are only a few options for food without heat. Salads are high on that list. As a general rule, I hate salads. It’s not easy for me to put together a salad which is filling enough for me to feel sated from a meal. If I decide I am going to do a week of salads for my work lunches, I start to resent them by around… oh, Tuesday.
For this project I turned to the collective wisdom of the Nourished Living Network as well as some other sources I enjoy to share some of the best cool meals. You can find something for any time of day here: breakfast through dinner, dessert and snacks, and drinks!
Drinks and smoothies
Museli (which I hope to try this weekend)
Roasted gazpacho (okay I lied a little, but it’s worth putting the veggies in the oven to make this one!)
Sides and Salads
Snacks and desserts
Now it’s YOUR turn to share! What are you eating this summer?
