Recipe for summer packs tips for staying cool with salads,

As the summer continues, and the heat rises, I am discovering new ways to stay cool.

With a recent trip to the 30A area, during that very hot couple of weeks in North Florida, and after eating a rich (and delicious) meal and drinking wine, in outside seating; I found myself overheated, uncomfortable and agitated.

Can you relate? There is no escaping that awful feeling in the moment. Feeling heavy and out of sorts, I decided something had to change. It was time to enact a new summer diet and lifestyle ASAP. One that would leave me feeling light, cool, and hydrated instead of full, hot, and flustered.
