What Does Your Body Need?
I don’t know about you but it’s been crazy trying to make peace with this intense heat and humidity!
There are lots of ways to balance the summer heat: Early morning nature walks, getting in or on the water, spending the day indoors and lounging in the brilliance of A/C or thinking cool thoughts.
Of course, a far more delicious way to stay cool during the dog days of summer is to enjoy cooling foods.
Enjoy this 5 minute super easy recipe!
