6 Foods to Beat the Heat

Cool off from the inside out

Staying cool all starts with what you’re eating. Here are some suggestions on how to stay cool and refreshed during these hot summer days.

Refreshing Juice and produce

 

CITRUS FRUITS

Oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruits are a few citrus fruits that are full of vitamins and antioxidants that leave you feeling refreshed every time you eat them. Whether you use them to make a fruit salad, eat them on the go, infuse your water, or make a vinaigrette, the possibilities are endless. You are sure to feel exceptionally cool after incorporating these fruits into your diet.

WATERMELON

Nothing is better than biting into a fresh, juicy piece of watermelon. It has water in its name so it must be refreshing, and it will keep you hydrated. Eating the watermelon alone or throwing it into a salad should do the trick.

CUCUMBERS

These cool guys are full of water and important vitamins and nutrients. Cucumbers are the perfect addition to any salad, and you can also enjoy them with your favorite dip. They are sure to revive you after spending the day in the summer sun.

MINT & CILANTRO

These two herbs have a natural ability to leave you feeling cool after eating them. Incorporating these flavors is the perfect option to add some excitement and refreshment to any dish.

GREENS

Make yourself a fresh salad this summer by incorporating some leafy greens into the mix like iceberg lettuce, spinach, collard greens, and arugula. These greens are high in water content, which makes them a perfect choice. There are other ways to enjoy these greens as well, such as putting them in your favorite sandwich or mixing them into your smoothies for some extra nutrients.

FROZEN FRUITS

Freezing your favorite fruits can be the perfect (and healthy) snack to help you cool down on a hot day. Eating them on their own, throwing them into a smoothie, or making fruit-infused water are great ways to stay refreshed and hydrated. Why not try blending watermelon, peaches, grapes, lime juice, and seltzer into a slushy mixture you can easily freeze into sweet and yummy frozen ice pops.

Don’t forget Buddy’s Thomcord Seedless Grapes!

Thomcords are a hybrid of Concord and Thompson grapes. They have the intense, rich flavor of the Concord and the sweet, crisp bite of the Thompson — all without the seeds. The perfect healthy snack.
