Diet And Season

With upcoming summer we are to experience a change to the diet. Switching in between cold and warm weather can be sometimes tricky for our body that needs some time to adjust. When we are thinking about the diet suitable for summer we might also think about the law of opposites and it’s application. Typically when there is hot outside we are inclined to eat diet rich in fruits and vegetables with as little cooking as possible. This diet typically includes plenty of raw vegetables, fruits, salads, dips, cold soups, fruit and vegetable juices. During summer months the meal preparation time also shortens. With little meal preparation time we preserve and deliver rich nutrient in the most natural state of being to the body.  Fresh fruits and vegetables including cherries, apricots, nectarines, melons, grapes, various berries, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, variety of lettuce and greens, deliver abundance of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and enzymes and water rich in electrolytes that cools down the body and helps to adjust to summer heat.  For a summer breakfast  you can try to make a quick fruit salad mixing strawberries, blueberries and peaches and top them with a little lemon juice and maple sirup. For a quick summer lunch a quinoa salad with peppers, tomatoes, sesame seeds, lemon juice and cilantro makes a refreshing addition to a side of beans.  And what is better than to enjoy a warm summer night on a patio or terase with friends and family over a light gaspacho soup followed by a steamed fish with fresh salad and tiramisu.
