Today, June 21st, 2017 is the summer solstice. It marks the official start of summer and longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. With things heating up here are some warm weather eating tips:
- Eat more raw food.
- Take advantage of the abundance of in season fruit and vegetables.
- Help your hydration by eating more juicy fruit (not the gum).
And for some solstice themed food…
BBQ, grills and thrills. Bonfires and sun celebrations characterize some summer solstice rituals. Join in the spirit by grilling some veggies and trying a BBQ pulled jackfruit sandwich with some cooling coleslaw. Recipe to follow…
Or perhaps you’re more sweet than spicy. Roast some vegan marshmallows over the bonfire and squish between two graham crackers with chocolate shavings. Please sir, can I have s’more?
For a traditional libation, try some mead. Many liquor stores now stock it or you can make your own.
