Man, it is hot today in the northeast! We’re talking school closing, cooling stations, and heat advisories.
Hot days call for cooling foods. 100-degree days are not really the time to dig into a bowl of soup. Here’s a list of some foods that can help you feel cool from the inside out:
- Fruits like watermelon and other melons, apples, pineapple, strawberries, grapefruit, bananas, tomato, and the like.
- Veggies—especially lettuces, cucumbers, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower and water chestnut.
- Cold foods like yogurt (frozen or not) and ice cream can be refreshing too, but keep portions in check.
- And remember to stay hydrated!
Stay cool, guys!
