On hot summer days, we often don't feel like cooking or even eating. In fact, we have a bad habit of forgoing lunch or dinner altogether, but this year we've resolved to change that by keeping the juicer, blender, and a bushel of fresh summer produce close at hand.
We don't necessarily advocate drinking your fruits and vegetables in place of a well-rounded meal (or even a salad) but let's face it, sometimes it's just too hot to eat, cook or think!
Here are a few refreshing combinations that incorporate seasonal produce. What are your favorites?
