Summer is upon us and the hot, humid days are dictating the way we dress. My guess is that until September you will mostly be opting for simpler and lighter pieces instead of putting on layers of sweaters and coats. Because my approach to food is through fashion, I would like to propose that we: EAT THE WAY WE DRESS!
When the heat index is high, focus on simpler, lighter meals that cool down your body. Choose options with fewer ingredients and try to eat foods in their natural, unprocessed state.
After all, if you don't want to wear heavy clothes because your body will sweat outside, why would you want to eat heavy meals that will heat up your body inside?
SUMMER EATING IDEAS:
Breakfast: During the summer I like to indulge in tropical fruits such as jackfruit, lychees and champagne mangoes. Enjoy an assortment of your favorite cooling fruits, create decadent smoothies or try cold coconut yogurts.
Fabulous Eating Tip: Fruit is best when eaten alone. Melons should always be eaten by themselves and not combined with anything, for proper digestion.
Lunch/Dinner: Treat yourself to a gourmet salad with the freshest, high-quality organic ingredients. Then accessorize your meals with sprouts or sea veggies such as dulse or kelp to boost your mineral intake and add flavor. Just like you create your own original fashion style, create your own delicious masterpiece with each meal! For recipes, sign up for my newsletter by clicking here.
Snacks: Keep your cool by snacking on juicy fruits, sorbets or iced smoothies.
Drinks: To stay hydrated, sip on young coconut water. Because 1 cup of this delicious drink has the potassium of 1.5 bananas, it can keep bloating away and help you achieve the a slender beach body!
Fabulous Eating Tip: Buy local produce that's in season and you will save extra money and support local economy.

One of my favorite Disney movies is Beauty and the Beast. Little girls from an early age are taught to look through the looks and love people for who they are. I think we all consciously try to do that. Except for one person. In my line of work I often see women who can't fall in love with themselves. Continue reading here.
