Hot Summer Pairing

The hot weather is here and we believe your food should adjust to the climate. According to traditional Chinese medicine, there exist “warming foods” and “cooling foods.” "It is said that the cooling foods help to clear heat and toxins from the body, whereas the warming foods increase circulation and raise qi or vital energy,” explains Kerry Bajaj, certified health coach at Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City.

We've all been there, on hot sticky days all we want ice cold drinks, fruit, popsicles and ice cream.  It's very easy to consume a lot of calories in one sitting just in order to 'cool down'.

So we have a solution!

A fresh, cool and tangy salad just like this chickpea, kale, carrot, tomato and cabbage salad from Hearty Catering.  Top with aged balsamic vinegar and olive oil, with a pinch of sea salt and fresh black pepper.

Pair with our Organic Raisin, Rosemary & Pumpkin Seed crisps and voila! There you have a cool, healthy and hearty salad on a hot summer’s day.  Here's to a happy and healthy summer :)
