It’s inevitable that summer is coming, and with that, unbearable heat. However, there are so many activities to do outside and you don’t want to miss out just because you feel overheated. Eat and drink these foods to keep cool and carry on.

Mint

Mint or peppermint both have properties that can cool the body from the inside, and they are long-lasting. The best thing about these herbs is that if they are planted, they grow rapidly and spread so you never have to worry about your supply being low. Add them into all sorts of drinks for added flavor and coolness.

Pomegranate Juice

This stuff is a miracle worker; it is high in antioxidants and also has cooling properties. You can also eat the seeds and have the same effect.

I just love pomegranate season, don’t you?! This pomegranate green tea chia drink is one of my faves from the blog. It’s antioxidant rich, very delicious, and only has a few wholesome ingredients! I used to buy those chia drinks at the store until I realized how easy (and much cheaper) they were to make at home! You can find the simple recipe in the @wifemamafoodie blog archives..link in profile! ❤️❤️❤️ . . . . #pomegranate #pomegranatejuice #chiaseeds #chia #greentea #tea #foodphotography #feedfeed #foodstyling #howiholiday #holidays #wifemamafoodie #vscofood #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #glutenfree #dairyfree #vegan #fruit #chiaseedpudding #chiadrink #homemadefood #thatsdarling #christmas #antioxidants #healthy #paleo #healthyfoodshare #grainfree

Citrus

Fruits that are high in vitamin C, especially citrus fruits, should be consumed often during the summer. Vitamin C has the ability to regulate body temperature, which makes it a great choice to have during beach trips and general outdoor activities.

Watermelon

Watermelon can also help regulate body temperature and have a high water content to keep you hydrated. Try to eat it towards the morning though to digest it better.
