How To Stay Cool (And Drop A Few Pounds) With Natural Foods This Summer

Are you wilting? Living in New York City can be tough on a girl’s hair in the summer. Humidity, heat and shvitzing not only make my ‘do a frizzy mess, but I get cranky, tired and crave cool things to help me get relief.

Rather than reaching for the bucket of ice cream, an expensive iced soy latte or a caffeine filled iced tea, try adding in more of nature’s natural coolers throughout your day. These foods will quench your thirst, cool your internal fires, and help you drop a few pounds if you load up on these instead of the potato salad at the Labor Day picnic!

    Congrats on the book signing at Powell’s. ;) This book does sound amazing. I am a nursing student and have a hunger for knowledge in regards to anything helpful for our bodies.
