You may have noticed that during the summer you naturally crave lighter foods or smaller meals. Maybe you find yourself gravitating toward fresh, raw fruits and vegetables in the summer and turning off your stove as much as possible. Beyond your air conditioning bill, there’s good reason to eat with the seasons! The recipes in this book feature some of the best of summer’s bounty—highlighting the superstars of the hottest months in recipes that are (mostly) healthy, very refreshing, and extra delicious. Not only are these recipes plant-based in order to cram as much summer goodness into each recipe as possible, but many of them are incredibly easy, making them a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen this summer. *** The first section of the book features Light and Fresh Meals that are perfect for hot evenings when you want something fast that won’t make you sluggish. These meals are perfect for lunch or dinner, and can be paired with a side for a more substantial meal. The second section features Cool Snacks for Hot Days—mostly small plates that make good appetizers for a party or work as a side dish as part of a larger spread. You’ll find a refreshing summer beverage perfect for a crowd in this section, too. The third section makes use of nature’s summer candy: berries! The Berry Good Sweets features all different kinds of berries in sweet treats that rely on the fruit’s natural sugars. The fourth section, Thrilling Health Grilling, gives you plenty of ideas for a healthy barbecue that includes something for all diets—and might get you grilling something new this summer! The last section, Cooking with Blossoms, might be a surprising find—but edible flowers are one of summer’s delicacies and once you realize all the ways you can include them in meals, you’ll be a fan.
