Just a few things to beat the heat right now, and it starts in the kitchen.

Eating and Drinking to Stay Cool.

                                Drink lots and lots of water

Stay hydrated. Water is essential for keeping you cool during hot weather. 

Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink. 

Stay away from sugary drinks such as sodas

They decrease the ability of your body to store water. Alcoholic drinks, coffee, and caffeinated drinks, which are natural diuretics, aren't good either.

Make food without using the oven or stove. 

Find foods that don’t need to be cooked, or don’t need heat to be cooked. Your microwave should be your firend right now.

Choose cooling foods. 

Fruits and Vegetables have water in them, so it makes sense that they are good for you right now. Add cucumbers, mango, cilantro, watermelon, zucchini, and pineapple to your summer grocery list.

Avoid certain foods.

Just don't eat things that make you hot, like HOT soup.
