The summer heat is upon us and it is not going to cool down until about October or maybe even November here in the Texas Hill Country. At this time of the year our inclination is to drink lots of cold drinks with lots of ice. But, have you ever wondered what other options are available to you. Have you tried putting slices of cucumber and basil in a water picture or perhaps just filling a pitcher with water and then adding slices of lemon and limes to it for another refreshing drink that is cooling and refreshing. Eating watermelon is also great for cooling the body down and adding much needed water to our system. In China, they put out mung beans water, which will also lower the body's internal core temperature keeping you from having a heat stroke or heat exhaustion. What are some of your favorite foods or drinks that are good for you and help cool you down?
