Summer is almost upon us, bringing with it endless days of sunshine, hot weather, and warm weather foods.
Today we’d like to turn the blog post over to you, dear readers, and learn a bit about your summer diet plans. Not diet as in “losing weight”, but rather foods that you enjoy preparing and eating during the hot months.
Please fire away in the comments below, with ideas and recipes for dishes and drinks that are healthy, tasty and easy to make. Make sure to vote on other people’s suggestions.
Later this afternoon we’ll update this post with the most popular suggestions.
