Summer Eating

I don't know about you, but when it's hot, all I want are cool, refreshing foods.

 Lately, my days have been filled with green smoothies



And more salads,

 And lots of dips, like black bean dip, hummus, and guacamole

I worked last night, so this afternoon I woke up and wasn't even feeling that hungry. It is hot, hot, hot here in Charlotte, and humid as well, so that might have played a part in curbing my hunger. Two hours after waking up I made myself a green smoothie: banana, two strawberries, spinach, and almond milk:

If you're new to the blog and haven't heard about green smoothies, you can read about them here, where I explain what they are, or here, where I include wheatgrass pills in the discussion and go further into how good green smoothies are you for you. In addition, if you wanted to learn more about the wheatgrass pills that helped me conquer my addition to coffee and continue to help me stay alert through the night, click here!

 The Boyfriend went to the Farmer's Market for us today while I was sleeping. He returned with beaucoup amounts of fruits and veggies:

And I packed a large, colorful salad for my lunch tonight at work:

This blog has the potential to get extremely slack-on-food for the summer considering all I want are fruits, vegetables, and smoothies. However, we do have some plans in the working that could make 2011 the most fun year yet, so while I won't be blogging about food, I will be blogging about fun trips and adventures we take!

 Do you find yourself not wanting heavy meals in the summer, like pasta and rice dishes? For me, I usually want smoothies, icees, salads, and cool fruits.

 Do you have any fun plans for the summer? I'm not going to jinx our plans and announce them just yet, but we do have a few trips up our sleeve that would be really fun to go on!

 I'm heading into work for night #2 of 3! Have a great night!
