Eating to beat the heat

I think most people are finding the heat and humidity pretty tiring and it doesn’t make getting a decent sleep easy either. When we are tired it is all too easy to reach for quick fuel – usually carbs.

As always, planning and preparation are key to eating healthily.  Keep it simple. Try kebabs, meat or chicken patties, smoked chicken and hard boiled egg salads, fish on the BBQ – simple, fresh food that doesn’t require too much time in the kitchen.

Remember that you can semi-freeze your yoghurt pottle and it becomes like ice cream. Depending on the size of your freezer, a 150g pottle will take around 60-90 minutes to reach the stage where you can still squeeze the pottle. If you leave it too long the pottle will be rock hard and the yoghurt icy. 

Another dessert idea is to blend berries (frozen raspberries would be delicious) and stir the puree through your fresh or frozen yoghurt for a refreshing dessert.
