Healthy Foods for when Temps Soar


 
A girl can’t survive on ice cream alone, and some days the AC just won’t cut it.
 
Here’s how to beat the heat with the yummiest treats.

 
If ya love…pasta and sauce
Chill with…cold soba noodles
Not only do you avoid a steamy plate, but ya get a dash of spice from the peanut-y sauce that’s proven to help your bod battle the blazin’ temps. Go to girlslife.com for our fave recipe.


If ya love…lemonade 24/7
Chill with…minty water
Lemonade is so yummy, but it’s a sugar-filled sip that shouldn’t be downed daily. Instead, chop up some mint leaves and toss them in a glass of ice water. Add a lemon or lime slice. Ah…super refreshing. 

 
If ya love…a super sundae
Chill with…froyo and fruit
The amount of fat in some icy concoctions is unreal (think: the same as two large fries at McDonald’s). Frozen yogurt isn’t exactly health food, but we’re diggin’ a serving of Häagen-Dazs’ Wildberry loaded with tropical fruit for a treat.

 
If ya love…potato salad
Chill with…cucumber and tomato salad
Buh-bye, mayo. Up the vitamin factor with bright tomatoes and ultra-cool cukes. With a li’l cheese and lean meat, you’ve got a super-chill lunch or a delish side for din. Hit girlslife.com for our make-in-a-minute how-to. 

 
If ya love…chips
Chill with…pickles
These salty-meets-crunchy snacks have a slight cooling effect on your bod. Weird, right? They make a snappy sandwich side instead of greasy chips, which can make you feel bloated and so not psyched for swimming.
