Refreshing foods

It's very hot here sometimes, and as I'm VLC I eat tons of fat. It's not always a lot of fun to eat outside and watching my coconut oil melt. Melted coconut oil tastes horrible for some reason.

That's why I drink aloe vera juice (does anyone else do that) and tons of water. I was just wondering if you have more creative foods/drinks to survive the hot weather.

Yes to the fish/meat "salads" in a lettuce leaf! I make my mayo with half high oleic safflower/sunflower (11g monunsaturated per TBSP) and half expeller pressed, flavorless coconut oil. Tried with Macnut oil but the kids reovolted. I might try 1/2safflower/sunflower and 1/2 mac oil...

zucchini, lemon, mint salad with just a little salt. frozen blueberries, raspberries, blackberries. i make my own popsicles and ice creams/sorbet. seriously, you can freeze anything and make it a rocket pop. cold veggies - seriously, cold sliced roasted sweet potato is tasty!

Not as LC, but I made a lump of chocolatety goodness out of coconut butter, powdered cocoa, a little goat cheese, some shredded coconut and a few dates in the food processor the other night. When I put it in the fridge it set up like good brownie. A few bites of that followed by a small glass of heavy cream and you've got yourself a good high fat and refreshing afternoon snack.

Sucking on frozen raspberries is pretty good too.

When I'm doing ZC/VLC, I usually end up eating a lot of tuna salad and egg salad (with homemade macadamia oil mayo). Cool, refreshing, and wrapped in a crisp lettuce leaf, you can't beat it!

Cucumber salad, sushi (go for the fatty tuna), and unsweetened mojitos can get me through pretty much any heat wave.

Dill pickles, oh well, we really have not much heat waves in the north. :(

Have your coconut oil as a coconut milk/ice slushy.

I'm kind of boring in the drinks department. Water, water and more water in hot weather. As far as foods though, I don't think anything beats fruit. One of favorite treats it to throw some frozen fruit into the food processor with some Greek yogurt. Yum!
