Its March in Ontario, yet ranging from 20-30 degrees at the moment. I need some recipes we can eat that aren't hot or at least don't work your body up into a sweat. Preferably low carb, high fat and child/adult friendly.Cold foods would be preferable.

I do this! Sometimes I did mine recently with coconut amino acids and minced sauteed ginger and onion. I also steam my broccoli in the pan because for some reason I still don't trust microwaves. Great suggestion, hot or chilled, +1.

I know, it's a freaking heat wave (I'm in Montreal)!! Do you like gazapacho? Little early for tomatoes, but still nice and refreshing. I defrost prawns, fry them in a little butter, and float them in my gazapacho for some delicious fishy-ness. You can make the soup in the blender, so it also great because doing dishes when it's hot sucks too. Here's an easy recipe for gazapacho:

I always get on a salad kick when it is hot out, but my mom LOVES "farmers lunches". She makes a big plate of deviled eggs, then chills them. Then you just put on a platter the eggs, some cured meats/sausages, chunks of cheese, grapes, olives, maybe some arugula (if someone wants to make theirs a salad), and good quality olive oil with reduced balsamic vinegar to drizzle over the whole lot. Add some raw veg on the side, and it's a meal that is not too heavy, nice and cold, and good for all ages. Here's a basic recipe for deviled eggs, if you don't care about presentation skip the pastry bag, just spoon the yolks back in:

Here's a nice cold desert, avocado chocolate pudding, for a family-friendly paleo sweet-tooth dish:

I just made this tonight as a light dinner. Can be served warm, room temp or cool (but not cold--the bacon grease would solidify).

1 pkg shredded broccoli (aka broccoli slaw)

1 lemon, juiced

4-5 strips of low-sodium bacon

salt & pepper

Recipe

  1. Cut bacon in half and pan fry until crisp

  2. Steam broccoli in microwave for 2.5 minutes

  3. Reserve grease from pan, add lemon juice, and place in freezer 5 min. to cool (can also place the bowl of broccoli in there, if you want a cooler salad instead of room temp)

  4. Crumble bacon over broccoli, drizzle dressing over everything, season to taste.

Can also add other tasty items such as onion, dried fruit, nuts, etc, such as those suggested in this Broccoli Slaw recipe

How about things like egg muffins or a crustless quiche? Or you could make pate?

I've been making a lot of salmon ceviche. I just cube salmon and marinate 7-12 hours in lime juice, salt and onion. You can add any veggies/herbs after marinating and I usually drizzle olive oil before eating. Great hot weather food.
