7 Easy No-Cook Recipes To Beat The Summer Heat

7 Easy No-Cook Recipes To Beat The Summer Heat

The heat of summer can often inspire general fatigue. All you want to do is live in a safe haven from the dry or humid heat. Often times, this is your home, which begs an important question. Why should you spend time baking food in the oven or spend hours over the stove cooking meals? Not only does this make your air-conditioning work harder, but it also causes you to lose interest in the hot food. What can be done?

If you’re looking to beat summer heat, try your hand at some no-cook recipes. Instead of a hearty stew, consider a refreshing salad with summer fruits and vegetables. Avoid heavy dairy desserts that cause bloating and opt for homemade sorbets that cool you off. Lettuce wraps, smoothies, raw soups, and vegetable noodle recipes are lighter, cooling meal options. They won’t weigh you down or cause sweating, unless you kick up the spice level

The following recipes are all raw vegan, meaning that they are great for anyone participating in one of the many Dherbs cleanses. If you are not ready to transition to this type of eating plan, feel free to add pre-cooked legumes to your salads or entrees. If you opt for canned legumes, please pay attention to ingredients labels. Many of these canned varieties can easily cause people to exceed the recommended daily amount of sodium. Fortunately, there are sodium-free or low-sodium varieties that are much healthier options. 

To start you on your no-cook summer meal marathon, here are seven recipes that will keep you feeling fresh in the summer heat.
