Summer Recipe Faves

Beat the heat with some of my favorite summer recipes.

I don’t know about you but the past few weeks here in New England have been crazy HOT... – I’m talking 90s plus humidity. So how are we supposed to be motivated to make delicious and nutritious meals in these conditions!?

Fret no more. I have rounded up some of my top recipes to help you navigate this heat wave, no matter where you are located.

When looking at recipes and meal planning, here are a few things I look for:

- Balanced meal (healthy fats, proteins and carbs)

- Limited cooking time at low to no heat

- Fresh, seasonal ingredients


I’m not going to overcomplicate this by telling some long story about how summer reminds me of lobster rolls and the smell of the ocean since you’re just going to scroll right to the recipes ;)

I have tagged each recipe with the below lifestyle markers to make it easier for you to identify those recipes that fit with your dietary restrictions, if any.

Vegan (V)

Pescatarian (P)

Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian (LOVG)

Gluten-Free (GF)

Lactose-Free (LF)
