Summer Daily Menu

Many people asked me about a menu for a day.

I put together a sample menu for summer. I selected cooking styles as well as grains, beans and vegetables that mostly suited to nourish your organs during hot summer days. The menu consists of lightly cooked, easily digested foods which will help your body to balance normal temperature, not get overheated while providing plenty of nutrients.

BREAKFAST

quinoa sauteed veggies

strawberries

pumpkin seeds

LUNCH – EASY to take to work

Tabouleh saladhummusPeach

SNACK 

In case you feel hungry and want to eat something small between lunch and dinner – 1/2 cup of almonds or walnuts is a healthy option

DINNER

beet soup

Tofu barley green beanswatermelon

Enjoy!


Health Tip** For some people summer is associated with barbecue in the middle of a hot day. Eating grilled meat is very stringent for the heart and other organs. Liver gets overheated. People might experience excessive sweating and have hard time being outside to enjoy the sunny day. Refrain from barbecued meat could make a surprising pleasant shift to being able withstand 85+F much more comfortable and easy.

  1. Such vibrant colors and delicious suggestions!! Love your posts and ideas :))
    Thank you.
    Now I understand why I buy extra zucchini and yellow squash almost every week ( I don’t get to make them each time)!! I really like the combination of these two veggies.

  2. Hi Chava,
    I heard from someone that there is a toxin in the beans even the organic ones and even if it’s cooked for a long time!
    Wanted to know if you heard anything like that!!

    • Hi Rivka, I saw this type of opinion in other blogs. I am not aware of any scientific proof to that. Based on everything I learned, I follow the the best practice 1). to buy organic beans in the stores where lots of customers and food in bins get renewed often 2). Buy in small quantities 3). Sort out beans before cooking to remove broken ones.
      Also, it is important to take care of intestinal lining, so the beans are fully digested by healthy intestines. Beans proportionally should be about 10% of a balanced meal where 50% vegetables and 40% whole grains.
      I consider beans as part of healing diet when approached holistically. Sorry for the long answer 😀.
