Summertime is here and it may be hotter than usual, even though it’s sometimes hard to tell when living in Hawaii! No one likes to use their oven or stove when it’s hot out, and one great way to beat the heat is by enjoying raw foods. The words “raw foods” make many people cringe… until they realize how delicious raw foods can be. Here are some refreshingly raw recipes to enjoy this summer or even year round!

These and other raw food recipes can be found at downtoearth.org.

Feeding your children healthy meals and snacks helps them focus in school and aids in their growth and development.

But it’s possible to have too much of a good thing – and it turns out Americans are eating twice as much protein as we need, thanks in part to our high meat consumption. And meat based protein can increase your chance of developing chronic diseases such as kidney, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
