Time To Cool Off!


Share this post

What month is it?  June?  Could have fooled me.  Here in Houston it feels like late July or August.  With the temperatures already rising in to the 90’s with heat indexes in the 100’s, I know I’m looking for ways to stay cool.  This also matters when it is time to prepare a meal.  I just do not like the thought of standing over a cook top or starting up the oven.

That is why I was excited when John (my husband) spotted this recipe in this month’s Runner’s World – Watermelon Salad.  This recipe combines a few of my favorite things – watermelon, feta cheese, and greens.  It was quick to make, and did not require any heat.  It would also be a great meal for Meatless Monday.  And, it was surprisingly filling.  That’s a win-win-win in my book.

Give it a try and let me know what you think?  And . . . are you trying Meatless Mondays?  If so, drop me a line and let me know how it is going.

My goal is help you take control of your triggers so you can lead a normal life. I’ve had Irritable Bowel Syndrome for over 14 years. I’ve been told, “It’s all in your head.” And, “You just need to figure out what’s causing your symptoms” without being provided any help to figure it out. I’ve finally gotten my symptoms under control. I want to help you do the same thing. I want to help you get your life back.
