Summer is the best time to eat raw foods like salads. The next best is lightly steamed or stir-fried vegetables. The Chinese believe that most people have excess “hot chi” in the summer and need cooling foods to balance their chi (energy). Cucumbers and seasonal produce are cooling. I love watermelons because they are so sweet, juicy and cooling. I hope to do a “Balancing the Chi with Food” cooking demo at Whole Foods soon. Keep cool.
I am seeking Corporate Sponsors for my upcoming healthy cooking demos, cooking classes, recipe exchange, e-cookbook and cooking show. I will be attending Slow Food Nation Taste Pavilion in San Francisco on Labor Day weekend. Join the Slow Food movement at www.slowfood.org
