      Lite Bites That Fill You Up

      If the summer heat zaps your energy and your appetite, you’re not alone. Our bodies process food at a slower rate when it’s hot, meaning we aren’t as hungry as usual. As well, the brain is trying to regulate all of the processes that keep our bodies cool and just doesn’t prioritize the appetite like it usually does.

      When you need to eat but don’t quite feel like it, or just need some lighter bites that feel as refreshing as they are filling, give these quick, easy, summer recipes a try.
