Good Morning.  It's great to embrace the fun and comforts of summer at any age (remember as a kid the anticipation of summer's arrival).

Some summer foods that help you to enjoy and create summer memories and are  healthy as part of the 'clean eating' plan are: 1) watermelon (conjures all kinds of memories of seed spitting contests and giggling), 2)  homemade popsicles (get a freezing mold, mix plain flavor or  flavored yogurt, add fresh berries or banana, and freeze.  You can also make with fresh squeezed lemonade, apple cider, or mango juice and freeze.  It's that easy to make 'clean eating' treats.  3) Freshly sliced tomato or corn.  The freshest, homegrown varieties don't even need salt!  4) Gazpacho *( see recipe below or find link on recipe page).  A blending of summers best flavors.  5) Brew fresh tea out in the sun in a big glass container.  Used flavored decaf tea or add fresh mint or lemon with ice.  Kick back in your aderondack chair and enjoy!

*****

Gazpacho- (family recipe)

3 cups tomato juice
3 tablespoons Olive oil or veggy oil
3 large tomatoes, peeled and seeded
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
1 small onion- cut up
1 small green pepper, cut up
1 ear fresh corn- cut off the stalk
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 natural sea or kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper salt
1/2 cup ground whole wheat bread crumbs
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

In a covered blender at high speed, blend all the ingredients ( I personally like a bit of chunk in my gazpacho so I pull out 1/2 cup medium chunked cucumber, green pepper, corn and add after it has been blended.  If you like your soup smooth, skip this step) until blended.  Put into a large bowl; cover and chill.

Because this is a homemade recipe I don't have a calorie breakdown, but I think a 1 cup serving is probably around 110 calories, its really all vegetable and defiantly qualifies as clean eating!
