Summer is here! With its hot long days and kids filled with bouncing energy. What a better day to spend a summer day but by the swimming pool. Not only is a very good activity for both little ones and adults alike but it provides a chance to soak in those precious sun rays (always wear sun screen tho) and to have some easy and refreshing food.
We like to keep it simple and fresh at the pool with things like Lemonade, Limeade, Pineapple juice or simply with water. My son doesn’t particularly like plain water so I “spicy up” for him adding lemon wedges, fresh cut strawberries and mint. We do indulge in some salted chips (I try to use the baked variety) or chips and pico de gallo for a crunchy and tasty snack. Fresh fruit such as pineapple chunks or watermelon are perfect to the pool side too! Freeze seedless grapes for a healthy alternative to popsicles, or make your own popsicles at home without the added sugar and nasty additives.
Let me share some simple ideas!

Summer food is easy and uncomplicated. Keep it fresh, full of color and just play with it!
Make Vegetable pizzas on the grill using a Pizza Stone (see bellow) or re-vamp a classic grilled cheese sandwich by filling it with fresh cherry tomatoes and avocado! yum!
