It’s getting hotter every day here in Houston.  Maybe I notice it more now that my air conditioner in my car is no longer working.  Yeah, that’s right!  I thought Houston traffic was bad, try sitting in it with no a/c. No worries, I’m getting it fixed right away. Luckily I had this for lunch to keep me hydrated and refreshed. An easy cucumber and tomato salad recipe, perfect for these hot summer days.

Something I also noticed about this heat is that, I’m craving more raw foods.  Watermelons, tomatoes, cucumber, pineapple, cantaloupe and of course figs are a lot of my summer favorites.  The sad thing is that my farmers market is closing for a few months.  So me and my husband did what any high raw vegan would do.  We went and bought as much as we could of all the things we love.
