Light Fare with Local Flair!


Of course, a great burger enjoyed on a breezy patio is hard to beat, but the warmer air calls for lighter fare. In hot weather, your body works harder to digest heavy meals. And sometimes when you think you’re super hungry, you are actually thirsty. Eating fresh, raw fruits and veggies helps keep you hydrated. So, not only does eating less during the summer feel good, it’s good for you!

When you opt to eat out, grab a table on the deck or patio and check out the menu’s salad section for a tasty option that won’t leave you feeling sluggish. Here are a few suggestions for a light meal available at local eateries:
