By Lucy Rose Clinic

January 25, 2022

Are you feeling the heat? Some parts of Australia are sooooo hot right now, but we can support our bodies better by savvy food choices.

Avoid heating foods right now like curries, chili, ginger, etc, and adopt more cooling foods and spices like cucumber, watermelon, fennel, and mint.

This recipe is nutrient-dense, probiotic-rich, and great for weight loss programs – it ticks a lot of boxes!

Bon apatite!
