Watermelon and soup? Watermelon as a soup? Watermelon soup for some soup?

What a beautiful weekend we have just had, and well deserved after that bought of high heat earlier last week.  Last week, during our hot spell, I kept coming back to this old recipe that really helps cool you off from the inside out.  I know we have posted this before, but it is worth putting up again. Watermelon and cucumber, the main ingredients in this dish, according to Chinese medicine, are very cooling and can help relieve thirst.

Trust me, this dish is delicious!  And to prove it, we are offering a free package of our beloved Herbal Soup Mix to the first person who makes this dish and posts a picture to our Facebook or Instagram page.  Honestly, it is just that good. Read More

When we sweat more due to the hot humid weather, exercising in the outdoors, or just because that is how we are built, you may notice that you can’t seem to get your thirst relieved, or you may notice continued signs of dehydration even though you are drinking enough water.  When that happens it may be time to try making your own electrolyte water.

This recipe is simple, packed with minerals, and Read More
