Are you up for a little challenge? The other day I spotted Adam's fun little idea and I couldn't resist joining in. Well, since August is famous for its lush, rainbow-coloured and juicy heirlooms, peaches, cherries, pears and grapes, how about declaring it a month of no cooking what so ever! Let's make August just about eating as fresh as it gets. It's only fair since summer is way too hot to stand by the oven or over hot cooking pots. So it's time to get lazy this month and eat giant veggie salads, fresh fruit bowls, mozzarella and tomato slices drizzled with olive oil, peaches with Greek yogurt and honey for breakfast and bruschetta on a slice of rustic bread for dinner.
Are you game? If so, here are a few tips to follow: get yourself a box of sea salt, a bottle of quality olive oil, and the good sense not to mess with anything too much. Eat it fresh and lazy. Cheers to August, darlings! xo
P.S: Here are our favourites so far: this peach - avocado salad, this melon salad and especially this arugula - mango bowl of goodness that we had last night.
P.P.S: Plus this nifty trick to peeling peaches like a pro:)
