Top 5 cooling foods
Cucumber: It’s edible water
Radishes: Edible water with a zing
Strawberries: A naturally sweet antioxidant breakfast or chop over a salad.
Tofu: This is a funny one, but Eastern Medicine says tofu is so cooling, it can dampen libido—especially in men.
Turmeric: A stress-fighting not-so-spicy spice. It’s awesome!
On fresh chopped cucumbers or radishes I use my absolute favorite condiment, Umeboshi Vinegar (made with Japanese umeboshi plums), which you can find in the Asian foods aisle at Whole Foods. Just a splash and it’s heaven. —Jennifer Kass
