There are plenty of things to enjoy about summer. From the warmth of the sun to planned (and spontaneous) vacations, summer is teeming with life. If you’re not careful, however, summer can quickly turn dangerous, if not deadly. Practicing proper summer safety extends beyond being wary of food poisoning, though.

While we’ll touch on that in the accompanying slideshow, we’d also like to teach you about foods to look to in order to lower your body temperature in the summer heat, ultimately increasing your healthiness and happiness.
Lowering body heat, maintaining healthy hydration levels, and trying new things can all help you welcome summer the right way with health in mind.
