I’ve thought a great deal on what I’d like to do this summer. Of course, it would have to fall into my new eating plan and it would have to be something that would continuously tantalize my taste buds during the heat of the summer. What better way to beat the heat than with a crisp cool, though sometimes spicy, gazpacho. I have picked seven gazpacho recipes to try this summer, along with seven cold salads and seven healthy easy desserts.
I realize there are thirteen weeks in the summer. I create a menu and cook for a few local friends every other week. Therefore, there are 6 other weeks. I do have plans for those also, but the recipes I want to make are not readily vegan. So, I will need to adjust and create new recipes. I will share them with you as the weeks come. They will not be part of the gazpacho series, though.
Below is the menu for the summer.

The new eating plan was tough this week. I got kind of lost and cheated a few days and the numbers show it. I will do better this week. My last weigh in was 192 and this week it was 189.8. So, I lost 2.2 lbs. I have learned from my mistakes and I move on.
