Summer is a time to celebrate with family and friends, a time to nourish yourself and a time to eat seasonally and enjoy every bite. What could be more festive than that? Summer food is naturally bright, light and delicious, and makes the traditional 'summer detox' a much easier prospect. In her trademark down-to-earth style, Lola demystifies the detox concept - this is no gruelling regime, but rather a series of simple steps like upping your fluids, eating more greens, making smart food swaps and cutting down on or quitting alcohol and caffeine for a time. Most importantly, it's about eating light and nourishing wholefood-based meals that really make you feel clear, crisp and fresh. Summer Food is full of festive salads, drinks, brekkies and light treats that will nourish and give your body the energy it needs to thrive. There are also a few easy steps to detox your body and mind that can be easily incorporated into your daily routine. So dig in and kickstart your summer, Lola Berry-style!
