I'm officially back in the classroom this week so I'm mourning the end of summer. But summer isn't technically over for a few more weeks. Check out this infographic for some of the ways we can savor what's left of it.
Plus here are some summer recipes that I've gathered for you:
Peaches are in season right now. Plus they're a delicious summer fruit, and August is national peach month. Who knew? There's a food holiday for nearly everything. These peach recipes can help you savor what's left of your summer.
Grilled Peach Avocado Salad from I Heart Umami
Easy Baked Salmon with Chipotle Peach Salsa from Cotter Crunch

What's summer without at least one picnic? Make and take these recipes with you to your next picnic or outdoor gathering.
Banh Mi Collard Wraps from The Almond Eater
Golden Raisin Coleslaw from Autoimmune Wellness
Paleo Fruit Tart with Lemon Curd from Little Bits of Real Food
You definitely can't savor summer without a cool, tall glass of lemonade. Traditional lemonade is full of refined sugar. But lucky for you (and your health) I found a few lemonade recipes that don't use that stuff.
Easy Lemonade with Honey from Cook Eat Paleo
Strawberry Peach Lemonade from PaleOMG
Blackberry Lavender Lemonade from Tasty Yummies
Savoring summer without ice cream is nearly impossible as well. At least for me it is. But again, this is a summer staple that's usually a complete sugar bomb. It doesn't have to be. Try these "healthy-ish" ice cream recipes out and let me know what you think.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream from Paleo Running Momma
Instant Keto Mint Chip Ice Cream from The Castaway Kitchen
Fig, Blackberry and Goat Cheese Ice Cream from Ali Miller, RD
If you tried any of the above recipes, I want to know about it. Let me know how they turned out in the comments below.
