Easy and Light Summer Meals

When summer rolls around and the kids get out of school, who wants to cook? It’s hot and you just want to relax when you are at home. Well, we are not big grillers in this household so I like to make lots of easy and light summer meals and have lots of salad nights. Mix and match salads and easy to throw together earlier in the day recipes that stay well for leftovers or picnics! You know I love my beans, especially as a halfway vegetarian I fill my diet with beans to manage my hypoglycemia.

Here are some easy light summer meals that are quick to throw together and won’t heat up your kitchen!

This Super Quick and Delicious Vegan Black Bean Salad is filling and SO healthy.
