Lately a few of us around the Crowdtap office have been feeling an odd shift come over our eating patters and cravings. Suddenly we’re…not hungry. And it’s freaking us out. We are NEVER not hungry, so what exactly is going on?
We’re choosing to blame it on the heat. It’s been pretty darn humid in New York over the past week or so, and it’s really messing with us. We don’t really feel like cooking, or eating anything that needs to be warmed up, or doing much of anything, really. But we do want to eat good food, we do! And we want to be satiated! In this time of crisis, we turned to our Tastemakers for help. Thankfully, they delivered.
All the fruity goodness in Rose’s fruit salsa is enough to make us weep, even from just a photo! We can almost just taste the sweet, summery bliss of blueberries mixed with apples, strawberries, and peaches—the perfect mixture of crunchy and sweet. Grab her recipe here!
Did someone say no bake cheesecake? Jessica of Coffee and Crayons did, and we sure are grateful. Her fruit-filled recipe combines cream cheese, fresh fruit, lemon juice, and vanilla extract, and she loves enjoying it out on the porch with her hubby. Sounds pretty dreamy to us.
If you’re not feeling your sweet tooth this month, hopefully you’re feeling a zest tooth. (Is that a thing? We’ve just made it a thing). Jazmin calls her tomato, cucumber, and onion salad “summer in a bowl” and suggests to pair with something served fresh off the grill!
What’s that we hear? Our appetites might just be calling…
