    How does summer affect your eating and cooking habits?

    I tend to cook less and eat more cold foods, fruits and raw veggies in the summer.  If I do cook, it's outside on the grill or fire pit so I'm not heating up the house!

    We do lot of barbecues, and go on picnics. Less cooking, lots of ice cream smile

    I don't like eating heavy foods in the summer. I eat a lot of salads and drink self-made juices

    I agree about eating more cold foods such as salads and I cook more on the grill.  We tend to eat later in the summer.  I guess because it stays light longer and we can do things outside later.  In the winter its hot foods like soups and much earlier in the day.

    I eat alot more salads and less 'comfort foods'. I tend to drink less coffee and more water.

    I eat a lot more fruits and veggies (they're in season!) and like others said below, tend to eat them raw.  I also like to grill out, and try to avoid using the stove/oven on very hot days! I definitely second those who said icecream! I eat a LOT of icecream in the summer.

    In the summer time I prefer to eat light foods and more salads.  Also in the summer I do not want to use the oven because it heats up the house while the air conditioner is trying to cool it down.

    In the winter time I want the "comfort food" like a hearty beef stew, homemade meatloaf or a hearty casserole baked in the oven.  Running the oven in the winter also heats up the kitchen a bit, which, when cold outside, is welcomed.

    in the summer our cooking is grill oriented as well as fresh vegetables and lots of different salads and corn on the cob. It's all lighter and fresher. In the winter we cook a lot of comfort foods, like roasts and lasagna etc. The change of seasons here in the Northeast beckons differents menus and all are welcome!
