Keeping Cool at the Co-op


Here we are deep in the heart of the “Dog Days” of summer. There is so much fun in the sun to be had right now, it is hard to know what to do! Whatever it is that you are planning this week, we can help you beat the heat. 

 Did you also know that certain foods can help to keep you cooler? According to the Farmer's Almanac article, Natural Ways to Keep Cool When It's Hot, mushrooms, citrus, lemon balm and mint can all help the body regulate its temperature, thus keeping you cooler. They go on to say that even though there is a heat component to spicy foods, they can actually help you cool down by causing the body to sweat more. So bring on the spicy Pad Thai!  

We all know that staying hydrated is key to keeping cool. The recommendation is at least a half gallon of water throughout the day. We can help you meet that goal with a new Klean Kanteen insulated bottle. If you are looking for some beverage options beyond water, we have some seriously refreshing savings for you right now!

GT’s Organic Kombucha is on sale for 2/$5, now that’s a sale you don’t want to miss. Have you tried Wtmln Wtr, which is a cold-pressed watermelon juice? It really is summer in a bottle and is 2/$6 right now. C2o Coconut Water is also on sale this week. If you want to get creative, these Watermelon Strawberry Lime Coolers are a kid-friendly summer cocktail that everyone is sure to love. If you are looking for more of an adult beverage these Watermelon Mint Frosé are delightful. You can also substitute coconut water, ginger ale, or apple juice for a family-friendly version. 

 Don’t forget about the Grain Train Market Cafe’s amazing smoothies! Come on in and let us make you one! Keep an eye out for our daily summer drink specials too. Yum! 

Until next time, keep cool and we will see you at the Grain Train!
