Diet for a Hot Planet

A recipe article published in CoEvolution Quarterly in 1975

Particularly cooling foods to nibble, slurp or sip during a heat wave:
Other melons: honeydew, cantaloupe, casaba
Watery tropical fruit: papaya, pineapple, passionfruit
Radish or daikon
Fresh mint leaves or iced mint tea
Young coconut water
Raw non-starchy fruits and vegetables (sliced or as salads)
Raw vegetable or fruit juices

Avoid: Alcohol and caffeine (they dehydrate you), dairy, meat, nuts, spices (warming)

Drink lots of pure water, of course. That’s your main line of defense against heat exhaustion.
