I love potatoes. Straight up, salted, sometimes with butter, sometimes with melted cheese. Fancy au gratin or simple with mayo. No matter what goes on them, potatoes are a healthy, budget-friendly, satisfying food.

A few years ago, my best friend saved my summer sanity by suggesting I put food-quality mint oil in my drinking water. What a difference!

I've also found myself drinking more mint-flavored coffee now that the sun is in force, and am very happy that this leaf found its way into my life.

Blueberries are a sweet summertime treat that are also a helpful weight-loss aid. The juicy morsels are full of fiber, which helps you feel satisfied after eating, and which can help flush out your system so you don't get bloated. They also contain phytochemical C3G, which research suggest may help increase fat metabolism and stir up production of leptin, which decreases appetite.
