No-Cook Recipes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Beyond

Aug 11 2017
Let's face it: No one wants to even LOOK at an oven or stove during hot summer months. So here are sixteen recipes you can make without any heat whatsoever. Stay cool...


Start the day in a chilled-out way! Whether you prep your breakfast the night before or throw together your meal in the morning, we've got options...

Lunch & Dinner

The key to no-cook entrees? Buy precooked protein! Ready-to-eat frozen shrimp, pouches of tuna, and cooked chicken strips for the win...

Sides & Snacks

Make a big batch of scoopable salad to snack on throughout the week. Plus, we've got Asian-inspired lettuce wraps, unconventional slaw, and a twist on avocado toast that cuts out the toaster...


Baked goods can take the back burner until fall. For now, keep cool with these dreamy desserts...

Chew on this:

Today, August 11th, is National Raspberry Bombe Day. We think raspberries are the bomb on their own. They're the most fiber-dense fruit out there!
