OKG 7 light eats for the summer

Don't let the heat weigh you down!


OKG7 Dining

Jenn Scott
Your indulgently flavored meal doesn’t have to be a splurge when it comes to counting calories. Besides, with the upcoming heat, fresh and lighter dishes are more appealing. If you’re adding in the greens, don’t assume that means you’ll be opting for blasé.
