Josh Can’t Cook’s Summer Eats

When he's not soaking up the sun this summer, Josh Schonewolf, host of Josh Can't Cook, is eating his way around Philly (courtesy of Josh Can't Cook)

When the summer hits (feel it?), it’s truly time to enjoy the finer things in life, like scantily-clad tan people sipping mojitos …on a speedboat.

If you’re fresh from a workout and/or feeling thirsty and a bit wiped-out from the heat, er last night, get to the Gayborhood’s Jar Bar. The upstart raw bar has some delicious goodies on the menu, like my favorite – the strawberry- banana smoothie. It’s packed with protein, goji berries, hemp milk – and fruit. Lots and lots of fruit.
