A Sip of Refreshment
Start your trip to Nugget by popping into our Juice Bar for a refreshing fresh-squeezed lemonade or fresh-brewed iced tea. We think strolling the aisles with one of these cool beverages makes shopping just a little more refreshing.
Slather on; Cool Down
For sumptuous skin hydration plus natural cooling power, try Avalon Organics Peppermint Hand and Body Lotion. Formulated with Avalon’s certified organic herbal blend of peppermint oil and moisturizing glycerin, this cooling lotion leaves skin soft and refreshed.

Sushi a la Salt
We just love a cool piece of sushi when the weather turns stifling. Nugget’s sushi is made fresh daily by our in-house sushi-chefs
Use our Saltware pieces to keep your sushi cool — chill Saltware in the refrigerator until cold, remove and place sushi or sashimi directly on the surface, letting stand 15 to 20 minutes before serving. The salt slabs will cure and season the fish until you’re ready to eat it.
For a decidedly summery cocktail, we suggest an old-fashioned favorite: a gin and tonic, made with Hendrick’s Gin. Hendrick’s is made in small batches distilled in Ayrshire, Scotland, and its maker suggest that their gin be served with tonic over ice garnished with cucumber instead of the traditional citrus.
Health Notes from Dr. Liz:
Cool Off with Food
Stay hydrated and cool during these dog days of summer with some refreshing foods. Your fluid needs can increase several cups daily with the sweltering heat. Besides drinking more fluids, you can hydrate and cool off with food. Nutrition scientists calculate that 20 percent of your daily fluids come from the foods you eat. Hydrating foods such as fruits and vegetables are at least 80 percent water by weight, and in fact, watermelon is 95 percent water (hence the name!).
During cooler months, you should average 4 ½ cups or more of fruits and veggies daily, and now with summer full swing, tack on another 1 to 2 cups. Not only do you stay hydrated, but you get a wealth of key antioxidants vital for immune health and fending off age-related ailments.
Here’s a day’s worth of hydrating foods to include with your meals:
