Hot Summer Hacks For Living Your Best Life All Year

The season may be coming to a close, but we’re keeping that Hot Summer mindset with us all year long!  Here are some easy hacks for living your best life year-round from Splash Café, Talley Farms, and @DishingItWithAmanda.

1) Hit the Beach with Splash Café

Summer may be coming to a close, but the surf is only starting to pick up in Pismo Beach! Take full advantage of the beautiful Central Coast weather by surfing, going for a beach run, or enjoying a simple leisure day in the sun. Just be sure to wear sunscreen, stay hydrated, and fuel up with some grub and refreshments from Splash Café!

Order ahead online at splashcafe.com and take your food to go for a picnic on the beach or a stroll along the Pismo Pier. Splash + ocean views = an unforgettable combo!

2) Eat Fresh, Local Produce From Talley Farms 

Located just south of San Luis Obispo and about 10 miles inland from Pismo Beach, Talley Farms keeps it fresh with their year-round harvest of locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Every week the farms’ friendly staff members pack boxes of delicious and nutritious produce for all Talley Box members. All of the produce is grown at Talley Farms or within roughly 200 miles of the farm. Boxes can be picked up or delivered on the Central Coast or shipped throughout the Western United States.

Make healthy eating easy and fun! Get a Talley Box shipped straight to your door by signing up at talleyfarmsfreshharvest.com. Boxes come in Original size (feeds 2-5 people) or Junior size (feeds 1-2 people). 

For an additional fee, you can customize your box to include specific produce and speciality items, including Splash Café’s Carrot Pepper Sauce

3) Keep it Hot with Splash Café Carrot Pepper Hot Sauce 

Speaking of… You know it, you love it—it’s Splash Café’s Carrot Pepper Hot Sauce! Add a dash of our hot sauce to all of your favorite foods and you’ll never lose that Hot Summer spice. Fun fact: The peppers used in our sauce are grown exclusively at Talley Farms. The carrot pepper’s slow-burn heat is guaranteed to bring fresh and powerful flavors to any dish. Need some inspo? Check out our blog for some fantastic summer-inspired recipes you’re sure to love!  

Know someone who loves hot sauce but doesn’t live on the Central Coast? Ship a 3-pack of Carrot Pepper Hot Sauce nationwide through Goldbelly.com.

4) Heat Things Up in the Kitchen

Make the most of your air fryer (or finally get around to trying one) with some easy and super tasty recipes from Amanda Weiss, otherwise known as @DishingItWithAmanda! Fun is always the main ingredient with Amanda, a Bay Area foodie with an obsession with her airfryer, margaritas and dim sum. Check her out on Instagram or TikTok for these delish creations: Hashbrown Avocado Toast or Tuna Niçoise Salad with Air Fried Green Beans.

Another Splash Café favorite—Smoky Citrus Spice Rub—makes an appearance in Amanda’s tuna salad recipe, so make sure to stock up on that! For a limited time only, get 10% off our Hot Sauce + Beach BBQ Blend Spice Rubs Gift Pack at Goldbelly.com. Offer expires 8/31/22.
