Longer days mean
Summertime is perfect for lazy meals in the park, but truly blissful on-the-go eating
requires clever, compact storage solutions to keep snacks fresh and mess-free
hen summer arrives and
the temperature creeps
upward, your spirits also
rise. But these aren't the
only seasonal shifts taking place; your
eating habits change as well.
It's goodbye to the hot soups and
hearty broths that kept your bodies
warm and energised throughout winter.
Instead, it's time to enjoy a range of
avoursome pasta salads, cool yogurts,
and fresh fruit and veg, all washed down
with refreshing drinks.
And these food choices aren't all that
changes; where and when you eat
differs, too. Throughout the longer days,
there's more temptation to reach for
snacks and finger food bet een meals.
And if the weather permits, more people
favour picnics in parks or on patios.
Keeping things fresh
Storing and transporting food isn't
exactly easy in summer - lighter meals
often require a splash of dressing or a
garnish to really come to life.
Once you've bagged up your salad,
pasta, oil and vinegars, a picnic can
begin to feel more like a return trip
from the supermarket.
Another common problem is keeping
food fresh and appealing. Have you ever
packed a wholesome homemade salad
for lunchtime, only to find that by then
Lining your salad drawer
with kitchen roll absorbs
the condensation veggies
generate as they chill,
keeping them crisper
