Adding “Easy Ready Meals” into your daily lives….

“Easy ready meals” are not just “Fast food”! By this I mean the type of meals that are made quickly. They are the type of meals that make your lives easier! You can take them with you anywhere and enjoy them any time of day. At the same time, they are also what your body considers “easy meals” because they give you energy without overloading your body with calories. This is what I mean by “Easy ready meals” and the 21st of June may be the perfect time to start adding them to your daily lives.

Why the 21st of June? Well this seems to be the longest day of the year which at the same time also is thought of as the beginning of summer! So there is no better time to say “YES!” to “easy ready meals” since they save time (which you can use to do other things that you may prefer doing), they are nutritious, healthy, delicious and you can take them with you anywhere you want to go… to the park, mountain, beach, fun park… anywhere!!

The secret is of course as much in the recipe make up as well as in the time needed to prepare them and the easy way they can be packed and carried with you. Thank goodness the products designed for this sort of packing and carrying have come a long way so that it is very easy to find the right ones that each person may need. Glass bowls, plastic BPA Free Tupperware in lots of different colors (each family member can choose their own!), glass jars and large glasses with lids that can easily be used to store juices as well as freshly made salads. There are thousands of choices.

Let’s take a look at what kind of recipes could fit it these containers!

Starting off with refreshing, nutritious salads! You can pack them in glass jars and take them with you anywhere in a portable refrigerator or cooler or even isothermic bags if you know that it might be a while before you can eat!
