While the Summer can be lazy and freeing, I don’t know how but we seem to get busy doing all sorts of things. We have this perpetual need to fill our schedule and run, run, run. I do my best to try and slow us down in the summer but I am not always successful. This world likes to busy itself and we tend to follow suit.
One thing that is hard is eating on the run. I don’t like to frequent the fast food lines, or convenient stores. The local fast food joint is not going to provide food for us that is going to fuel our bodies and help keep us going through the summer heat. But something I hate even worse is wasted produce. So I have been making a conscious effort to buy summer fresh lettuces and veggies to have them on hand for us to eat.
I love summer vegetables, the lettuces, cucumbers, tomatoes, are just sweeter and tastier fresh from the garden. The combination of the summer rains and the summer sun makes those veggies irresistible, whether from your own garden or your local store. I don’t want these tasty veggies ruining and going to waste. That’s time and money down the drain. We eat a lot salad in the summer and I want my family to have access to all those important nutrients.
Rubbermaid® Freshworks™ system helps my family maintain a healthy diet while on the run. I can store our salads, and summer veggie haul in those containers and I know that they will last longer and stay crisper inside those containers. This allows me to save time, and money. I am not running to the store everyday and my hard earned dollars are not going to waste. Give Rubbermaid® Freshworks™ a try and you will not be disappointed at the improved shelf life of your summer salad.
Since we have been eating salad quite a bit this summer we have developed an at home dressing that we love! I call it a 3-2-1 Vinaigrette. This is the base and you can essentially add the flavors you like to it and have a tasty, cost effective dressing at home, and its good for you! Give this dressing a try, and put those fresh summer salad in Rubbermaid® Freshworks™system and you will have a tasty on-the-go meal for the rest of the summer!
