Take the stress out of cooking and enjoy your summer

It’s officially summer. You may find yourself moving a little bit slower, enjoying the outdoors a little bit more and smiling a lot more. How could you not with warmer temperatures, BBQs and quality time spent with family and friends?

The summer season is NOT the time to stress in the kitchen over your next meal. Don’t get bogged down by complicated recipes or ridiculously long prep times. These 7 easy weeknight summer dinners require minimum time and effort from you but are sure to impress.

Why should I eat fresh this summer?

We’re all busy- between work, family and other commitments it’s easy to see why many people can put healthy eating on hold. However, in the summer months, there’s no excuse! Many more vegetables and fruits are in season, which can give you dinnertime inspiration. Plus,  it’s so much easier to eat loads of different vegetables and fruits when you know they’re fresh!

When vegetables and fruits are in season, they’re better for you. When you add preservatives and chemicals to keep packaged goods from going off, you’re no longer eating the freshest veg you could be.
