The taste of summer: freshness tips for at home and on the go
Summer, sun, staying cool: it can get pretty hot during the summer months. Emsa’s practical tips and culinary pointers will make sure you stay cool as the temperatures soar.
It’s particularly important to drink plenty of fluids in the summer months. Infused water makes drinking water fun: simple ingredients from the fridge such as cucumbers, lemons, ginger and mint are an easy way to turn water into a real taste experience. Emsa’s Flow cooling carafes won’t just make it look good: they also feature an integrated cooling element to keep infused water pleasantly cool.
Instead of heavy meals, it’s a good idea to eat light snacks throughout the day in summertime. Fruit, vegetables and salad are the perfect way to make sure you stay hydrated. Not only is salad prepared in a jiffy in one of the colourful Superline salad bowls with lid; you can also serve it straight from the bowl when it’s done. Transporting your snacks will be no problem at all in the Superline Colours food storage containers.
Summertime is fruit time. Pineapples, watermelons, honeydew melons and other tropical fruits provide that all-important vitamin boost and are a fantastic source of hydration due to their high water and mineral content. To make sure the fruit stays fresh for as long as possible, it should be stored under airtight conditions: fruit kept in the 100% leak-proof and hygienic Clip & Close food storage containers scientifically is proven to stay fresh for a remarkably long time.
fruit and vegetables are richest in vitamins and minerals before cooking, so you should try to eat them raw more often if you can.
Ice, ice, baby!
Frozen yogurt is the treat for summer and makes a refreshing alternative to mass-produced ice cream, which often contains a lot of added sugar. Keep it nice and cool on your way to a picnic or the beach in the Travel Cup vacuum mug. Coffee also tastes great served iced cold in the summer: the Travel Mug thermo mug keeps chilled drinks like iced coffee cold for up to eight hours.
