With seasonal heat, summer vacations and various outdoor activities, it’s no wonder so many people struggle to enjoy healthy meals during warmer weather. Fortunately, Cate’s Nutrition Kitchen has 4 summer secrets to eating delicious meals that keep you and your kitchen cool. Not only are these meals quick and easy, but they require little to no cooking!
1. Shake It Up
Shakes are a deliciously cooling option for including more nutrient-dense seasonal fruits and veggies into your daily diet in minimal time.
2. Toss Together a Salad
3. Love Your Slow Cooker
A slow cooker or “crock pot” is perfect for turning tough cuts of meat into forkfuls of tender goodness. Not only is a slow cooker easy to use, but it doesn’t heat up your house or involve dirtying tons of dishes.
4. Invest In a Sous Vide
A Sous Vide provides an easy, hands-off option for cooking meats, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, vegetables and fruits. Sous vide protein is delicious served solo, with steamed veggies, tossed in salads or wraps.
