In the summer, everyone wants to enjoy the warm days and do lots of outdoor activities, especially with the ones you love. So let’s pack the tablecloth and picnic basket and gather together with family and friends. Here are some tips to help you prepare your meals safely, to avoid the hassle caused by food poisoning and especially so as not to forget anything.
If you plan to hike or cycle, you should prioritize foods that are less fragile, space-saving and that can be stored well at room temperature. An insulated bag with ice packs can be used to keep some foods cold. Here is the list of foods to choose from:
If you’re planning on driving to your destination, you can use a cooler. Simply place several ice blocks inside and then add the foods of your choice. Be careful to open the cooler as little as possible, especially if you have animal protein dishes, as in the presence of heat, they may develop bacteria that are harmful to your health.
In addition to the foods already mentioned, you can put in your cooler any type of hearty salads, always a popular choice when it’s hot.
Water is still the drink of choice at all times, and even more so when it’s hot. It is important to drink enough, so as not to become dehydrated.
After eating well, why not do a fun activity? All you need is a ball, frisbee, or badminton rackets to organize all kinds of games where you can move and have fun together. Because picnics are magical and can also be active!
