Summer’s here, go out and play

It’s Summer and so far we have already had some fantastic, warm, sunny weather so let’s all get outside, enjoy the sun and top up the vitamin D levels.

Stay hydrated

Coconut water is one of the best drinks available to keep you well hydrated. Low in fat and calories, it has no cholesterol, and has a natural balance of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium, boosting much needed electrolytes.

You could try this recent refreshing addition to our range from Jax.

 

Pack a picnic

What better way to create a sense of wellbeing than to share good food with nice people in beautiful surroundings.

How about our Cherry Tomato, Mozzarella and Fig Salad to whet your appetite.

If you are in Edinburgh this summer there are lots of places to take your picnic. Our favourites in the city are Calton Hill and Dunbars Close. For a more complete list read our Picnic in the Park article.

 

 

Get the grill out

A barbecue is a great opportunity to build a sense of community with those who live around you. We have recipes on the website for you to select a menu from and it’s easy to buy the ingredients you need with one simple click of the mouse.

See the full collection of recipes online at www.realfoods.co.uk/recipes.

 

Trail Mix Treat yourself

Fresh, whole fruit, such as apples, oranges, bananas and pears, are good to take with you when you’re out for the day. Pick organic to avoid the pesky pesticides.

Pack healthy snack mixes such as our own Trail Mix, a popular combination of banana chips and coconut, sweetened with raisins with added crunch from almonds and cashew nuts. 

Raw snackbars are a quick, easy and healthy off the shelf option with their simple and wholesome ingredients. Try the ever popular Nakd bars, or these recent raw snackbar recruits to our range from Natur Boutique.

No Scent Sunscreen SPF 25 Leavin’ on a jet plane

Whatever you choose to do this Summer we hope you have fun, relax and enjoy your holidays. If you’re flying abroad, remember your hand luggage liquids need to be 100ml or less. Two very handy products that get past the restrictions: Dr Bronner’s Castille soap and Green People toothpaste, both available in 50ml sizes.

Finally, stay safe and wear sunscreen. We recommend a good mineral based sunsceen and supply two great options from Lavera and Green People.
