Tupperware recipes

Spring is about to arrive and temperatures begin to offer an opportunity to make excursions outdoors. A route through the mountains, where you can discover new places and breathe fresh air, a day at the beach, taking advantage of the mild days or, simply, a walk along the river or a visit to the park. Any plan is good for taking the picnic basket and eating surrounded by nature.

In a picnic, planning is key. Here the idea is to sharpen the wit, but not only for the main courses; breakfasts and snacks also have their place. The important thing is to avoid resorting to the usual sandwich or the lunch boxes elaborated with leftovers. 

Organising and bringing our own food, made with natural products, making a conscious choice of food is undoubtedly more than enough reason to maintain a healthy diet and enjoy the company of the sun, friends and/or family.

Healthy food in tupperware is it possible?
Even so, it is essential to assess some aspects so as not to give up in the face of haste and choose combinations which increase our caloric intake instead of establishing healthy eating patterns. Therefore, it is important to weigh some details which will make these picnic dishes more tasty.

  • Always choose seasonal foods. A good variety of vegetables offers colour, vitamins and fibre; both raw and cooked. To preserve their texture, it is useful to store sauces and dressings in separate containers to be used at the time; prioritising extra virgin olive oil and aromatic herbs. Vegetable salads, vegetable patties, quiches, salt pies, pasties, cheeses, nuts or gourmet sandwiches, represent some of the alternatives.
  • Ingredients such as boiled pasta, white rice, legumes, tortillas, croquettes are great options to include in the tupperware.
  • For dessert, some piece of fruit or, if we want something more special, opt for glasses of cream or yogurt, but only if you have a refrigerator.
  • Drink: in the case of carrying water, juices, soft drinks or wine, we must have a small refrigerator with plenty of ice to keep them cold. A thermos of tea or coffee always comes in handy.
  • Bags for rubbish: it's important not to leave our mark wherever we go and to take care of the environment. In addition to fulfilling their function, they can be used to collect some edible wild fruits.

The idea is to be able to enjoy a relaxed and stress-free moment in the natural environment, enjoying the food.

Next, we offer you a complete menu of those who do it without problems and which offer us a varied and balanced option. And remember, these tips can also help us if we take tupperware to the office.
