With summer upon us, there is no better time to enjoy the great outdoors.
So, why not plan some alfresco eating with friends and family, opting for the healthiest plant-based foods, with the help of The Fry Family Food Company.
The vegan food brand has pulled together a list of essentials for the perfect vegan picnic, from meat free sausage rolls, to recycled cotton picnic blankets and biodegradable cutlery.
- Pack the essentials: A blanket, basket, crockery and cutlery are staple ingredients for the perfect picnic. Bring some cutlery from home if you can manage, or if you need to buy something more lightweight, try a biodegradable set.
- Choose the perfect location: Picnics are a great way to get outdoors, get some fresh air and enjoy nature. If you have time for a bit of a walk there, even better! The National Trust has a great list of picnic spots across the UK, and you can search by region.
- Preparation is key: The secret to a perfect picnic is preparation. If good weather is predicted for the following day, prep the food the night before so you can put your basket together and get out the door as soon as possible.
- Much-needed refreshment: A long, hot summer day requires refreshment. Glass bottles and mason jars are a great way of transporting your favourite drinks, and cooling bags will keep them chilled for hours. Opt for homemade lemonade or a thirst-quenching fruit juice, but don’t forget a refillable water bottle to ensure nobody gets dehydrated.
