Here in Alberta, we have another full month of school left before we're done for the summer break. I've started thinking ahead to summer holidays, and how what we're going to be doing is going to impact what we'll be eating.
Do you depend on bbq's or takeout? Or do you eat a lot of cold salads, or have wiener roasts down at a campground somewhere?
No matter what you eat when you're celebrating summer- and believe, me, summer is way too short in Alberta to not celebrate it- I encourage you to remember to bring fresh fruit and vegetables with you. An apple packs very well, as do carrot sticks. Stop at farmers markets or U-Pick produce farms to let the kids try out something new while you're out adventuring. Don't just stop to smell the roses- stop and eat the fruit that grows right there in your own backyard.
I'm so looking forward to the end of the school year and the start of summer break. What are you looking forward to?
