National Picnic Week - The Solution To A Bread Free Picnic!

11.06.2014

National Picnic Week is upon us, 16th-22nd June and with that comes sunshine, friends and food! What follows are 3 recipes that cook up a delicious, easy and healthy picnic – filled to bursting with vitamins and nutrients, loading you and your friends and family up with the energy to feel your best.

Our first recipe is a cheese and vegetable frittata, versatile and easily transported. Swap any of the vegetables for preferred ones. The protein in the eggs will also provide you with lasting energy. To accompany your frittata, we have a refreshing peach and prosciutto salad. Be sure to pack the dressing within it’s own container and pour over your dish when you’re ready to eat – in order to avoid a soggy unappetising meal! To finish off we have delicious strawberries topped with natural Greek yoghurt infused with vanilla essence and topped with Cadbury’s chocolate flake to finish off a fantastic meal.
