Summertime and the Sandwich Saver is Starfrit!

Summertime and the Sandwich Saver is Starfrit!
  Summertime means a renewed appreciation for chilled snacks, sandwiches and even desserts. Cooler is better and also generally, easier to prepare.     We also tend to think healthier and ‘light’ in summer and the foods we make are often home-made (vs. the food court or drive through) for exactly that reason. Plus with so much great fresh produce around, you want to make your own. Chances are you’ll also be outdoors more often and you’ll make food that ‘travels’ well.  With that in mind, you should head to the Starfrit buffet of lunch-totes and containers to store the treasured things you’ll be making. The thing with portable food, as easy as it is, is that that if you don’t have the right containers (size or style), you end up in all sorts of wacky, mismatched containers that often leak and overall, simply don’t present the food well nor store it properly. Starfrit has a dedicated style or size food-tote, no matter what you need it for, i.e. gourmet wraps and sandwiches, fruit and cheese plates, or layered or traditional salads or raw vegetables.  In particular, the collapsible totes pack a nice volume of food but once emptied and washed, they collapse for easy transport back home. The variety of Lock&Lock containers have a model for every need and that nice ‘snap’ sound when they snugly seal in the food is reassuring. You know the food will stay fresh and in place and there won’t be any leakage surprises in your messenger bag or on the car seat. Berries and tender plums stay intact. These totes are also great for picnics as they all stack together like a food ‘mosaic’ of great fresh recipes that go from kitchen to park, beach or a friend’s deck for enjoyment later on. They also take little space in the fridge (vs. odd sized containers that don’t fit together). So carry on making fresh, wholesome food and back it all up with the right container to finish the job!
