Lockdown has had a huge impact on how we will socialise in the future.
For many of us it's been a difficult time not being able to meet up with family and friends. A lot of people have had to get used to trying to work from home with their babies and toddlers at their feet.
I don't know about you but during the summer I find some days difficult to keep eating healthy all while maintaining the same level of energy. We are a very active family but during the summer we are even more so. In order to sustain our busy summer schedules what I find great is to get a boost in the morning with a delicious smoothie.
Heading off on your family staycation doesn’t have to break the bank. I would really recommend that you look at a self-catering option if you have small children so that you can prepare their food and cut down on the costs of going out for a meal.
Last week we went on a family staycation to the west of Ireland. We decided to go west on our journey because my Mum lives in Sligo and I was so excited to see her after 4 months. We are lucky to have a campervan which means we can be self contained and not have to rely on restaurants or services.
One thing I would highly recommend is to portion out your food before freezing. Not only does it save so much time when figuring out how much you need to defrost, but it also limits the amount of food you waste! The one thing you don't want is for all your hard work in the kitchen to be thrown in the bin. Simply portion your food into portion pots and use labels to note what food is inside and when it was made.
