Great Meal Prep Options to Eat Poolside
Summer is here, and we desert dwellers are either dining in air-conditioned coolness or outside by the pool, ready to slip into the still cool waters at the first bead of sweat! What we are not doing, however, is spending much time in the kitchen; it is 100+ degrees outside, why would we want to slave over a hot stove in that heat? Fortunately, Fresh Taste Meal Prep has your back, allowing you to stay out of the kitchen but still enjoy the meals you love the most. This guide to our meal prep options for poolside dining will help make your days easier, especially when you order your meals to be delivered!
Sandwiches for the Win
Ok, the common sandwich is something that you could easily prepare, no hot stove required, but if you haven’t figured it out by now, you will soon see that we do not do ordinary! Our Turkey Melt Sandwich is a customer favorite, created with just a few fresh and locally resourced ingredients: thinly sliced turkey, creamy Swiss cheese, and a savory au juice that could make your worst’s enemy’s cooking seem professional! Served with a side of roasted potatoes, it is the perfect pool side meal, and if you are following a keto diet or just want something lighter for the hotter days, our keto version is served on crisp and cool greens and comes with a side of roasted cauliflower. The regular version freezes well, so order extra and make your pool time a party when you invite your friends to join in the fun!
The Salad Days of Summer
We do tend to eat a lot more salads in the summer, but not because we are trying to lose weight; the desert temperatures just wreak havoc with our appetites! You must eat to live, however, and when a heavy meal with beef and potatoes seems too much, our Salmon Caesar Salad will hit the spot. Coming in a keto version as well, the original version is made with blackened salmon, crisp romaine lettuce, sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes, creamy Caesar dressing, and is topped with parmesan cheese and garlic croutons—the keto version simply leaves the croutons off. Whichever version you purchase, the flavor explosion that will take place in your mouth as you are enjoying the view of your pool and the feel of the cool waters in which you are dangling your feet will encourage you to order this simple dish again and again and again!
Breakfast by the Pool
If you have lived in the valley for longer than a few minutes, you already know that mornings are the best time to enjoy your pool. The water is cool, and the air temperature is warm enough to enjoy the cool waters, but not so hot as to make you uncomfortable! This is the perfect time to get a little fresh air and enjoy our taste of the Southwest in the form of Breakfast Tacos. This is a super popular dish, one that we have mentioned before, but it is definitely worth mentioning again! The taste of scrambled eggs, chorizo sausage, three-cheese blend, tomatillo salsa, and flour tortillas will add spice to your life. This meal also comes with a side of breakfast potatoes, so eat up and start your summer day the right way. The keto version skips the tortillas but still offers potatoes, so this might be a great cheat meal without cheating too much!
Spicy does not necessarily always have to offer heat, and our Steak Chimichurri meal is all the proof you will need! We start with thicker slices of shaved marinated steak over which we pour a savory cilantro garlic sauce that will change your life. Served with grilled vegetables, this new dish is one of our favorites, and we can’t wait for you to try it, as we think it will be one of your new favorites as well!
Wishing for Winter?
Sometime around the 15th month of summer our skin becomes leathery, our souls become broken, and we all start wishing that the perfect months of winter would hurry up and get here! If you are in the wishing for winter stage of summer, you have two choices for poolside treats, one of which may surprise you! The first and the most expected is our Charcuterie Box filled with fresh veggies, cheeses, jams, crackers, and imported meats. This box can be shared and gets your calories in during a time when you really have no appetite! But if you want to try something unusual, why not purchase our Chili Soup and trick your overheated body into THINKING it is winter? Thick, hearty, and filled with chili beef, sauteed onions, peppers, beans, garlic, and spices this traditional dish is usually saved for rainy days, but we think it offers a great treat anytime of the year!
