No-Cook Meals for Summer

No-Cook Meals for Summer

We all welcome the summer sun, but the rising temperatures do come with one tiny problem: the last thing you want to do is turn on your oven or stove. Stocking certain ingredients also helps keep each no-cook meal from becoming boring.  You just need to be willing to mix things up and try new things. These great ideas will save you time and money anytime throughout the year; especially, in the summer.

  1. Shop for (or order) your groceries early on the weekend to give yourself time to organize, prep, and plan – but keep it simple.
  2. Purchase a rotisserie chicken (or two), or pick up some pre-cooked salmon or tri-tip.
  3. Stock up on other pre-cooked protein options like tuna, chickpeas, and beans.
  4. Take advantage of the summer fruits and vegetables – remembering the fact that most summer veggies taste great raw.
  5. If you do cook anything, make it a big batch of grains or pulses like rice, farro, quinoa, or lentils.
  6. Make sure you have enough vinaigrettes, spreads, and dips, whether bought or homemade. Hummus and guacamole are great to add to rice bowls, salads, sandwiches, and for veggie dipping.
  7. Buy the best bread you can get – ensuring you’re getting maximum nutrition in your meal. Try something new like sourdough with olives or Asiago ciabatta.
  8. Use plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese as your breakfast base. Top with nuts, cooked grains, fresh or dried fruits.

Pat, love this post, as it is so hot, no one wants to cook.   Salads with shrimp or chicken are always good.
