Beat the heat and get out of the kitchen

I absolutely love summer, and out of sheer fear of winter rearing it’s ugly head early, you will never catch me complaining about the heat. That said, right now it is hot, hot, hot! Multiply that by at least 42 and you have the temperature inside my house. Needless to say, the last thing I feel like doing after a long day at work is cooking, and further heating up my house.

We are extremely lucky in that there is a plethora of free outdoor evening activities to do with the kids around my neighbourhood; Splash park, wading pool, petting zoo, playground, just to name a few. So I figured I would kill a handful of birds with one stone by packing a PROTINIS™ picnic and taking the kids to the park. No worries about heating up the kitchen, and the kids and I get to spend extra quality time playing before bedtime!

I love Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® PROTINIS™ because:

  • They are a complete protein which means they contain all of the essential amino acids that your body needs but can’t produce on it’s own – something that I’m always thinking about as I’m a vegetarian who struggles with ensuring I’m getting enough protein.
  • There’s two perfectly portioned dishes in each pack – great for a grab and go picnic dinner with kids, or a quick snack for parents on the move.

#protinis snackMy kids love Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® PROTINIS™ because:

  • They come in 8 tasty flavours that my kids love, including the smallest kids favorite Oven Roasted Chicken and Cranberry.
  • The manageable sized packages fit perfectly in little hands, with easy peel lids that enable independence.

These are a definite win in our house – and I’d love for them to be a win in your house too! Enter below for your chance to win 5 Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® PROTINIS™ coupons!

    I think that these are a great idea for lunches or quick snacks for the inbetween time from kids activities until dinner.

    My favourite is Oven Roasted Chicken and SuperFruit
