I don’t know about you, but summer is all about easing up on just about everything! We take a break from most of our commitments and obligations. Then, we love to take advantage of the free time to do weekend getaways, beach days, long hikes, and time to soak in the sun. I also look for super easy ways to put my summer meals together especially while on vacation. While I may break from normal routines, it’s still important to stay on track with my health and wellness goals. Thank goodness for PlateJoy, which truly makes planning and preparing summer meals super easy!
What’s PlateJoy? Well, have you ever wanted a personal assistant? You know, someone to help you plan your meals, put together your grocery list, and basically take the bulk of the meal planning burden off of your back? That’s what PlateJoy can do for you! It takes the hassle out of thinking up meals to cook, allowing you more time to hang out with your family or…do nothing at all. You’ll get a ton of time back to allocate to whatever you want to do. Of course, you can utilize it for planning your summer meals at home. But you can also use it to plan your vacation meals if staying at a beach house, for example. Unlike meal delivery kits that deliver fresh food, PlateJoy provides you with recipes on-the-go on your phone. This allows you the flexibility to pick up ingredients for meals wherever you are.
Want to see some examples of what PlateJoy can plan for your summer meals? Here are a few of my favorites:
- Nothing says summer like a big bowl of guac and chips. Give this Greek-style version a try because it’s a perfect twist on the classic.
- Looking for quick and easy lunch options? Try this pasta salad with mozzarella, tomatoes, and salami. It’s a great option to fill you up, and it packs as great leftovers, too!
- Do you love something sweet? Try this berries and cream delight treat, which is simple yet will satisfy even the most stubborn sweet tooth.
And what about snacks? They are often overlooked, especially if you’re making a road trip. Instead of loading up on whatever you can find at a gas station (e.g., salty chips, chocolate, and candy), a little planning with PlateJoy can help you plan for healthier snacks. Check out this article about convenient snacks that taste better, and will keep you feeling fresh for the vacation ahead.

Now that your summer meals are planned, all that’s left is to pick a destination, get packing, download the PlateJoy app for your customized summer meal plan, and enjoy the vacation ahead!
