Finally, tastecard can see a glimpse of the summer ahead. The sun is out, we’re ready to eat our lunch al fresco and healthy summer foods and restaurant specials are on the menu of our dining club restaurants. Summer eats are here to stay!
Before though you reach for a glass of chilled wine and some sprigs of salad, we thought we should look at the best summer foods to eat. We want you to keep it light and easy, so you can really enjoy the heat (hopefully) of the British summer.
Why not tell us what you like to eat when you’re enjoying some summer dining? Tweet about your favourite summer restaurants in the UK or Ireland to tastecard Twitter, or list your favourite summer foods on our Facebook page.
The Best of Summer Fare with Our Dining Club
What kind of summer fare can you expect from tastecard restaurants? If summer food means vegan dishes, why not check out our recent blog posts, ‘Vegan Restaurants and Veganism’ and ‘Top Vegan Restaurants on tastecard’ for lots of great ideas on healthy eating this summer.
Here are some tastecard suggestions for the best foods to eat during summer:
- Corn on the cob – High-fibre, low-calorie, delicious grilled, perfect for a summer salad. Just don’t add too much butter!
- Watermelon – The perfect thirst quencher for a sunny day, watermelon is over 90% water and contains anti-cancer lycopene. Healthy and delicious, what’s not to love?
- Fruit salad – Gives you a massive energy boost and summer is the peak time for the most colourful berries and stone fruit. Did we mention the added antioxidants and vitamins?
- Gazpacho – Yes, we know it’s summer and this is soup. But it’s chilled soup so it’s filling and doesn’t start you sweating and that makes it perfect for summertime.
- Grilled chicken kebabs – What summer is complete without a barbecue dish? This is one of tastecard’s favourites grills.
- Prawn cocktail – This is a classic starter and a classic summer light lunch. Plenty of protein and iron and plenty of sunshine taste.
You’ll eat and drink summer in when you dine out in your favourite restaurant at tastecard discount prices.
