‘Summertime, an’ the livin’ is easy.’
Ella Fitzgerald knew it and we know it. People everywhere, relaxing, humming, strolling, drinking pink juice with umbrellas and eating cool, fresh fare. And in the heat we wear fewer clothes and so the annual health drive pulls into high gear as the winter camouflage is shed along with those pesky extra pounds required for October to March hibernation. The fitness fad brings with it a need for consumption of only the freshest, fat-free ingredients to ensure that we all feel our best as British Summertime makes its (all-too-brief) appearance.
At Quattro Foods we aim to please. When our customers are happy we are happy and if you are asking us for low fat, low sugar options for your table, we will oblige.
Feedback is important to our chefs. They like to know exactly what you like, so they ask. And you have told us that in summer you love soup. Some may be surprised but not us. We don’t blame you. It really is one of the most filling and healthy lunch options. A winter warmer? Nope! Don’t be fooled by soup’s comfort-food reputation. A classic soup can really hit the mark on a scorching day. And Quattro soups? Nothing like them. Chunky, smooth, whatever you prefer – but always bursting with goodness, flavour and vitality.
Here are some of your favourite healthy summer soup options:
- Corn and pepper chowder
- Super green vegetable
- Butternut, carrot and coriander
- Chicken ginger kale broth
- Lentil with parsley and coriander
Quattro Foods is one of the UK’s leading food manufacturers supplying high street restaurants, chains and food service businesses with menu plans that are healthy and tasty. Bring on the veg! Our customers are asking us for vegan options more and more and our chefs say ‘no problem!’ Plant-based concoctions coming out of the Quattro kitchens include risottos, vegetable chowders and chilli sauces. We also cater for our dairy and gluten free customers.
Our customers are businesses, but the customers they serve are often families. We asked the internet what children should be eating during the summer months. Of course we all know that fruit and veg are key to healthy growing, but it’s always fun to see what else comes up. We came across many sensible articles telling anxious parents to let the little ones have fun when school’s out. They should be allowed the odd sweet treat as long as they’re being active and we should always be good role models. If they see us enjoying healthy food they’ll learn that healthy choices are the way to feel energetic and happy. We were amused and excited to discover that an American survey found that many kids adore trying new things in Summer and that Mexican food is a surprise hit amongst little tastebuds across the US when the sun shines. Quattro’s Mexican-inspired range is full of flavour so introduce your offspring to different tastes and watch their horizons expand.
Look no further than the Quattro kitchen for wholesome, tasty and healthy food. Be clean, be green and enjoy the sun with Quattro!
