So you too have decided to take up the trend for healthy food at the office! And to do so, you’ve kitted yourself out with everything you need to keep your food perfectly fresh and protected during transport – airtight boxes designed to be taken anywhere that preserve all your dishes, whether in the fridge or the freezer.  Here are a few tips for tasty lunches packed with goodness.

Visuel Storage

The big freeze!

Rather than buying ready-made meals, what could be better than a homemade lunchbox full of healthy ingredients? It’s sure to be well-balanced and provide you with all the taste without containing too much fat or salt. But of course, you can’t spend two hours in the kitchen every night. What’s the answer? To make your dishes using fresh produce and freeze them.

In order to retain all the nutritional goodness of your ingredients, you need to follow a few simple rules. Pay attention to the quality of your containers. They must be completely airtight so that your meals don’t dry out while they’re in the fridge or freezer. Air is your main enemy when it comes to preserving food, so expel it before closing your container.

Get super organised, with lunchboxes that vary with the seasons.

When it comes to getting organised, you’ll find you just need to adopt a few good habits. Label your airtight containers to ensure you eat the oldest dishes first. Make up different sizes of boxes so that you can take them straight to work without having to transfer the contents!  And our top tip? Wet the lid of your frozen container before opening it, to stop it losing its shape and airtightness. And needless to say, don’t forget to open the valve or remove the lid before heating up your lunchbox in the microwave!

 

Breakfast is the meal that best represents our personal tastes. While you may love a sweet start to the day, your other half’s idea of the perfect breakfast is scrambled eggs with avocado-topped toast. ‘Typical’ breakfasts around the world have far more similarities between them than differences!

And you? Are you tea or coffee?

In France or Italy, hard to start the day without a small, strong coffee while on the other side of the Atlantic people drink more in terms of quantity – but it’s not usually so strong. While coffee is loved around the world, it is nevertheless far outstripped by black tea in Britain and green tea in Japan. From the moment we get up, each of us chooses our side! And some have very different customs. For example, why not make yourself a delicious, Spanish-style Chocolate con Churros?

Sweet, savoury or even both… We each have our own favourite tastes and colours

If you only ever go for a sweet breakfast, you undoubtedly live in the US or Western Europe -porridge, buttered bread with jam, fresh fruit, bowls of cereal for the kids and orange juice for everyone. While if you’re more of a savoury fiend, you’ll love a Scandinavian breakfast, British Marmite (also loved by the Australians and New Zealanders!) or an Asian start to the day based mainly on rice and vegetables. And of course, there’s nothing to stop you from mixing it all up – omelette with banana French toast or pancakes with sauté potatoes! After all, anything goes!

 

Each year’s cooking and baking trends are set by the top chefs but also, and increasingly so, by the social network star foodies. And 2016 is no exception. This year, the emphasis is on family, sharing, and healthy ingredients. It’s yet another reason to ensure you always have your trusty Masterchef Gourmet to hand.

Share more and more of those magic moments 

Your Masterchef Gourmet will yet again be put to the test this year. And for good reason, because the current trend in terms of baking is for fun cakes using healthy ingredients. People want layer cakes, rainbow cakes and choux pastries, but using less white sugar. Replacing it with maple syrup, agave syrup and coconut sugar gives our muffins and cupcakes a whole new range of flavours. Also not to be missed are the gluten-free recipes that push you to constantly innovate and experiment, with chestnut, quinoa and rice flour all becoming your new allies.

The other major trend in 2016 is towards totally-healthy vegan baking! And because there’s no stopping you now, you’ll soon become a past master in the art of whipping aquafaba (the chickpea juice used as a replacement for egg whites) and have the whole family clamouring for more of that chocolate mousse! 100% vegan cooking now knows no limits, meaning your kids can invent their own recipes for pancakes and waffles and succumb again and again to the charms of your chocolate, hazelnut and chia seed cookies. It’s the start of a sweet revolution!

 

Jamie’s back and he’s launching the Food Revolution – an ongoing, global campaign to provoke debate and inspire positive, meaningful change in the way our children access, consume and understand food.

ABOUT THE FOOD REVOLUTION

“We’re in the middle of a global health crisis. Right now, an astounding 41 million children under five are overweight, while another 159 million are too undernourished to grow properly. We’re failing both our children and future generations by not empowering them with the right food and skills they need to grow healthily and happily. This year, Jamie is launching a year-round, global Food Revolution to educate and inspire people and communities to make better food choices and lobby governments and businesses to make positive, lasting change.”

You can get involved too! Change can start at home, simply by learning to cook a few nutritious meals and passing those new skills onto friends and family. Change can mean getting your kids in the kitchen, supporting local food or inviting your loved ones around a table to enjoy good food, cooked from scratch. You can also advocate change at a community level, by signing up to the Food Revolution, keeping up-to-date with all the latest news, and supporting Jamie and his partner’s campaigns in making everyone’s united voice heard. Together, we can all make small changes that en masse create a huge impact.
