Wondering how to use your beeswax wraps in the Summer? When the sun is shinning it's best to make the most of it! Try to get outdoors and soak up some vitamin D. Here's 5 ways to use your beeswax wraps outdoors!
When it comes to picnic I recommend a good strong basket. I picked up one in our local farmers market - a great investment! I love to bring bread and a knife with some sandwich fillers (cheese, ham, hummus) and prepare outside. Less prep time indoors! I usually have bread already wrapped in the pantry so it's just a matter of throwing it into the basket.
Whether you are making a salad for your lunch-break or a social gathering you can prepare in advance and keep covered in the fridge till later. Keep the dressing separate and mix when ready to eat. You don't want soggy lettuce! As well as the health benefits, making your own salads can save money and you can be as creative as you like!
One plus to beeswax wraps is that they are lightweight and convenient. If you are going for a cycle or hike they don't take up much space and keep your food wrapped up tightly!
When it comes to eating on the go Millbee's lunch pack beeswax wrap sizes are ideal. You can make your sandwich in advance, wrap it in a sandwich pouch and all your fillings will stay intact!
Summer BBQ's are the best! You can marinade vegetable dishes in advance and leave over night in the fridge. The same goes for vegetable burgers. I love this 15 minute vegetable burger recipe from the Happy Pear.
I hope you get some Summer inspiration from our 5 uses for Millbee's Beeswax Wraps. Enjoy your Summer!
My name is Dee. I'm from country Mayo. I am here to tell you about my Millbee journey and experience.
In 2019, I had a pretty bad mental breakdown. I spent a lot of my months, sitting outside on the patio in nature. Trying to recoup, regenerate, re-energise and trying to get things into perspective for myself.
For a lot of that time the only company I had was nature. I watched the birds come in and out into the feeders in early Spring and on into Summer. There was a hive of bees and wasps coming and going and I used to take such pleasure in watching them bounce from flower to flower. It made me really want to invest back into nature.
While I was going through that really difficult time, nature was there to pick me up, keep me company and it soothed me many days.
I decided to make new choices to rebuild my life. Change can't happen unless I make change happen. I decided that I needed to take care of myself, and in taking care of myself, my home was going to be an extension of that. Further out from that, my take on the environment.
So in the Autumn/Winter of 2019, I made my first purchase with Millbee in hopes to reduce single use plastics at home.
And I'd say after a couple of months, I wasn't picking up the cling wrap as much as I usually would be. I started with the lunch pack and getting the kids off to school with their lunches wrapped up in Millbee's Beeswax Wraps. It did wonders for me also because I felt like I was doing something good for them. Teaching them to take care of things and showing them that it's little steps we do that's going to make a difference.
I choose doing more for the environment as part of my self care regime.
I learned so much from it that I wanted to give back, and I wanted to protect what was there. As time has gone on I've expanded my Millbee collection to their candles which I find fantastic for a few quiet moments to myself. If I want any time to journal or time to relax before bed, the glow of Millbee's beeswax candle really does it for me! And I just love the way they're constructed and rolled. I really admire the workmanship that's gone into the candles!
I use all the wrap sizes - the bread wrap and the variety wrap sizes. I have a couple of the lunch wraps and they go on pretty much everything. My sourdough starter is now under one, and it's the happiest it's ever been!
So, that's why I choose Millbee as part of my journey going forward. I like the ethos. I like working with nature and bees.
I like reusable products you use in the home that are more eco-friendly. It leaves less of a footprint.
What I was doing in my home gave me a boost. I was implementing some good habits with my children. I was giving them some good knowledge on how to take care of things, themselves and the earth combined, and all of nature. I felt like I was given something back. So that's my journey with Millbee! That's why I've incorporated this so much into my life and I really don't see it ending there! Keep moving forward with it and coming up with new ideas for us. That's it guys! Thank you.
