Sun Basket Goes Camping
A couple of weeks ago, our videographer, Matt Chavez; business analyst, Elton Fong; and Omar Navarro, who works with our photo team, headed to Lake Shasta on Friday afternoon with a Sun Basket in the back of the car.
On Monday, Matt reported back on his favorite things about his meal that weekend.
No shopping. “The worst part of camping is all the preparation,” says Matt “and after working all week, we don’t have a lot of time for that. We ordered a Sun Basket with three bags of the Steak Fajita Lettuce Wraps with Guacamole and we were all set for our dinner Saturday night.”
No packing. “The insulated Sun Basket box kept all the food cold, so we had more room in the cooler for beer.“
So easy. “We spent all day Saturday hiking and fishing. (I caught a bass, and Omar foraged for wild mushrooms.) We were all pretty hungry when we got back to the campsite, and it was great to have the ingredients for the meal organized and ready to cook.”
So delicious.” Sun Basket meals are always good, but they’re even better when cooked over an open fire.”
Easy to clean up. Because the meals are portioned in just the right amount of ingredients, there was very little left to clean up and no food to take home. We burned the box and the paper bags for kindling, and packed the plastic bags and containers to take home. Omar had the bright idea to reuse the small containers for salt, pepper, and even soap.
Sweet dreams. “Since I always forget my pillow, I rolled up the insulation, taped it closed with the sticker, covered it with a tee-shirt, and tucked it under my head.”
Sun Basket Hearts Beer
When Koji Hamada, Sun Basket's data scientist, is not busy making sense of all our numbers, he’s likely either making (or drinking) beer. He’s also studying to be a cicerone (a beer sommelier). We gave him a bit of homework and asked him to pair some of his favorite brews with a few of the meals from our June 6 menu.Read more
Exercise Your Mind
Summer is a great time to move your fitness program from the gym to the streets (and the trails). While we all know that it’s wise to exercise, it’s also true that exercise makes you wise. Researchers have been studying how working out affects the brain, and they’ve found compelling evidence that strong bodies and sharp minds go hand-in-hand.Read more
