FAVORITE SUMMER PICNIC MUST-HAVES
Blueberries are definitely a part of my summer picnic must-haves. I am happy to share my love for them, because not only is July National Picnic Month, it’s also National Blueberry Month. Refreshing, nutritious and convenient, blueberries are a good source of fiber and vitamin C and are an easy and flavorful snack to bring along to all your summer outings–especially during National Blueberry Month. Make sure to include some delicious recipes like this Blueberry and Watermelon Salad with Marinated Feta Cheese, this fabulous Bento Box, or these Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake Brownies in your picnic basket. You can eat blueberries by the handful or try putting frozen blueberries into your drinks. Scrumptious! The perfect everyday snack and addition to any picnic—Blueberries are certified as heart-healthy through the American Heart Association Heart-Check Food Certification Program. So visit BlueberryCouncil.org for more about the health benefits of blueberries, recipes and more.

I say you should Stellabrate Summer with America’s favorite semi-sweet, semi-sparkling Italian wine, Stella Rosa! It’s comes in 25 all-natural fruit flavors, like new Blueberry, Watermelon and Golden Honey Peach! There’s also Stella Rosa Royale–the classic Rosso flavor you love, now with 8% alcohol!

Cheese is always a winner at every picnic, but not just any cheese…Start by looking for a proven winner, the Proudly Wisconsin Cheese badge on packaging nationwide. Wisconsin Wins more awards for cheese than any other state, region, or country. Here I have a beautiful cheese board with fresh fruits, veggies and my favorite pairing partners.
