Meal planner: Tropic hunger
New World helps you bring the tropic feeling of summer into the kitchen.
After spending weeks on sun drenched beaches it can be hard to settle back into work mode.

New World value bite: tips for saving time and money in the kitchen
When purchasing something large like a watermelon, plan-ahead for other ways to use it to reduce waste, think blended with ice in drinks, or even frozen for later.
When out of season you can still get your favourite tropical fruits and berries in frozen form and they are just as good for you.
When you see your favourite brand of tinned tomatoes or beans on special, buy up big, that way you always have the foundations for a good meal on hand, for less.
The great range of frozen vege medleys available in the freezer section are a huge time and money saver for busy families.
