      Tea Kettle Hacks: Food You Can Make with a Tea Kettle

      Tea Kettle Hacks: Food You Can Make with a Tea Kettle

      Tea Kettle Hacks: Food You Can Make with a Tea Kettle

      One of the simplest things in your kitchen can be used to make simple recipes, and we bet you wouldn’t have thought to use your trust tea kettle to make them! Here’s a list of 5 things you can make using only a tea kettle!

      1.    Hard boiled eggs

      Easily make hard boiled eggs with your whistling tea kettle for a quick morning breakfast that is healthy and delicious! Place eggs to one side of your kettle and fill with water so the water covers the eggs. Place the kettle on your burner so the eggs don’t directly touch the heating element (move part of the kettle off the burner) and let it boil for 13 minutes. When time’s up, pour out the water and prepare your hardboiled eggs as you would normally. Enjoy!

      2.    Oatmeal

      Whip up some oatmeal in a jiffy with your whistling tea kettle! Place your kettle on the burner with water and let the whistle alert you when it’s time to pour the hot water over you instant oatmeal. Voila.

      3.    Ramen

      A college kid’s favorite, sometimes we just want a simple bowl of ramen noodles for a quick bite to eat. Simply boil the recommended amount of water in your kettle until the whistle sounds, pour the hot water into a bowl over the dry ramen noodles, let the noodles sit in the hot water for about 3 minutes, stir in your flavoring packet and enjoy! You could also cook the noodles right inside the kettle, but we think pouring it over the noodles is a bit easier!

      4.    Heat up soup

      Have a can of soup or leftover soup that you want to heat up? Pour your soup into your tea kettle and heat on medium heat until heated through. Don’t let the soup boil, though, it can burn your soup on the bottom of your kettle. If your soup allows you to, you can easily pour it out of the spout for easy, mess free and safe serving of your bowl of goodness.

      5.    Rice

      Make rice exactly as you would in a pot, but use your kettle instead. It’s the perfect idea for camping or dorm rooms- you can have one tool to make your morning coffee, afternoon tea and rice for your dinner!

      Final Point Of Brew

      Your tea kettle doesn’t only need to be used to make the usual coffee or tea- you can do so much more than that! From instant, just-add-boiled-water-foods to heating and serving soup, the tea kettle serves as a versatile kitchen tool. Great for dorms or camping where cooking space is limited, the tea kettle can make some simple recipes in a snap! Primula’s assortment of tea kettles are not only a versatile, but a sleek, stylish addition to any kitchen. See for yourself!

      How Much Water Should I Drink Per Day?

      How Much Water Should I Drink Per Day?

      Ah, the age-old question about how much water you should drink per day. Everyone knows that drinking water and staying hydrated is an important part of living healthy, but exactly how much are you supposed to drink? We did a little bit of digging to find out the answer.

      And the answer is….

      It depends. We know, that’s not the pretty, packaged, straight-forward answer you wanted to hear, but it’s true! Depending on the weather and your exercise level, the amount of water you need to drink changes. In hotter weather, it’s important to drink more than you normally would so you can stay hydrated while getting dehydrated from the heat and the sun. Same goes if you’re working out and sweating a lot- you need to replace the water lost with more water, of course.

      There’s also another factor that many people don’t think about when trying to figure out how much water they need: the food they intake. Different foods have different water contents. For example, watermelon, pineapple and cucumbers all have high water content, which contributes to your hydration. On the other end of the spectrum, salty foods can dehydrate you, causing you to need more water.

      But, there are basic guidelines to follow:

      According to a study found in Nutrition Reviews1, a daily water intake of 3.7L for adult men and 2.7L for adult women meets the needs of a majority of persons. Of course, everybody is different, and that needs to be taken into account when trying to figure out how much water you need.

      How do I know if I need more water?

      According to an article by Reader’s Digest, common signs of dehydration include, but are not limited to: bad breath, bad mood, sugar cravings, your energy level (especially during working out) is much lower than usual, fatigue, decreased cognitive ability, dizziness when standing quickly and skin that doesn’t immediately fall back into place when pinched.

      Final point of brew

      Drinking water is not always a one-size-fits-all approach, but finding the right amount of water for your activity level and climate is important! Primula offers a great selection of water bottles and tumblers to keep you hydrated all day! Try out the Sentinel infusion bottle if you want healthy, flavored waters on the go, or try out a double wall vacuum sealed bottle to keep your water cold for up to 24 hours. Whatever you choose to carry your water in, staying hydrated is an important factor in living a healthy life!

      Coffee Cup Conservation

      Coffee Cup Conservation

      Coffee Cup Conservation

      We’re reminded that each of us can play a part in helping to protect the environment and reducing the detrimental effects of pollution on our precious ecosphere. Every little bit helps.

      Coffee drinkers can make a difference simply by switching from paper coffee cups to reusable travel mugs.

      Kick the Paper Habit

      Did you know that more than 6.5 million trees are cut own every year just to make paper cups? As a result, the world’s rainforests disappearing rapidly – causing a devastating impact on our ecosystem. Additionally, 4 million gallons of water are used in the paper cup manufacturing process, and the fuel used by the trucks, trains and boats needed to distribute them add tremendously to the emission of greenhouse gases.

      Even though some paper cups are recyclable, most are not, both because of the coatings used and the fact that wet used cups are not recyclable. The majority of paper cups are coated with a polyethylene resin to help strengthen them – and these carcinogenic chemicals may even leach into your cup of java. Even cups that are biodegradable emit copious amounts of methane gas as they disintegrate in landfills – and 40% of the items decomposing in landfills are paper and cardboard.

      Upgrade to Reusables

      Be a part of the solution—and upgrade the function of your coffee mug—by getting yourself a reusable cup. For example, a thermal travel mug keeps your coffee piping hot for hours—or if you’re an iced coffee or cold brew fan, cold for up to 24! Can your paper or Styrofoam cup do that?

      Here are just a few of our favorite thermal travel mugs:

      Available in an array of colors in either a 20 oz or 32 oz size, Avalanche features a twist textured, easy-grip silhouette and keeps your coffee hot for up to 8 hours (or cold for even longer).

      The Discovery has a convenient wide-mouthed lid and a carrying handle and is available in small 17 oz or large capacity 40 oz sizes. Its double wall stainless interior keeps beverages at the right temperature all day long.


      The distinctively textured Hamilton has an 18 oz capacity, is available in charcoal or red and has a leak-proof lid for on-the-go-convenience— and it’s dishwasher safe too.


      Final Point of Brew:

      Here’s a cup of Earth Day common sense—you’ll be helping the environment and upgrading the function of your everyday coffee cup by kicking the disposable cup habit and investing in a portable coffee mug. Mother Earth thanks you!
