The Best Beach Foods!
Hitting the beach requires preparation! Sunblock, towels, sunglasses, hats, coolers, chairs – and then there’s the inevitable question of “what’s for lunch?”
While a great way to spend the day, all that sun and sand presents a few challenges when it comes to food. Luckily, beach lunches and snacking are an art form we’re happy to share our expertise on!
If there’s any go-to for the beach, it has to be sandwiches! Utensil and fuss-free, sandwiches are also great because they can handle some time outside of a cooler. You can load it with your favorite meats, cheeses, veggies and more – but the best beach sandwiches are those with a tropical twist. Try Hawaiian BBQ Chicken (above), Cuban or Jerk Chicken!
Protein! Carbs! Fruits! Veggies! Calcium! With the right snack box you can enjoy the whole nine yards in an easy, budget-friendly, no-cook way that even the smallest beach-goer could prepare! All you need is a fruit, a veggie, a dip for the veggie, a cheese and your favorite nuts to complete this super healthy AND delicious beach snack.
On a hot beach, a fresh salad can be just what the doctor ordered. Make quick work of your salads by preparing them ahead of time in perfectly-portioned to-go cups! You can make them ready to eat with a light dressing or keep the dressing on the side to apply just before eating. Simply toss your salad before putting it into the cups, add your dressing and shake for maximum deliciousness!
All the same elements that make sandwiches great, but way more fun! These are a great way to cut down on the carbs while still enjoying the fork-free life. You can go for a more grown up options like caprese, turkey club, BLT, etc. or really have some fun with dessert kabobs!
Pinwheels rock for quite a few reasons! They are perfectly bite-sized, great for kids and adults alike. They look and taste delicious from all the awesome ingredients you can pile into them. Most don’t require cooking, and you can make them any way you want. Simply whip up your wraps, pile them in a Tupperware container and serve with toothpicks! Great pinwheel combos include Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil (above), Ham & Cheese, Jalapeño Popper, Classic Italian, Taco and more!
