7 Tips For Packing Lunch for the Beach

We’re in the dog days of summer and that means we’re smack dab in the middle of beach season. Planning a trip this weekend? Try these tips for packing the best foods to enjoy while you’re sitting in the sand.

  1. Bring low maintenance fruits. Don’t bring anything that needs to be peeled as it leaves a mess and might leave you with sticky hands.
  2. If you’re packing a sandwich, think about making it a wrap. Wraps are easier to eat with one hand and can easily be kept in foil to avoid a mess.
  3. Bring a separate bag for your trash to avoid having wrappers blow away on the beach.
  4. Use ice packs instead of ice in your cooler to avoid a soggy mess at lunch time.
  5. Bring plenty of wet wipes for your hands to avoid getting sand on your finger foods.
  6. Prefer not to eat with your hands? Pack something in a plastic container that you can eat with a fork (think salads or burrito bowls – yum!)
  7. Make sure to have plenty of water to stay hydrated while you soak up the sun!
