Beach snacks are the best because you don’t have to leave your towel to be refreshed.
I live near a beach but not an ocean beach. We have a pond with a lifeguard and it saves us on hot summer days. One of the key features of this beach for my children is the “Snack Shack” which sells kale, carrots, cucumber slices…..zzzzzz…..
I must have been dreaming :)
You guys know what is at the Snack Shack! Doritos, Coke, Hot Dogs, Twizzlers, etc. My kids save up their allowance to spend it at the shack because I won’t buy the crap with my money. I bring healthy food just in case they decide not to spend their hard earned dollars (but they always buy something).
I don’t actually think that having a treat from the Snack Shack is a terrible thing. There is one person in the group who is studiously trying to avoid the frozen Snickers bars and that would be ME.
How do I avoid the Snack Shack? First, I have a groovy picnic basket/cooler which is ready to go. The key for me is to have a cold drink so I fill a water bottle with ice cubes.
I pack my basket with some cooler ice and fruit. Slices of watermelon, apples, peaches, and cantaloupe are in plastic containers and ready to eat. I also pack frozen grapes to keep everything cool and they are delicious to munch on.
Fresh fruit is an obvious choice for a hot day as well as lots of cold water. The key for me is to keep everything cold so I won’t be tempted to buy something cold.
Here are some more ideas for the beach:
- Grab your favorite flavored yogurt and freeze it for a wonderful replacement for the larger serving size of frozen yogurt.
