Water play takes a lot out of us so it's crucial to re-energize during the day. Fresh chicken salad sandwiches on whole grain bread, grapes, trail mix, cranberry juice and plenty of water are essential for any beach outing.

I LOVE s'mores at the beach. We normally go camping in the outer banks during the summer, and have nightime bonfires - s'mores are a MUST.

I would take this basket of goodies and pack up the kids and head to the closest beach, which would be Standley Lake for us!

I would bring some home-made mango salsa with crunchy tortilla chips. Home-made chicken salad with pecans and grapes and soft tortillas to at it with. Tortilla's make the best edible plates and silverware. For something sweet, I would make a pan of decadent dark chocolate brownies. I also bring along a frisbee and some softball mitts and maybe some bubbles. Lets go!!

when i go to the beach (or park, or pool... or even my parent's backyard!) i like to take along an ice packed cooler full of fresh vegetables, leafy greens, deli meat, cheese, at least two different salad dressings, potato chips (that had been stored in the freezer overnight) and plenty of bottled water. it's so refreshing to have ice cold snacks in the heat of summer! :D

After I pack plenty of sunblock and aloe, I LOVE lemonade, a good fruity white wine, beer for the hubby and wrap sandwiches. Kettle chips and fruit, especially watermelon to snack on during the day. We also pack plenty of nuts - we love almonds, sunflower seeds, etc.

My favorite season is Summer and just laying out, relaxing, listening to the birds, swimming in the ocean, and the sounds around me brings a smile to my face. I like to pack in season fruits and vegetables, healthy snacks, plenty of water, seltzers, lemonade. I would love to win a "Life's A Beach Gift Basket" with many wonderful choices in it as well as staying healthy.

For a day at the beach I always include chilled summer fruits-cut up, of course- with a nice loaf of bread and several cheeses. Fresh lemonade amped up with some frozen raspberries, peaches or strawberries to use as ice cubes keep us hydrated. Plain water works well with the frozen fruit as ice cubes too.Snacks need to include some proteins to keep our energy up but have to be light enough to be appetizing on a hot day. A veggie salad with TVP or tofu works well and isn't a danger if it isn't super cold like chicken or tuna salad though if I have plenty of cooler space I will include them. Alcohol needs to be kept to a minimum until the sun goes down. It dehydrates you. When the sun sets I get out a white wine and fruit spritzer with a dash of sparkling water. All in all, for a day in the water, foods needs to be colourful, cool,and refreshing. Plenty of sunblock ensures that we will have happy memories the next day too.

I love having healthy snacks available for my family at the beach. Having fresh fruit like watermelon, peaches and grapes are a great snack. We enjoy it so much everytime we go.

I'm a big fan of fresh fruits, nuts, cheese and crackers. I keep my lights bite because the last thing you want is bloat at the beach! To keep hydrated I stock lots of H20, Vita coco water and Kombutcha!

My pick would be veggies and hummus plus fruit especially grapes because they travel easy and aren't messy!

We love to take seedless watermelon chunks and chewy fruity granola bars, w/o chocolate - can melt onto little hands and get on Everything. We also pack a couple of damp washcloths in a non-breakable storage container with some ice cubes. great for getting the sticky watermelon juice off of fingers.

The best food for packing at the beach is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Not only are they nutritious, but they cleanse the palate of all the salt water. They pack very well and don't require refrigeration. If refrigeration is available, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are refreshing. They are easy on the budget, too!
