Best Foods to Make and Bring to the Beach

There’s nothing quite like a fun-filled day at the beach, but packing a meal suitable for eating on the shore can often take the wind out of your sails. There are certain rules that seasoned beach picnic-packers know, like the fact that anything lettuce-based isn’t going to stand up well after an hour or so (even in a cooler), and that sticky stuff is a sand magnet. But all that aside, there are some great options when it comes to beach foods. Keep these options in mind, whether you’re going for tasty snacks or a full-on meal. Here are a few ideas and suggestions for a meal that minimizes mess, maximizes convenience and holds its own against the elements.
