FAQs

What is good food to bring to the beach?

The answer to this question all depends on what you want to pack for the beach. If you don’t want to pack a cooler, then you’re not going to want to take anything with you that requires to be kept cold. You can easily cut up fresh fruit and veggies, as well as pack protein bites, granola bars, and simple snack mixes, too.

If you don’t mind packing a cooler to take with you to the beach, then you can literally make and take anything that you want. Sandwiches, side dishes like potato salad, coleslaw, and more!

How do you pack a cooler for the beach?

The size of your cooler will matter when it comes to packing for the beach. Be sure that you have ice and ice packets frozen and ready as these will be your main cold source for the trip.

To pack a cooker, start by putting some ice on the bottom of the cooler. Then pack in your items that need to be cold. Put them in so that they aren’t going to tip or spill or get smashed. Once you have everything in it that you want. Add more ice and fill it as full as possible with ice, and then add frozen ice packs on top.

Refrain from opening the lid a lot as that will let the cold air out, causing it to unthaw a lot quicker than it normally would.

What do you need for a day at the beach?

Obviously, you need a ton of homemade beach snacks for your day, but don’t forget that you’ll also need water or other liquids to stay hydrated.

Also, remember to protect your skin and pack sunscreen!
