I don't often go to the beach, but we try to go at least a few times during the summer. We have a beach nearby so I usually don't think of packing any picnic food. A few snacks and juice or water is sufficient. However, we decided to try going to a different beach about 40 minutes away and that's when I started thinking about what to bring for lunch.
I'm not much of a lunch packer as I prefer to buy my lunch so I kept things as simple as possible so that we wouldn't have too many leftovers.
Here are a few picnic food ideas that I wanted to bring:
Egg Salad Sandwiches
Corn on the cob
Of course, we ended up bringing most of the food on the list and ate a lot of it since we stayed at the beach through lunch and dinner! It was a great beach and so much fun. There was a fried chicken place a few minutes away so we added that to our picnic food as well!
