5 Things to Pack in Your Beach Cooler

The long, relaxing days on the beach spent with friends and family make Summer memories that take us through the colder months. Make those beach days last by packing a cooler full of healthy items; you'll be able to refuse a second trip to the ice cream truck, and you won't have to head home early from a grumbling tummy. Healthy beach preparation will be a cinch when you remember to have these five things on hand. And don't forget the sunscreen!

  1. Water: Bring a reusable water bottle or two full of cold water to prevent dehydration and headaches. Need some variety? Fill one of the bottles with refreshing unsweetened iced tea.
  2. Fruit: Toss a fruit salad in Tupperware, bring along some in-season cherries, or pack a bunch of easy-to-eat grapes.
  3. Veggies and hummus: Spoon hummus into a small container and cut up veggies, like peppers and carrots, for dipping. Cherry tomatoes are also delicious, especially in Summer.
  4. Sandwiches: Use whole wheat pita instead of bread to reduce the soggy factor, and stuff it with mayo-free fillings like veggies and sliced deli meat. Remember, you don't want to put warm food directly in the cooler. If you want a grilled chicken sandwich, prepare the chicken the night before, let it cool, and refrigerate so it's good to go in the morning.
  5. String cheese: Include a couple sticks of reduced-fat string cheese for a satisfying, slightly salty snack.
