A summary of summary of what we packed for the beach (in 10 minutes)

We got a late start today. Well, technically, I was up and at ’em getting work done before my boys woke up, but they slept in this morning. Not joking you, Quinn slept until 8:30 this morning. 8:30!!! People, this is the latest he’s slept in his whole life. We witnessed history in the making this morning! Haha!

Anyway, we had a bit of a late start to our day (I also squeezed in a 4 mile run), so we threw together our things for the beach, including iced coffee, lunch, and snacks, in like 10 minutes. I’ve received a few questions from readers/followers about some of our favorites that we typically bring to the beach, so I wanted to share. Of course, today is just one of many beach days, but I hope it gives you some quick and easy ideas for healthy beach eats!

First up, obviously, was iced coffee! Mal and I are committed to our morning iced coffee routine! 🙂 We’re loving the boxed cold brew from Wandering Bear Coffee. They recently sent me some to sample, and we’re in love. It’s so tasty and convenient! I also packed unsweetened vanilla Ripple, ice, tumbler, and glass straw to complete the package.

Once we had iced coffee, it was time to play. Quinn is still loving his digger! The beach was bumping this morning – the temps were in the 90s by the time we got there!

When lunchtime rolled around, we dug into our cooler. On the menu for Quinn: Pita pockets filled with hummus, a ProBugs pouch, strawberries, pineapple, and water. We also brought “cheesy crackers” from Trader Joe’s for him.

Please note: Quinn sharing his fruit with his new crab (shell) friend.

On the menu for Mal and me: Shredded Brussels sprouts with chicken breast, Primal Kitchen Caesar dressing, and Parmesan cheese. Yummm!

I also brought a couple bags of Spicy Dill Pickle Kettle Chips from Deep River Snacks. The flavor actually reminds me of fried pickles a little bit! 🙂

Other than that, we packed some cans of seltzer and more water, and we left the beach at 2:00 PM. It was definitely a fun day with delicious eats!
