Nothing beats food in summer. Produce is more vibrant, and it’s the perfect season to eat fresher and healthier than ever.
One of my favorite things to do on hot days is load up a small cooler with salads, snacks, and treats and head to the local beach or park. Since 4th of July weekend is coming up, I figured this would be a perfect time to share my favorite healthy picnic recipes for summer with you!
Note: if you don’t have a cooler yet, I purchased this one (pictured above) and absolutely LOVE it! It’s the perfect size for packing two salads, veggies, hummus, and dessert — and it’s still light and easy to carry!
