Whether you are eating dinner on the patio or having a picnic in the park, here are some of our favorite tips and healthy recipes to enjoy while dining al fresco.

  • Keep it simple. Save the five-course meal for another time. Prepare a few dishes that are easy to make and good for sharing.
  • Avoid foods that spoil quickly. Some foods when left out for too long can spoil and make you sick. If you must have foods with a mayonnaise or dairy base, pack these items in a cooler to keep them from going bad.
  • Portable is key. Stick to foods that are easy to eat with your hands and aren’t messy. Sandwiches and wraps are great options. For foods like salads, pack them in individual mason jars or plastic cups with a fork in each.
  • Skip the utensils. When possible, assemble your foods with toothpicks or skewers and you won’t need to worry about having to pack extra utensils.
