I hope you are having a great weekend. It certainly has been steamy down here in South Carolina, and I have been able to get down to the beach the last few days. The big question is: What to eat at the beach??
You don’t want to eat the wrong foods, for obvious reasons. The easiest way to ruin a beach day might just be to eat something that bloats you out and then you feel fat and huge. Just a terrible feeling! On the other hand, being in the sun, body surfing in the ocean, playing frisbee and any other fun beach activities will make you hungry. So you will want to eat something.
Here’s what I like to do: I bring a whole pitcher of the Ultimate Green Smoothie down to the beach that I made first thing in the morning. That way it is ice cold. Of course the ideal is the situation I am in here- where the beach is right in front of my villa. It allows me to run back and forth between the fridge and the beach. I brought down the Green Smoothie when I got hungry and went through the whole container first (between a few people).
Then I’ll go swimming, etc. for a while. When I get hungry again, I like to have fruit next. If I am pretty hungry, I like to have fruit with the fatty fruit of avocado. Avocado is so filling with good beauty fat, fiber and minerals. Avocado with fruit is just about the perfect beach food, besides young coconuts. Here I am having my Papaya Enzyme Salad.

What I DON’T want to eat is salty, processed foods like potato chips, Sun chips or the dreaded Soy Chips (!). Of course we avoid at all costs the french fries and club sandwiches which might also be readily available beachfront! Focus on how refreshing and delicious your fresh plant-based smoothies and fruit/salads are, and one of my other favorite recipes is my taco salad recipe with avocado!
For dinner at the beach, I’m pretty hungry. Here I made dinner to eat out on the porch. My Raw Cauliflower “Mashed” Potatoes are featured to the left on the plate. For the RECIPE CLICK HERE.
I know- I can be a big dork sometimes. :)
Take care of yourself!
With Lots of Love, Kimberly
