During a recent trip to Florida, the family and I decided to visit Clearwater Beach, about an hour or so drive from Orlando.
We figured we would spend most of the day there so we packed snacks, lunch and plenty of water.
I love the convenience of the pack and go Nutrisystem meals. No refrigeration required. No cooking. Just open up when I'm ready to eat.
My favorite is the Nutrisystem Tuna Salad. 13 grams of protein in each packet. Water chestnuts and onion add a little crunch to the Nutrisystem Tuna Salad. Nutrisystem suggests serving it as a sandwich with a wheat roll or as a salad topper.
I'm not much for tuna sandwiches and salads at the beach but I love lettuce wraps. Lettuce wraps are a perfect meal for the beach. Easy to make and easy to pack.
Nutrisystem Tuna salad lettuce wraps are easy to make simply open the pouch and spoon onto a large leaf of romaine lettuce, roll and enjoyI
I like to jazz my tuna salad up a bit by adding a little extra onion, some relish and horseradish mustard.
Did you know romaine lettuce is one of the unlimited veggies you can enjoy while on Nutrisystem?
With lunch packed it was off to the beach. The marina as you approach Clearwater Beach is gorgeous. Lots of fancy boats and yachts docked on both sides.
There were lots of resort condos along the coastline. We met a couple who was visiting Florida with a church group from Nashville, Tennessee. They decided to break away from their group for a night and treat their kids to a day of relaxation at Clearwater Beach. They lucked up on a condo rental just steps away from the beach.
Had to snap this pic of a guy strolling along with his metal detector. He stopped and chatted with us when one of the kids asked if had found anything. "Not today" he replied.
At one point the sun just seemed to land directly over the water's endless edge. Everyone took notice. People were pointing at what seemed like a huge yellow, beach ball just bouncing on the water.
We watched as the sun set along the warm ocean waters.
What are some of your favorite foods to pack for lunch on the beach?
