Food is one of the greatest things in life that unites people, and is only made better by who you’re with and where you’re eating. Having food and drinks as you sit mesmerized by the waves crashing on the shore with your loved ones is truly one of the greatest and simplest joys in life.
The difficulty in achieving this must-have experience would lie in the logistics. Having lunch by the beach is accompanied by the complications of bringing cutlery and plates, looking for a surface to eat on, and even finding something easy enough to be eaten quickly. Moreover, eating by the beach can result in trash and waste that you will have to lug around until you find a rubbish bin.
To help ease this experience, we’ve compiled a list of four of the best and easiest packed lunch ideas for your next trip to Krabi Beach.
1. Fruits and Vegetables
Probably the easiest to prepare, a container filled with an assortment of sliced fruits and vegetables is still the best food idea when considering eating by the beach. This option actually minimizes the amount of waste you have, and if there even is any, it is mostly biodegradable. Having fruits and vegetables by the beach is a truly refreshing feast, both for your eyes and for your entire body.
For a bonus, you can make a side salad to help fill your tummy up. To do away with bringing along multiple dressings, opt for grain-based salads instead, such as couscous or quinoa and mix it all with some chopped vegetables drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
2. Grilled Skewers
Grilled skewers are an amazing way to prepare food without thinking too much of cutlery. You can have an assortment of skewers in your food container, whether they’re meat, seafood, or even vegetables! A few of these would be enough to fill you up and can even prove to be more filling than fruits and vegetables. Bring along some tiny containers of sauce to add some more zing to your meals—although salt and pepper are delectable options.
Preparing a wrap is much like preparing a sandwich, but if done properly, it can be much less messy. Usually comprised of meat and vegetables smeared with hummus or garlic sauce encased in a tortilla wrap, this food option ensures that everything stays in the wrap without falling off. With this, you can still have the whole heavy meal as you would with a sandwich while avoiding the messy meal after clean-ups.
There really isn’t much explaining to do because pizza is one of the best meals for any occasion! A slice of pizza is the best companion to any travel because it is easy to transport, lasts long, leaves almost zero waste, and can be customized for any person. It can be eaten entirely by hand and is sure to fill you up for a meal. Eat it with ice-cold soda, and you’ve got yourself a winning meal!
These meals are all easy to prepare, pack, and eat, and ensure that very minimal waste is left behind! Bringing along some ice-cold drinks will go a long way to fully enjoy it, and adding ice cream for dessert to top it all would leave you with one of the best memories to brag about.
