One of the pleasures of summer is a day at the beach, alternating the walks along the shore with the bathrooms, visits to the beach bar and good times for family talk. In case you are going to spend the whole day by the sea, we give you our tips for a Homemade food on the beach, how to keep it fresh and enjoy it more.
The first and most important thing is to select which dishes we are going to take to the beach. It is important keep in mind that some ingredients like mayonnaise-which we like in summer in recipes such as Russian salad-, or eggs and potato tortillas, they are not good choices to take to the beach and we must choose to eat them at home, due to the risk of spoilage or be a farm field for salmonella bacteria or other food problems.Live to the Palate Five refreshing non-alcoholic cocktails and the best recipes and accessories to prepare them at home

For take them to the beach and keep them fresh until serving time, we recommend the large capacity thermos like this one of 1.2 liters, perfect to serve up to six glasses of these soups, keeping them very cold for hours.
Snacks and sandwiches to go
The Sandwiches and sandwiches are excellent options for eating on the beach, with the proviso that the bread will not be as appetizing and crispy at the time of packing our sandwiches as when opened by the sea. A good solution can be to carry the fillings prepared in zip bags or in tuppers or tarteras like those of Lekué, perfect for that function, and buy the recent bread in the bakery, making the sandwiches at the moment we are going to eat them.
Here we recommend up to 21 sandwiches and sandwiches that you could take to the beach if you fancy eating sandwich. To take them to the beach, you can use the sandwich holder covers that extend and serve as a tablecloth, which are comfortable and practical.

Whether you opt for the delicious meat empanada or if you choose the classic empanadas with tuna or any other variety such as the Galician sardinillas empanada, surely you will be very attractive when you leave the bathroom and exercise with the waves.
As they are good without having to take them refrigerated, it is worth keeping them fresh so that they do not ferment and are in optimal condition when we are going to eat them. In my family, we usually leave them for that reason for snack time. To eat them comfortably, We can use a peculiar fridge that transforms into a table where we can serve the different portions, sitting in the matching chairs.
On the other hand, if we want a crockery to serve all these foods, it is best to use the complete washable melamine collections that we can rinse at the moment and wash comfortably in the dishwasher when we get home. They also include plates, glasses and even cups for coffee, which we can take in another thermo if we feel like it.
Drinks and fruits to freshen up
A Classic to eat on the beach is the watermelon portion, very rich in water that you always want. Also, while the season lasts, cherries and pillory suits us very well. As well the natural pineapple It is an excellent option for summer.
As for the drinks, nothing more refreshing than the classic sangria, the rebujito, or the homemade lemonades in any of its varieties. Of course, It will also be good for us to have several bottles of mineral water to refresh ourselves throughout the day or a large canteen that keeps it fresh.
If you carry a good fridge for drinks and fruits, with its broad base with one or two bags of ice and leave it in the shade, you can have cold drinks and summer fruits for a few hours.
