WIAWbutton - What I Ate Wednesday #123: A Day at the Beach

For better or worse, the old saying that time flies when you’re having fun is totally true. This summer, busy as it’s been, has been a good one. When I haven’t been working my toenails off, I’ve been enjoying my free time. This past weekend, I even ventured out to Long Beach for some relaxation under the sun. The food certainly didn’t suck either. Here’s a day of beach eats:

  • Breakfast: Before heading out Saturday morning, I enjoyed a filling breakfast of salad, scrambled egg whites, and a whole wheat sandwich thin with hummus and roasted eggplant
  • Lunch: We picked up sandwiches at a grocery store near the beach. I went with turkey, lettuce, tomato, and mustard on whole wheat. Gotta love the typo.
  • Dinner: Oysters and “lobster bake,” which came with corn on the cob, clarified butter, cole slaw, and chips. The last 3 c’s went untouched (I will probably just never warm up to cole slaw or chips, and that is totally okay), but I was still a happy camper. There was also beer and wine involved.
  • Snacks: Some pineapple and strawberries at the beach; much later, a few thin mint cookies (2 or 3) and a few sips of skim milk before bed—random but it got my stomach to stop growling

What are some of your favorite things to eat at the beach?
