Picnics create memories: The food, the company, the vibe-everything seems better in the open air. Even ants and strawberry stains are okay when you're sharing a meal with friends on a sunny day.
Eating well outside takes only a little extra planning. Almost anything can be portable if you pack it in a tightly sealed container. Instead of trying to put together a complete menu that will appeal to everyone, fill your picnic basket with a variety of good, light choices, such as the ones we've gathered here.
Surprised to see some of the items in this collection? Eggs are low in calories (about 75 for a large one) and loaded with protein and nutrients such as vitamin B12 and selenium. Plus, these deviled ones are made with olive oil, not mayo-simple substitutions like that figure into many of our hearty-but-wholesome hamper picks. Want to up the health factor even more? Try using whole wheat wraps and pasta.
Now get outside-and don't forget the napkins and utensils!
