Picnic with your Jenny Craig Food

By Jenny Craig

Make your picnic healthier by packing a nutritious meal and everything you need for a fun activity after you eat. Spend a summer afternoon or evening soaking in the sunshine and breathing in the fresh air with these tips for a healthy, perfect picnic.

 

Sneak in extra exercise for you and your family by pedaling to a nearby park for your picnic. Skipping the car and choosing to ride your bike can burn around 100 calories in 20 minutes, even at a leisurely pace. To make packing your food easier, have everyone carry their own, individually packed lunch in a backpack, and don’t forget to wear a helmet! Pack refreshing, low-calorie drinks

 

Healthy Drinks

Ditch the sugary soda and fill water bottles with flavor-infused water. While you’re making breakfast in the morning, drop a cup of freshly sliced fruit into a pitcher of water and stir before chilling in the refrigerator. Your flavor-boosted H2O will be ready to go at lunchtime. Experiment by pairing different fruits with herbs, such as strawberries and mint, blueberries and basil, or lemon and rosemary.

 

Healthy Picnic Food Choices 

Jenny Craig has several on-the-go menu options that are perfect for your next picnic. Whether it’s a day at the beach, a hike to a lunch spot in the mountains, or just an afternoon at the park to play catch with the kids, check out these five portable Jenny Craig foods to bring with you on your next outing.
