Essential #3: Convenient Healthy, Delicious Food
If you are a Costco fan like me you will love these ultimate picnic meals. They are delicious and healthy, a perfect addition to your picnic. My first recommendation is the Cilantro Lime Shrimp (see picture below). This dish is a protein-packed, zero carbohydrate, a low-fat option that is light and perfectly paired with your favorite white wine!
You may want to add a few of these shrimp to my next recommendation which is the large Spinach Salad, again from Costco. Now for this dish, I am not a fan of a sweet salad (or sweet dressing), and because I am watching the carbs and sugar, I omit the dried cranberries and poppy seed dressing. All the ingredients are placed in rows, so opening the container and removing what you do not want is not as hard as it may seem. I also just bring along my own dressing, I do keep the poppy seed because my husband likes it!
Essential #4: A beautiful location
It looks as though our North Georgia weather is finally going to be warming up! Now would be the perfect time to plan a picnic for you and your family or your special someone! There are so many places to have your picnic here around Lake Lanier, and if you are not from Georgia as you look for the perfect location, keep in mind the beauty of nature and an isolated, private setting for the perfect picnic!
