This time of year always takes me back to being a kid. Great memories of being at the beach. My mom could never pull me out of the water, I would ride the waves and float on my raft as long as the sun was up. The only rule back then was wait 45 minutes after you eat before you go back into the water.
Bring lots of water, fresh fruits and food to keep your group hydrated and fueled for all that energy that will be expended. Use water safety and listen to what the lifeguards say. As silly as that may sound, many people don’t adhere and crazy rip tides can occur when storms appear.
Here’s a quick recipe for Apple Coleslaw. Use fruit and fruit juice vs heavy full fat mayo for fantastic flavor. It’s also loaded with fiber. It will go with any meal you prepare this holiday. I also used Vegenaise to lighten it up.
