Summer is the perfect season for outdoor eats. There’s nothing like a picnic in the park on a gorgeous summer day. If you’ve given up gluten or are on a healthy eating kick, there’s no need to let that upcoming backyard party or picnic with a friend throw you off course.Grab your basket (or a yoga bag), a blanket (a yoga towel) and impress your pals with these picnic perfect gluten-free recipes.

Nothing says summer like gluten-free eats in the grass:

The main meal

The only rule you have to follow for the perfect picnic meal is to make sure all of your dishes are easily transportable. We love this avocado pea tartine because it can easily be wrapped up in a brown rice tortilla or spread on a piece of gluten-free bread. Almost all of the recipes in this summer salad slideshow will easily store in a large container you can take with you.

Raise a glass

On a warm summers day, even a casual picnic can make you thirsty, so be sure to stay hydrated with plenty of water. If you’re in the mood for something with a lot of flavor, try one of these healthy drinks or make this easy watermelon pineapple agua fresca with Thai basil.


End your perfect day in the park with the perfect dessert. Cookies are great for picnics because they're easy carry along with you and don’t require utensils to eat. Whip up a batch of these post-yoga magic cookies, packed with tons of healthy ingredients, to replenish your body and satisfy a sweet tooth. If you’re feeling a little more indulgent, these gluten-free and dairy-free chewy chocolate cookies will not disappoint. Not really a baker? Pick up one of these gluten-free snacks.
