We're out at the neighborhood pool all. the. time. And while I like to support our team (and the team we're visiting) by spending at concessions, it really adds up!
So for our meets, I prefer to pack meals for the whole family. It needs to be easy, it needs to be healthy, and it needs to be packable.
We use our Easy Lunchboxes and a cooler, and everyone brings their water bottle. It takes a little time to prep, but it's worth it to have healthy swim meet dinners.
Our Favorite Swim Meet Dinners
For years we've enjoyed our Spinach and Feta Pasta Salad, but I love finding new recipes to jazz things up.
Check out these 10 Swim Meet Dinners – salads and sandwiches – that are perfect for you to pack and eat at your next swim meet (or anytime you're at the pool!).
Balsamic Chicken Salad from Living Sweet Moments
This one is great because I can put mine over lettuce for a salad and I can pack the kids wraps or sandwiches. It's so versatile and delicious that there's usually no complaints either way!
Easy Chicken Greek Salad Wrap Sandwich from Snappy Gourmet
Easy wraps are amazing. They are not only great for swim meet dinners, they're also awesome for lunches throughout the week. I can make a batch and the kids can pack them for their lunches or after school snacks!
Oriental Chicken Salad from Chef in Training
This salad is so unique and delicious that no one even realizes they're eating a healthy salad. It's loaded with fresh flavors, textures, and of course it's easy to throw into a container for dinner on the go!
BLT Egg Salad from Two Healthy Kitchens
This egg salad can go onto toast, into a wrap, or you can serve it over lettuce for a healthy and protein packed salad! The possibilities are endless and that's kind of the point, right? It has to be easy and versatile.
Pesto Chicken Wraps from Andrea's Notebook
This pesto chicken is so tasty. You can wrap these up quickly and dinner on the go never tasted so good! The whole family really loves these and you can use whatever wraps you have on hand…the chicken shines here no matter what you wrap it up in!
Tortellini Chickpea Pasta Salad from MoneywiseMoms
My chickpea pasta salad is always a hit. The tortellini gives it plenty of substance and helps keep everyone going and performing their best!
Quinoa Edamame Salad from Living Sweet Moments
Quinoa salads are one of my favorites. They're naturally packed with great stuff like protein to keep our bodies going through practice, homework, and all our daily activities and they last so well. I can make a batch at the beginning of the week for us to eat at all week long!
Chicken Pinwheels from All She Cooks
This is just a fun way to serve up those wraps that we're always making so feel free to chop those suckers up into pinwheels too. It's a great idea if you have picky eaters! Sometimes all it takes is a new presentation!
Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad from Two Healthy Kitchens
Who doesn't love buffalo chicken?! It's such a great flavor combo…now you can enjoy it in a pasta salad that packs like a dream for lunches, dinner at swim meets and more.
Vegetarian Greek Quinoa Salad from MoneywiseMoms
Rather than falling back on pizza and other concession food, I love being able to eat a healthy meal myself and give the kids meals filled with veggies.
These are great meals for lunches poolside as well as swim meet dinners. Curious what we pack our dinners in? Take a peek at our favorites:
Good luck at your swim meets!
