By Emily Kho, Contributing Blogger

As the days get warmer and the skies clearer, it’s the perfect time to head outdoors for a picnic. Whether you’re planning a family outing, a romantic date, or a fun day with friends, having the right food can make all the difference. 

At RBX Active, we believe that delicious doesn’t have to mean unhealthy. Here are three mouth-watering picnic recipes that are both tasty and good for you!

Chickpea & Quinoa Mason Jar Salad

Mason jar salads are perfect for picnics. They’re easy to transport, portion-controlled, and you can shake them up right before eating to mix the dressing with the salad. This Chickpea & Quinoa Mason Jar Salad is light, refreshing, and packed with nutrients.


  • 1 cup canned chickpeas
  • 1 cup chopped cucumbers
  • 1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 3 - 4 cups arugula
  • Dressing:
    • 2 tablespoon olive oil
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Begin with the dressing. Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired.
  2. When ready to assemble the salads, evenly divide the dressing between 2 wide-mouth mason jars (quart size). Then evenly divide the remaining ingredients and add to the mason jars in the order listed. Seal with lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
  3. When serving, pour contents of the mason jar into a bowl. Stir around to help get the dressing distributed and enjoy!

Healthy Chicken Avocado Wraps


These Healthy Chicken Avocado Wraps are a great way to enjoy a filling and nutritious meal without the need for utensils. They’re easy to make and even easier to eat on the go.


  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and sliced
  • 6 large burrito size tortillas
  • 3 cups lettuce, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups yellow sharp cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Rinse and pat dry chicken breasts. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Preheat a pan on medium/high heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place the meat on the skillet and cover with a lid. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, then flip and cook for another 5 minutes. The timing will depend on the size of the chicken. Make sure that the internal temperature will reach 165-170°F.

  3. Put a large burrito size tortilla on a plate, layer with about ½ cup chopped lettuce, ¼ cup tomatoes, avocado, a tablespoon sour cream, few slices of grilled chicken, and top with ¼ cup grated sharp cheddar.
  4. Wrap them like an envelope. Repeat the same with the rest of the ingredients.
