Shall we go on a picnic in Madrid? Forget about the typical sandwiches or chips; there are healthy alternatives and places to enjoy them.

The good weather and the longer days encourage you to get out of the house more and enjoy the fresh air and the sun. The plans include meals out, and what better way to save money and have a fun time with family, friends, or a partner than by having a picnic in Madrid, taking advantage of any of its parks and gardens?

Healthy Picnic Food Options

Picnics should include light, easy-to-carry, and easy-to-eat items. Use sandwiches, the typical potato omelette and breaded foods; complement it with salads

It is better to take the dressing separately and add it at the last moment before eating, since the vinegar and oil would modify the texture and flavor of the food, especially vegetables. You can take some snacks, like some sausage and cheese, to prepare some toasts, hummus with vegetable crudités, some nuts, or some preserves, such as cockles.

For dessert, what better than a mixture of multiple fruits, which will also help us hydrate? In fact, the best drink we can choose is water, although for those reluctant, flavored water with lemon and mint or orange slices and mint can be prepared at home.

Places to go for a Picnic

We recommend Buen Retiro Park and the surroundings of the Palacio de Cristal are good enclaves, as well as the Egyptian Temple of Debod.

You can visit El Capricho Park, known as one of the best tourist sites to go to, due to its green areas and impressive landscapes that are drawn in the surroundings. Others of good taste are the Parque de las Siete Tetas, which will make you fall more and more in love with the capital, or La Casa de Campo, where you can go by cable car, allowing you to see beautiful views and have moments of privacy.
