Healthy Snacks For A Day At The Beach


Once again, the scorching summer heat is here with us. And this means one thing, lots of weekends and work vacations will be spent at the beach if it’s not sunbathing, then it is surfing or kayaking. That also implies that you’ll find yourself packing healthy food and drinks as long as you’re trying to avoid the customary snack at the ocean shack that is often laced with too much sugar. Here are some of the best options you can try:

  • Dried Fruit and Nuts – Without a doubt, this is among one of the perfect nutritional snacks combination that you can tow down the beach. Not only is it easily customizable – you can play around with a mix of your favorite dried fruit and unsalted nuts combo – but it also comes packed with just the right dose of omega-3 proteins and carbohydrates.
  • Finger-licking Skewers – There’s no denying that food served on skewers tastes the best on a beach. Whether you go for the meat, the veggies or the kabobs, it is always a hands-off, palatable experience. To add on that, given that it is utensil-free, this also means that easier to clean up and eliminates the need to carry unnecessary utensils as extra baggage to the beach.
  • Pasta Salad – Who really doesn’t love Pasta? The deal is made even juicier by considering the fact that Pasta holds up pretty decently well in the heat. Something that is best replicated only by couscous.
  • Cheese and Charcuterie – Indeed, we are not refuting that cheese and salami are not exactly the best definition of a mid-afternoon wholesome meal, but if you’re planning to laze around until sunset, then these can double up as very convenient bites. They require no absolutely no special assembly and they can also be eaten easily without any utensils.
  • Lettuce Wraps – These may sound and seem overly complicated, but they can work wonders in lieu of ordinary salad. In this scenario, consider wrapping up the chopped vegetable and other accompanying components in a large iceberg lettuce leaves from which you can then peel back and devour when the hunger pangs strike.
  • Bananas and Peanut Butter – A strange combination indeed, but no less nutritious as well as delicious. Bananas are particularly loaded up with potassium and are considered powerhouses of vitamins C and B6 by leading nutritionists. You can spice this up by adding a sizable helping of raw veggies such as chopped carrots, broccoli, and red bell pepper to this ensemble.
