After a long morning of relaxing on the beach, you’ll want an easy snack to keep up your energy for more sunbathing and body surfing!
In order to save time, money, and calories, planning out healthy snacks is an important part of your beach vacation. Keep reading for our suggestions for both healthy and easy beach snacks.
Fruit: Ah, is there anything more refreshing than fresh fruit on the beach? Grapes, watermelon, apples, and kiwi are just a few of our favorites! You can even pre-cut it the night before so you’re all ready to go in the morning. Pack these wholesome treats in a small container to keep the beach eco-friendly!
Nuts: Fruit and nuts go hand in hand. Nuts are the perfect source of healthy fat, plus, all you have to do is throw them in your bag and go for an easy beach snack!
Rice Cakes: Rice cakes are so versatile and healthy, hence why we love taking these fluffy air-filled rounds to the beach. Spread hummus on them for a savory snack, or peanut butter and fruit to satisfy a sweet tooth in a healthy way! With only 7 grams of carbs each, you can’t go wrong with snacking on rice cakes. Just pack a few in an airtight container to prevent them from going stale and you’re golden.
Wholesome crisps: Have you heard of kale chips? Trust us, they’re actually really good! Thin, crispy kale is air dried and dusted with loads of nutrients your body craves. Plus, they come in their own airtight packaging so you all you have to do in toss them in your beach tote and off you go! Super simple!
Granola Bars: It can be quite tricky to pick the right granola bar, as many on the market are loaded with unnecessary sugar and additives. Be sure to check the label for bars that contain few ingredients, low sugar/natural sweeteners, and a healthy balance of carbs and fat. Again, they come in their own sealed package, so all you have to do is toss them in your bag and set off on your beach day.
Hopefully this post gave you some ideas for what to bring along on your next beach day! What snacks do you swear by on the beach? We’re all ears for new suggestions!
