Summer is here! And summer means beach trips! Whether you spend your time at the beach swimming, tanning, or running, you’re going to get hungry. It can be tempting to buy ice cream or hot dogs at the concession stand, but you won’t feel so good after you eat them. Beach snacks are also often overpriced. Save money and calories by packing your own snacks. Homemade snacks are always healthier than store-bought ones, and our skinny snacks are tastier than store-bought ones, too! Put on your swimsuit and sunscreen, grab a towel and one of these 13 best beach snacks, and you’re ready to go!
1. Green Goddess Dip & fresh veggies
This green goddess tip is full of superfoods. It has avocado, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, Greek yogurt, which is high in protein and calcium, and fresh herbs, which contain antioxidants.
Add a kick to your hummus by adding some avocado. It’s a great way to get some healthy fats and extra fiber along with your protein. It tastes great with our easy whole-grain pita chips.
We bet you didn’t know that butternut squash makes delicious chips! It’s also high in fiber and vitamin A, which makes it a healthier chip base than potatoes.
Kale chips are the classic veggie chip for a reason. They’re packed with nutrients, but they’re also remarkably crunchy, light, and addictive.
Nuts make a great snack in any season. They’re a great source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. They’re also delicious, especially when roasted with maple syrup and spices.
