Snack In Sanity During Your Summer Activities!

Posted & filed under Health Nut.

What-A-Ya Nuts?! When it comes to summertime, there are a million places to be and only a few months to squeeze in all the fun!

Whether you’re headed to the pool, your kid’s summer camp, the park, on a road trip, or a 4th of July parade, carnival, or bbq, one thing is for sure: you’re gonna need a snack! The last thing you want to do is get stuck out of the house without anything for you & your friends or family to munch on during all your activities.

Now, think about the foods that were standard in the past for all your summertime fun. On a nice day at the pool, the staples were candy, pretzels & nachos with cheese, a basket of fries, sodas, and everything else bad for us that we could get our hands on. During the 4th of July there are funnel cakes, red meats galore, and chips everywhere. Whatever the activity, it’s rare that you’ll find a delicious AND healthy snack when considering the summertime staples. 

These days though, we know that a Better For You snack will keep us feeling better and going for longer in the summertime heat! There is no room to slow down after eating when there is so much to do and such little time! That’s why we encourage you to look into the easy to carry snacking options you can take anywhere this summer. 

Frozen Grapes

There is nothing better than a frozen snack during the summertime, and this one is super simple! The process of freezing grapes makes them more refreshing than ever, easier to carry without bruising, and perfect for the heat!

Apple Pops

Don’t stop with just grapes though! Grab some apples, chop them up, throw some peanut or almond butter on them, and turn them into delicious Apple Pops! They are both delicious and Better For You than normal popsicles!

Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups

Store bought fruit roll-ups are chock full of added sugars and preservatives you’ll never find in your fresh fruit. Don’t worry though! Making your own homemade fruit roll-ups is really easy and makes for a delicious, healthy snack this summer!

No-Bake Granola Bars

Fruit roll-ups aren’t the only store bought snack you can make Better For You in your own home! Before your next summer activity, try making some homemade granola bars! The best part is, you can crush up some of our delicious nut clusters to add the right amount of flavor to any recipe!
