A successful beach trip is filled with sun, sand and snacks. When packing for a day at the beach we recommend things that easily transportable. Here's where you should start:
1. Fruits and fruit salad
My summer favorites are mango and pineapple. Try cutting chunks of your favorite fruit and packing them in a container with a tight lid. Any fruit works for this: grapes, strawberries and frozen peaches are other options.
2. Trail Mix
Making my own sweet-and-salty mix is always the best. Combine cashews, raisins, dry-roasted peanuts, dried cranberries and even mini pretzels.
3. Raw veggies with dip
Vegetables make for a refreshing beach snack. Try celery sticks and whole baby carrots, and add a small container of low-fat dip.
It's filled with protein and will fill you up. Choose low-fat string cheese or baby cheese rounds for single servings. Take crackers or breadsticks to eat with the cheese.
5. Granola bars
This is the easiest go-to. Pick a granola bar that's healthy and tasty. Some of our favorites are Fiber One bars and Planters NUT-rition's Bone Health Bar.
