If we looked inside your beach cooler, what would we find? Diet soda, chips or maybe a sandwich if you were feeling fancy? Probably. Instead of packing the usual suspects, opt for healthier alternatives to satisfy your hunger pangs. Here are six healthy upgrades to your beach cooler.
Elevate your beach day with the ever-classy combo of cheese and crackers. A low-fat string cheese will give you a boost of protein and keep you fuller longer. Go a step further and pair your cheese with flaky crackers or apple wedges.
Craving chips and dip? Hummus and sliced veggies, like carrots or celery, are the healthier version of your go-to beach snack. If veggies just aren’t doing it for you (we know, sometimes they just don’t cut it), then bring along a bag of whole-wheat pita chips or pretzels as a crunchy substitute.
Sponsored Fresh fruit might be your standard healthy sweet treat, but have you ever tried to eat pineapple at the beach? Things can get…sticky. Do yourself a favor and bring along fruit cups, like Del Monte Fruit Refreshers. At only 100 calories or less, they’re an individually-packed snack that will leave you feeling refreshed...and you won’t have to go into the water to wash your hands off.
We know it’s hard to resist the urge to run to the ice-cream truck the second you hear that familiar jingle, but hear us out: You can make your own healthier ice pops at home the night before your beach day. Try this simple recipe for deliciously creamy coconut pops.
The perfect sweet and savory snack is crunchy granola. Make your own at home with your favorite ingredients like nuts, dried fruit and sunflower seeds. Mmmm, who ever said a little food prep is no day at the beach?
