Summer Snacks!

Durning the summer, we're all a lot busier (between work and our social lives), and we all try to eat a lot better.  So I thought for this Saturday post I'd talk about some healthy (and easy) summer snacks!

Fresh Fruit : During the summer fresh fruit is one of the best snacks you can eat!  Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, bananas (the list goes on and on), are all amazing in the summer!  They also make great snacks to go!  Cut some up the night before and put in a container, so when you're in a rush in the morning you can simply grab and go.  Also during these hot summer days, try leaving some fruit in your freezer for about 30 minutes to have some chilled (not frozen) fruit. 

Smoothies : Another great snack on the go (and you can use fresh fruit too).  Blend up some fruit, yogurt (or vanilla ice cream) and some ice, and pesto, you have a smoothie!

Popsicles :  Buying popsicles from the grocery store can be costly, and aren't that great for you.  Instead invest in a popsicle tray (Ikea has cheap ones) and pour in some fruit juice, or lemonade.  Or if you want to get fancy, you can freeze a smoothie. 

Fresh Veggies : Like fruit, fresh vegetables are in abundance during the summer time.  Take advantage of this and stock your fridge up with tones of veggies.  To save time, wash, chop and store your veggies ahead of time so all you have to do is grab the container!

What are your favourite snacks for summer time?

  1. Prepping fruits and veggies is such a great tip because a lot of the time people will grab something thats already in there sight and ready to go which is usually something unhealthy!

    great post.
    I love fruits and veggies but I have been pretty bad at avoiding the sweets lately!
