Snacking Summer Style

Right now I am in NYC for the day shopping until I drop so here is a scheduled post!
During the summer months instead of eating large meals, I usually gravitate toward fresh fruits and veggies and fun treats. I am a lifeguard and sometimes I like to bring something to snack on. However, I hate eating something unhealthy while I am life guarding because it makes me feel extra guilty because I sit in a chair for several hours at a time. These are my go-to summer snacks that are somewhat healthy, delicious and quick!With all of this hype surrounding the "good fat" in certain nuts, I had to find something that I would like! These are just perfect. I love the container too. No refrigeration or preparation needed. It also gives me my chocolate fix in a much healthier way. No more carting around chocolate only to have it melt in the heat, these almonds contain a light dusting of powder so it's also clean! They come in 100 calorie packs as well, and while I do like that, I find that taking the almonds in the canister is much more convenient.I have always had a thing for hummus, but my true love is red pepper hummus. My favorite companion is the baby carrot--a very orange snack but it's too delicious and nice and refreshing on a hot day.I could probably eat the entire pint of any flavor of Whole Fruit sorbet in one sitting. It's fat free, and maybe not the healthiest because of the sugar, but it's relatively low in calories and is oh so delicious. My favorite flavors are raspberry and mango.Love guac! Basically anything that has avocado in it, I will love. I add guac or avocado to my burger, my chicken, wheat tortilla chips, veggies, etc. The possibilities are endless.

What are your favorite summer snacks that help you not be afraid to show off your bikini bod?! I'd love to know! Have a fabulous day!
Yours,
sCe

I am totally with you on the guac and hummus. I am completely obsessed with Trader Joe's hummus and raita right now. That with pita chips is my go to snack.

LC made guac for our lunch appetizer yesterday. I brought the leftovers for lunch today. Now after seeing your picture, I want to eat it right now!

I must try those dark chocolate almonds! Thanks for the suggestion! I love hummus too, but the garden vegetable flavor. I can go through a small container in about three days, it's so hard to stop! Hope you are staying cool and having fun in NYC! xoxo If you read this and still have time to shop, check out the Ralph Lauren store in the West Village, they have clothing for infants that is sooooo cute to look at!

Summer is a time for fresh fruits, and veggies, I add raw nuts, sunflower seeds, and sliced strawberries to salads. Home-made smoothies or veggie juices are wonderful too.
