Easy Healthy Summer Snacks

Picnics, beach days, adventures in the park and vacations often = a bad eating day or two or three. While, I do believe in “sometimes foods,” “sometimes snacks” and “sometimes days,” I still think a little bit of planning is key. Rather than feeling bloated and fatigued from eating tons of processed and sugar-laden foods, eating well nourishes your body providing energy and a feeling of being toned. Recently, I spoke about eating clean and being active on vacation, and now with school out I’m focused on healthy living with staycations and adventures near home.

Easy Healthy Summer Snacks

Kyle joined me for our healthy living segment during WTNH-Newschannel 8 CT Style’s “Splash Week,” where we shared some simple snack tips and picnic ideas for eating well while at the beach. These can be used for any summer activity.

The day after school ended for us, Lisa Davis, MPH, co-host of the Naturally Savvy show and Clean Food Network spoke with me on We had a blast chatting healthy living and clean eats. You can find them online at, IHeartRadio or in the iTunes store.

What are you favorite summertime snacks? What healthy living tips to you have for beachgoers or adventure seekers?

Here are some of our favorite tools to keep it simple and easy during the summer.

    • You are too kind. He really does have fun coming with me for the interviews. I love coming up with new ideas…I even ask him to try new fruits, veggies and other healthy snacks in an effort to prep. :)

  2. Watermelon is a must during the summer!

    • I know. I love watermelon, too. Have you tried watermelon water? I have and it’s pretty good, though I would prefer to just juice the actual melon.

  3. Oh your son is too cute. :) We like to pack healthy when we go to the beach too. I like that you make Sunday morning smoothies ahead of time! I think I’m going to borrow that from you. :)
    Have a wonderful, fun, and safe holiday weekend!

    • So, did you make the Sunday morning smoothies in bulk yet? It is a lifesaver. I make a ton of green ones as well as creamy smoothies. I’m going to put a new one up on the blog next week. I think we’re calling it C3. Hint – one C is for cream, but the other two are for the main ingredients. xoxo
