Beach Snacks

Say it isn't so! Summer is almost over so I'm FINALLY going on my beach vacation! Granted it's only for the weekend, but it's a vacation nonetheless. A few of my relatives from Ireland are making the trip across the pond to join me, so it's going to be a pretty full house. Do you know what that means? I need to do some serious food shopping!

Because I know how hard it is to snack on the beach, I've been researching quick and healthy snacks to bring (especially for a big group of people). I came across this awesome article in Food Network's Healthy Eat section. They recommend the following snacks:

Dried Fruits and Nuts
Fresh fruit
Banana + peanut butter
Raw veggies
Edamame
Beverages
Cooler Must-Haves (low-fat string cheese, Greek yogurt)

Yum! My personal favorite? The banana and peanut butter. It reminds me of a candy bar, but without all the guilt :) I think I'll add watermelon to my list too!

I'm looking forward to lots of sun + sand + water, and all of these delicious (and healthy) snacks! I'll let you know how it goes.

Bye for now!
Emma
