It’s Good Food Friday on ABC Charleston! Whether you are heading to the beach or pool, try these healthy summer snacks for every occasion.
A low calorie summer staple
Salsa is a nutritious, low calorie summer staple. I love Fresh Cravings Salsa because its so fresh that you can only find it chilled in the produce section. It’s made with fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes, crisp handpicked veggies, zesty peppers and spices that give it that homemade taste. The recipe is never cooked or pasteurized you can find the organic at Publix and traditional at Walmart.
A healthy summer dessert swap
This is the ultimate summer snack and dessert swap that’s all treat without cheat. They’re the CLIO Greek yogurt bars, the perfect on the go indulgence. They’re made with creamy, whole milk Greek yogurt wrapped in a delicious chocolate shell so you get the nutritional benefits of yogurt – 9 grams of protein and billions of probiotics with the convenience of a bar. It comes in six flavors including strawberry, peanut butter, and the new vanilla mini bars – a bite-sized version of their best-selling original bar – now available at Harris Teeter.
A high protein snack for travel
WOLO Protein Wanderbar was developed for people on the go whether you’re heading to the beach or traveling across the country. Each bar has 15 grams of protein, 11 grams of fiber, less than 6 grams of sugar and is gluten and soy free. They also contain a unique antioxidant blend to help keep you healthy on the go – including half your daily dose of vitamin C, turmeric which has anti-inflammatory properties & flax seeds which have those good omega 3 fats.
Boost energy and immunity for a healthy summer
Most Americans still fall short on fruit and vegetable consumption and actually getting most of their antioxidants from coffee so this is a great product called BaristaBoost. And it’s an easy way to incorporate nutrition into your daily cup of joe. It’s a blend of collagen protein, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals designed to help enhance energy, focus and immunity. Made with just 6 ingredients, no additives or preservatives.
