It’s summer, we want quick snacks that will keep well in our bag while we are laying at the pool. Today I shared some options on Good Day Sacramento that are dietitian-approved and none of them require a fridge!
Better for you Potato Chip Alternative
Crunchy roasted chickpeas are a better-for-you potato chip alternative. Just as crunchy and savory but a good source of plant protein and filling fiber.
3-Ingredient Energizing Snack Bites
I make these all the time especially if I need something on-the-go. Add nuts and dates to a food processor, form into your bites and roll them in your favorite toppings like coconut flakes or goji berries – but feel free to get creative. Dates are my favorite healthy sweetening hack. Unlike refined sugar, which is pure carbohydrate, Dates add sweetness but also contain more potassium than a banana and are a good source of fiber, which supports digestion.
A snack that you might find in a dietitian’s pool bag
Canned tuna is one of the only high-quality, on-the-go protein sources that has those good omega-3 fats. You can pair this with an avocado for a creamy base and you have a high protein, fridge-free snack that’s super nutritious.
Satisfy your sweet tooth
I shared a healthier way to satisfy a sweet tooth – nut butter stuffed dates! Dates are naturally sweet and nut butter adds decadence but is a good source of plant protein and healthy fats.
