It’s National Picnic Month! Today I shared how to pack to the perfect healthy picnic on CBS WUSA-TV Great Day Washington, D.C.
Upgrade your potato chips with cheddar cheese crisps
Whisps Snacks are made with 100% cheddar cheese and savory spices so they’re an excellent source of calcium with 10 grams of protein per serving and only 3 grams of net carbs.
Pack Light-Bite Finger Food Appetizers
Cucumber and sweet potato bites are a great light bite to pack for your picnic seasoned with Dash “everything but the salt” seasoning blend which has the flavor of an everything bagel, but without the salt. I recommend the Dash blends to my clients they are made with a blend of flavorful spices and are salt free so they are an easy way to enhance dishes without sodium.
Mason Jar Meals
The Four Layer Greek American Lamb Dips from AmericanLamb.com are perfect mason jar meal to pack for your picnic. Lamb is a flavor-forward, nutrient-rich source of high quality protein that’s easy to prepare and super versatile. One 3-ounce serving fuels half of your daily protein needs and provides essential vitamins and minerals.
Pack better-for-you desserts
Finally, I shared fruit kabobs made with light and crispy Atkins White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Bars, which are made with almond butter and packed with satisfying protein and fiber with only 4 grams of net carbs. You can find them at Atkins.com, walmart.com or amazon. Atkins also found in a recent survey that nearly 50% of people will cut out mindless eating when quarantine ends and all these options are better for you and delicious.
