Summer is not over yet! Don’t get discouraged by the autumn-like weather we have been having and instead, savor this moment by making those trips to the beach. Spend the entire day there, perhaps while flying a kite, playing volleyball, soaking up the sun, and partaking in various water-sports. In between paddle boarding, surfing, and swimming, I have curated my seven favorite beach snacks to nosh on over Labor Day weekend.
H2rOse: Their peach rose water is one of my new, favorite beverages. I can drink this everyday and each sip could not have a better pairing than the beach close to my home. Just the right amount of sweetness and a pinch of saffron make this a unique refreshing beverage.
Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips: These are some really tasty chips! Vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO, their selection of bean and rice chips are ideal for the whole family to snack on. My favorite is the Pico de Gallo that creates a mouthwatering salsa flavor on your tongue. So good, no dip is required.
EPIC Foods: Their protein bars and jerky is the best around. Crafted with highest quality animal meats mixed with savory and sweet spices, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. The company sources their meat from 100% grass fed beef and bison. There is also a selection of chicken, venison, turkey, pork, and salmon varieties. My favorites are the Turkey Almond Cranberry Bar (Thanksgiving in a bar!) and the Uncured Bacon Bites.
Pasta Snacks: Their newly launched Pasta Bow Ties come in four irresistible flavors: Creamy Ranch, Honey Butter, Meatball Parm, and Smooth Cheddar. I recommend bringing extra bags as these are nearly impossible to share. Made with real semolina flour and 100% non-GMO ingredients, this is one smart snack choice. My favorite is Honey Butter, the flavor is so authentic!
Chameleon Cold Brew: A great pick-me-up for the morning on your way to the shore. A smooth, bold taste with every sip. I have been a fan of Chameleon cold brew for almost two years. Organic flavors include: Vanilla, Black Mocha, Mexican, and Espresso. I drink it black at the beach, at home I sometimes add a touch of low fat milk. My favorite is the Mexican, a lightly sweetened bend of vanilla, cinnamon, and almond.
Health Warrior: A snack that fits perfectly inside your beach tote, their new line of Pumpkin seed bars are packed with fuel to fill your energizing, fun-filled day. My favorite is the Cinnamon Spiced Pumpkin Seed Bars. Each is gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy free.
Harmless Harvest Coconut Water: The only coconut water I drink. I am very fond of their organic coconut water line, in addition to their new Coconut Probiotics. Coconut water is a perfect pairing for a day at the beach. Just remember to keep your bottles chilled!
