No matter where you’re lounging this summer—by the pool, on the dock, or with the waves at your feet—these low calorie, beach-ready snacks can be packed and ported to the reclining chair of your choice.
The following ten summer snacks are not only a nutritious combination of lean proteins, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates; they’re also low in calories (all under 200-calories each) to go easy on your beach bod!
1. Raw Nuts
You’re already likely aware that raw nuts (the unsalted kind if you please) provide the body with a whack of heart healthy fats and proteins, which convert nicely into all that energy you’ll need for lapping around in the surf. Plus, a small handful (i.e., 22 almonds or 40 pistachios) equal only 170 calories.
