Eat Right

Six snacks to start your summer off right


Snacking is a totally vital part of everyday life, especially in the summer! Check out these sizzlin' snacks to fuel your day and keep you on the right track for a healthy lifestyle.


Avocado toast (or just about anything with avo).
The infamous avocado toast is perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack or really any time of the day (just add some protein such as a hard boiled egg or lox if you’re *extra* hungry). The avo craze is real, and we’re jumping on the bandwagon—there’s even an avocado bar located in NYC now!


Smoothie bowls.
What’s better than a cold, refreshing smoothie after being out in the summer sun? A smoothie bowl! Just add your favorite crunchy toppings such as fruit and some coconut or granola (or both) to your typical nutrient-packed blended drink and you’re set. You can find a *super* yummy and easy recipe here.


Make-it-yourself trail mix. 
Trail mix is a healthy alternative for a protein-packed snack. The healthy fats in nuts will keep you full for longer, not to mention it’s totally awesome for your skin. If you’re looking to make it sweet, add cocoa nibs or dark chocolate for a treat. Check out these 4 easy combos for a perfect snack on-the-go. 


Homemade hummus.
The protein found in chickpeas makes hummus a great way to eat throughout the day. Pair it with some pita or your fave veggies like carrots and celery. We especially love adding edamame to our hummus for an extra-filling snack (find it here). 


Apple cinnamon chips.
Reminiscing on Thanksgiving and your aunt’s delicious apple pie? Well, you have a couple more months to go, but with this easy and delicious snack, you can enjoy this sweet treat


Taco dip.
Do you wish Taco Tuesday was every night of the week? Grab some multigrain tortilla chips and check out this healthy version of a party-time favorite. Your tastebuds can thank us later.
