Necessities to must pack during summer trip

Beaches are one the best places to visit during summers to beat the heat. People all around the world plan trips to beaches to enjoy the summer sunshine and cool breezes. Summer is a best season for beach lovers. During this summer if you’re planning a trip to beach and concerned about what snacks and drinks to pack, then this article can help you. 

Don’t worry about calories and fats, this article can guide you about healthy beach friendly snacks which can add more fun to your this summer beach vacation.

Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
What else better than fresh fruits and veggies? They can make healthy snacks along with nutritional value. They are rich in fiber and have higher content of water that won’t let your body dehydrate while getting tanned in the sun on a beach.
Tip: You should wash and cut all the fruits and veggies and pack them in air tight box to carry along with you. Veggies such as cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, celery, sweet peas, spinach, cucumber, etc. Also pack juicy fruits like watermelon, honeydew, grapes, cantaloupe, oranges, apples, etc.
Beach bag pack

Hummus, rich in protein and fiber, makes perfect combo along with fresh veggies and fruits. Try to pack homemade hummus made of chickpeas, yellow lentil hummus or edamame. 

Whole grain crackers
Do pack munchies like whole grain crackers and cheese to avoid cravings for fried chips. Their high fiber content will make your tummy full making it easier to halt after just one serving. Crackers paired with cheese sticks or wedges will make healthy snacks. Do pack individually wrapped cheese which easy to store and eat.

Dried chickpeas or Beans
You can prepare dry chickpeas or beans to take with you on beach. Soak desired quantity of chickpeas overnight. Drain them and using some olive oil roast them at 450 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes, or until crispy. For seasoning use black pepper, salt as per taste, rosemary, sage, chili powder or lime juice with some cilantro.

Nuts like almonds, cashews, pistachios, peanuts, pecans are rich in protein, fiber and healthy fats. You can find portable trial mixtures in the stores which are easy to carry along with you on trip. Do remember to take right quantity of nuts as one can easily overeat.

Peanut butter and jelly Sandwich
Do pack peanut butter and berry sandwich as they don’t get soggy in the heat. Layer the peanut butter along with your choice of flavored jelly or jam. Whole wheat pita can be used instead of bread to minimize the chance of sogginess.

Water is one of the must-haves on the beach. Your body gets easily dehydrated in the sun during summers. So to keep getting hydrated while enjoying a beach holiday, do pack lots of water with you. You can also pack coconut water, Gatorade, lemonade, ice tea or other flavored drinks. Do pack them in a portable cooler to enjoy chilled drinks in the sun.
