Five Healthy Snacks Perfect for Summer

Avocado Boat

Sometimes an avocado tastes great even when it’s not on toast or in a salad. You can make a delicious, filling, omega-3 rich snack by slicing some of that green gold in half, taking out the pit, and digging in with a spoon. Salt, pepper, lemon juice, and hot sauce go a long way at jazzin’ it up if you’re so inclined.

Berry Binge

Summer is the season for snacking on nature’s little candies. Strawberries, blueberries, cherries, blackberries, and raspberries. Pick up a few baskets at your local farmer’s market and store in a glass container to help them last longer in the fridge.

Cheater’s Tzatziki

Stir a little lemon juice, grated garlic, and chopped herbs into plain yogurt and use it as a dip for cucumber sticks. It’s cool, refreshing, and filling, with a ton of crunch. 

Popcorn Party

So light and so fluffy. Pre-pop some kernels and sprinkle them with a little salt and a dusting of curry powder for something satisfying that won’t weigh you down. Or try Teresa’s Really Good Popcorn Seasonings
