Summertime is here and snacking is at its finest! We have a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables at our fingertips this time of year. This is the season that fruits and vegetables are loading up the shelves at markets delivering; tasty, healthy, and affordable snacks.

To switch up your typical snacking routine, I challenge you to try new fruit varieties that you haven’t tried yet or try freezing some of your favorite fruits. Varying your snacks, will keep you on-track and excited about continuing your healthy choices. Here are some of my favorite sizzling summer snacks;

    • Fresh fruit is perfect this season! Watermelon, peaches, cherries, grapefruit, strawberries, or kiwis served with pumpkin seeds or pistachios.
    • Frozen treats! Fruit pureed popsicles, frozen grapes, freeze non-fat greek yogurt.
    • Grill it! Grilled pineapple drizzled with honey, grilled vegetable kebobs, or grilled asparagus and tomato salad.

Remember to have some fun this summer and enjoy the huge variety of produce at your local farmer’s market or grocery store.
