Eating in a bikini doesn’t have to give you nightmares any more. Here, summer snacks that will leave you satisfied without packing on pounds.

  1. Carrots: Carrot sticks are the best snacks to munch on during the summer because the orange pigment beta-carotene gives skin an extra glow while protecting cells from free radical damage. Carrots protect your skin from sun damage (though you still need to wear SPF) while giving you a boost of energy.
  2. Iced Green: Skip the bloating with your diet soda and sip on chilled green tea to boost your metabolism throughout the day.
  3. Baked Protein Chips Protein chips are an easy option to throw in your beach bag and will keep you fuller longer. They are low in fat, so they won’t leave you with that ‘gross feeling’ after you eat them.
  4. Frozen Grapes: Not only will this icy treat boost your skin with antioxidants, they are also perfect for staying cool in the summer heat. Plus, each frozen grape is only three calories, so you can munch away without guilt.
  5. Water: Though seltzer is a healthy alternative to soda and other sugary drinks, water is the best option to hydrate you inside and out on a hot day.
  6. Protein Shake: Protein shakes are easy to bring to the beach, all you need to do is stick a packet in your bag along with some water to mix. They’re creamy and filling, without causing you to crash midday from extra sugar.
  7. 100% Fruit Juice: Cold fruit juices containing low-glycemic sugars are full of antioxidants. Just remember to make sure it’s 100 percent natural juice, other fruit drinks are packed with unwanted sugar and calories.
