During the summer months, it can often feel like you have to choose between delicious meals and a toned bikini body. However, with some strategic snacking, you’ll likely believe what you’re eating is nothing more than a tasty treat. Below, Power Crunch CEO and nutrition expert, Kevin Lawrence, has listed some great-tasting snack ideas to sneak essential nutrients into your diet this summer!

  • Vitamin C. Although oranges are known as the quintessential source of Vitamin C, there are many unexpected fruits and veggies that contain the important nutrient. One small head of cauliflower contains 127.7 mg of Vitamin C. The unlikely vegetable makes for a great mashed potato-inspired side dish to accompany your dinner!
  • Antioxidants. Antioxidants are valued for their remarkable ability to fight heart disease, cancer and aging. For a delightful snack between meals, grab a handful of dark chocolate covered blueberries. Eating blueberries each day will have extraordinary effects on your skin, eyesight and brain health.

  • Protein. If your body lacks protein, your metabolism may slow down and put you at risk of weight gain, fatigue and muscle loss. Mix up your daily protein regimen with a frozen Power Crunch protein pop! Mix Power Crunch Proto Whey with almond milk and fill several ice pop molds; stick them in the freezer for a few hours and voila—a cool and refreshing chocolaty treat! You can customize your Power Crunch pops by adding fruit; raspberries make a mouthwatering addition!
  • Fiber. Most people know that fiber is essential, but many traditional fiber options aren’t very enticing. Garnish almost any savory meal guilt-free with creamy avocado slices; or enjoy the fruit on its own as a snack. One cup of avocado contains 10 grams of fiber!
