Here at JIFU, we are excited for all the adventures that summer brings. Keeping this in mind, it is important to stay energized and healthy, no matter where your exploration takes you. We have compiled some of our favorite snacks for the days to come! Let us know if you have any suggestions for the community in the comments.

Garden Salsa

There is nothing like fresh vegetables to kick off your summer the right way. Combine all your favorites: tomatoes, jalapenos, onion, cilantro, and whatever else suits your fancy to create the perfect salsa. Serve with your favorite chips as a precursor to your dinner. This salsa also doubles as a fresh and healthy snack for those beautiful summer evenings.

Fresh Fruit

Summer and fresh fruit go hand and hand. Stock up and add the pre-cut fruit to containers that can be taken out when the moment is right. Some of our tried-and-true favorites include strawberries, kiwis, and watermelon. These can be great additions to any drink and can help spice up the main dish with ease.

Smoothies

An easy follow-up to raw fruit is, of course, smoothies. This can be a great way to get your daily fruits and veggies. Including some leafy greens, like spinach and kale, will add nutrients to your smoothie in an easy-to-consume way. Plus, they can be fun to make with kids and friends on a hot summer day!

Trail-Mix

The best thing about making your own granola is that you can add whatever you want to it! If you are not happy with the regular nuts, raisins, and M&M’s, feel free to get creative! Add some marshmallows, animal cracks, or pretzels. Throw some in a plastic bag for a hike, or add some to your arsenal of pantry snacks.

Granola

An easy follow-up to raw fruit is, of course, smoothies. This can be a great way to get your daily fruits and veggies.
