Every Canadian will agree, summer was made for outdoor adventures. We make the best of summer by getting outside to appreciate the natural beauty of our country, and let’s face it, no outdoor adventure is complete without snacks! With a focus on nutritious food to keep you fuelled through any adventure, we’ve put together our list of packable snacks for this summer:
With three perfect blends of tuna, veggies, legumes, and grains, Ocean’s Salads are the perfect go-to for any outdoor adventure. They’re compact and loaded with nutritious ingredients to help you stay satisfied and energized. Just don’t forget to bring a fork!
Ocean’s SnacKits come with everything you need, right down to the napkin and cutlery! The ultimate in convenience, these little kits are perfect on the go and incredibly tasty. With four flavours to choose from, we’re confident everyone will find a favourite.
Ocean’s Tuna Pouches
With three exotic flavour blends, Ocean’s Tuna Pouches take outdoor snacking to the next level. Portable and easy to open, you can enjoy them right out of the pouch with a fork or bring some crackers for the ultimate snacking experience.
As if the beautiful summer landscapes weren’t enough, our amazing country also offers a rich variety of fresh summer fruit. Take fresh berries, peaches, or plums along on your outdoor adventures for a nutritious and refreshing snack.
Fresh Veggies & Dip
When it comes to snacks, few things can compete with the satisfying crunch of fresh veggies. Slice up red bell peppers, celery, carrots, and cauliflower and bring along your favourite veggie dip for a nutritious food that’s perfect for the outdoors.
Guacamole & Chips
We feel pretty strongly that nutritious food should also be delicious, and let’s face it guacamole meets all the criteria. For best results, make your own and pair it with lightly salted, baked chips.
There are countless recipes for homemade energy balls out there, and with good reason. Easy to prepare, packable, and sweet these little balls are the ideal on-the-go snack.
If you’re not keen on mixing your own energy balls, energy bars a great alternative. Look for ones that are made only with ingredients you can pronounce and keep an eye on sugar content!
Nuts & Trail Mix
You really can’t go wrong with these classic outdoor snacks. Nuts and trail mix will keep you fuelled from hikes to cycling trips and everything in between.
Another classic snack, string cheese is as tasty as it is healthy. If you’re counting calories this summer, look for a light variety that’s lower in fat. We promise, all the flavour will still be there.
Which of these nutritious foods will you take along on your outdoor adventures this summer?
