I’ve always been a snacker. I love a good crunch and am also partial to the taste of something sweet and savory. So, while working from home, I must have some tasty food to snack on.
Although I still love a good chip and candy moment, I’ve moved away from making those my go-to snack choices. As I refresh my healthy habits, I’ve become more conscious of what snacks I eat. If you’re looking for a few quick and easy summer snack ideas, below are three of my favorites:
I eat some version of a fruit salad at least once a day. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve seen me share one on Instastories. While I mostly eat my fruit salad without toppings, I sometimes add honey or Cool Whip. Both toppings boost the not-so-sweet fruit and give the already-sweet fruit an extra kick.
Mini Charcuterie Board
I probably eat a mini charcuterie board at least three times a week. To keep it interesting, I try changing the variations here and there. However, the two ingredients always on my board are cheese slices and olives. Everything else is negotiable. Even when I’m the only one eating it, I ensure my charcuterie board is neat and pretty. The way you present food, even to yourself, is important.
I’ve only recently started making this salad on my own. I used to purchase Mediterranean Salads from the grocery store pretty often, so saving a little money has been nice. Prepping this snack ahead of time helps make it super easy. Below are the ingredients I use:
- Feta Cheese (sometimes)
- Olive Oil
- Himalayan Salt

I agree that a savory, sweet combo makes the best snacks. Your stories are inspiring me to eat more fruit!
Best combo EVER!
