Between Memorial Day and the week after the Fourth of July, I spent four weekends on a beach somewhere.
I’ve spent so much time at the beach this summer that when I was in the city last weekend, a friend said she was shocked to see me.
As a New Yorker who generally thrives on the go-go-go, being on the beach gives me a chance to slow down, chill out, and live on beach time. I recharge, re-center and just sit back and listen to the waves or nap. (Because beach naps are really the best naps.)
Whether a beach day means that I’ve taken the train to Long Beach or Rockaway, taken a flight somewhere exciting, or endured hours of traffic to get out to the Hamptons, I try to make the best of my day by making it as long as possible.
Which means I get HUNGRY (but hopefully never hangry.)
So like the giant child that I am, I carry snacks with me. Although the hot, salty air makes me crave salty snacks, I love that these Blue Diamond lightly salted almonds are still low in sodium — because who wants to be bloated at the beach? Even though this post is sponsored, I legit always do bring almonds wherever I go as a snack.
What’s your favorite beach snack?
