5 Favorite Summertime Snacks

With endless summer pool BBQs, picnics and get-togethers of all nature, the summertime has a way of luring you toward snacking favorites like hot dogs, burgers, fries, potato chips and soda. However, if you really listen to your body, it’s telling you that it’s craving the opposite. Your body heat rises in the summer, leading to excessive sweating, dehydration and a decrease in critical electrolytes. Greasy and heavy food that are high in fat content will only act as an insulator and raise your body temp even higher, causing you to dehydrate faster. An appropriate diet for the summer will keep your body thoroughly hydrated with a healthy electrolyte balance.
