Summer Beach Essentials with OneBar

Summer is here and we have big plans to spend many afternoons at the beach. I love summer and look forward to that perfect mix of sand and salt on my skin after a long day of building sand castles and playing in the surf. It’s really my favorite time of the year.

I usually try to keep a beach bag ready for an impromptu trip. Clean beach towels, sunscreen, sand toys, and snacks are our summer beach essentials. I throw the bag, a chair and a sun umbrella in the back of the car and we’re ready to watch the sun dip into the Pacific.

I prefer to hit the beach after lunch time so that I can totally avoid packing sandwiches and lugging a cooler. Beach days should be easy breeze, right? I fill up some water bottles, grab a few snacks and bring a couple of bucks for a frozen banana.

So, let’s talk snacks. I’ve been working really hard on eliminating the junk food in our home. OneBar is perfect for an afternoon at the beach. They are small, individually wrapped and pack a whopping full serving of pure fruit. There are several things I really, really like about Onebar. 1. I know what all the ingredients are. No funky chemicals! 2. Its gluten-free, wheat-free, vegan, peanut-free and soy-free. Plus, it’s low on the glycemic index which is an A+ for this Paleo eating girl. 3. It contains an African super fruit called Baobab.

What’s baobab? It’s a super fruit fairly new to the U.S. but used for centuries in Africa. Baobab has nearly six times the amount of potassium found in bananas, lots of vitamin C and is a great source of fiber and magnesium. It also is one of the few sources of dietary calcium found in plants – perfect for vegans and vegetarians.

OneBar comes in three flavors: apple, mango and cherry. They are super fragrant and remind me of the fruit roll ups they used to sell in bulk in the produce section of the grocery store. Apple is tart and tasty! Mango is fresh and leaves me craving Thai food. Cherry is my favorite, though. It tastes like perfectly ripe cherries without the mess.

  1. On the road to prevent those fast food stops when the kids are starving!!

  2. The pool! My boys eat a TON of snacks on pool days.

  3. The Spray Play. My kids love that place as much as the pool, and all that running means tired, hungry kids. These look great!

  4. Sarah W. says:

    to the pool with the kiddos!

  5. We go to the beach all the time in the summer – these would be perfect!

  6. I would keep them in the car. Too many times I am running around with the kids and they’re starving – and I have nothing. I think they’d love One Bars!

  7. I would keep one in my purse and car for those weak moments when I am out and about.

  8. These would be perfect for our upcoming cross-country flight!

  9. This sounds great for when I’m teaching dance and need a pick me up, or when my kids need a snack (and when don’t they?).

    I would take it in my bag, everywhere. Why would I just take the one bar to a special place when you can take it everywhere.

  11. I love this idea! Always looking for healthy on-the-go snacks! Erin

  12. We love OneBar! I brought home a sample from the Women Get Social San Diego goody bag and the kids took them from me. Now they are on my monthly Amazon subscription delivery order!

  13. My kids are hungry the SECOND I pick them up from school. I would keep a box of these in the car to give to them the minute they get in the car.

  14. Going to the pool today, wish I already had these in the pool bag.

  15. Dorian C. says:

    I would LOVE these poolside, at the beach or fishing at the lake!!!

  16. It would come to the park and pool with us 🙂

  17. Love these summer essentials ! Thank you for linking up to the Caffeinated Crafters Link Party.
