Veggies are also a quick and easy food to prepare, store and snack on by the pool. They give a satisfying crunch and add fiber and vitamins we can lose very quickly on summer afternoons. Many veggies, such as carrots, celery, broccoli and peppers, come pre-cut, so there's no need to even break out a knife.
Think dips are limited to salad dressings or tubs of mayonnaise-y goop? Think again. Dips such as hummus, guacamole and yogurt-based dips are healthy additions to your summer menu.
