It has been quite the rainy June for us at the beach. We’ve had four weeks of rain that ended with a tropical storm. Now that summer has officially begun, it seems, as if on cue, that the rain has moved past and the sun has arrived. Hallelujah!
My kids are ready to soak up some sunshine, and my friends at Whole Foods in Destin stocked me up with some awesome goodies that will be perfect for the beach, pool, or a summer picnic.
So first up is sunscreen. I am a freak about sunscreen on my kids and often reapply it two or three times while we are out.
This Goddess Garden sunscreen is great for spraying all over the body and I use the Kiss my Face on their cute little faces. Julia is very fair-skinned so I’m extra careful with her. The stick is a great option for faces and babies (I keep it in my diaper bag).
I have become a huge fan of coconut water! I keep it in the fridge at all times for smoothies. It’s slightly sweet and full of electrolytes, so it’s a great way to stay hydrated on a hot summer day. The 365 Everyday Value brand now comes in organic!
Be careful with these BBQ Black Bean Bearitos, friends. They taste a lot like chili cheese Fritos, but with quality ingredients. So darn good.
I don’t usually keep juice in the house, but I stumbled upon these Oh-So Organic pouches at Whole Foods and was pleased to see that they are very low in sugar (only 8g!). I picked up a pack as a fun treat for the kiddos at the beach.
Essentia water is pretty much the bomb. It’s supercharged ionized alkaline water that apparently rehydrates better than normal water. All the celebs drink it! And I’ve heard it’s great after a few too many adult beverages, but I cannot speak to the accuracy of that claim. 😉
These Unreal crispy dark chocolate peanut butter cups are one last fun treat for your beach bag. Oh my goodness. It’s like a Reese’s cup made with organic, vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free ingredients. My kids go wild for them!
Don’t forget your Cotton Candy grapes! They are currently available at Whole Foods are juicy, sweet, and delicious. We love ours frozen.
