Beach Foods That Won’t Leave You Feeling Bloated

Whether you prefer to pack your own lunch or eat at a beachside cafe, there are certain foods that you should be avoiding, to prevent you from feeling cramped and bloated. OROGOLD takes a look at some of the different foods that will leave you feeling invigorated and full of energy – perfect for a day at the beach!

Tortilla wraps served in a plate

Wraps
Not only do conventional sandwiches tend to get soggy, but they also easily fall apart at the beach, which is why tortilla wraps are one great alternative. They are also extremely easy to make at home, and should include plenty of dark leafy greens, as these are a fantastic way to add some volume without the heavy calories. Another alternative would be to make lettuce wraps, which, although more inconvenient, are much easier to eat with one hand than a salad. Once you have created your lettuce wraps, OROGOLD recommends wrapping them in foil, which you can then easily peel back and eat at the beach.

Healthy Dips
Fruit and vegetable slices with a healthy dip is a great snack to pack along to bring to the beach with you, and is extremely cooler-friendly. Apples with peanut butter is a perfect balance of fruit and protein, while hummus with fresh vegetables will fill you up without weighing you down. If you are bringing along a dip that contains dairy, OROGOLD reminds you to also pack a thermometer, so that you can ensure that the dairy doesn’t fall below a certain temperature.

High-Potassium Fruits
If you aren’t bringing any food to the beach with you, fruit is an easy one to find at most beach vendors. Fruits that are rich in potassium, such as bananas, melons and papayas, will help to offset any excess sodium in your body, which is one of the main causes of bloating. Fruits will also help to keep you hydrated during the day, and will give your body a boost of antioxidants, which will help you to look and feel even healthier.

Greek Yogurt

Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is a much healthier alternative to the frozen yogurt you buy in stores, as that is usually packed with sugar. In addition to being full of protein, Greek yogurt also helps with digestion, which will ensure that you don’t feel cramped or bloated. Greek yogurt is easy to find at beachside convenience stores, but, for an extra treat, OROGOLD recommends freezing some at home the night before, and taking along some chopped frozen fruit to mix with it at the beach.

As satisfying as it may feel to indulge in a massive spread at the beachside pizzeria, or chow down on some burgers from the beach bar, the satisfying feeling won’t last for long, and you will soon end up feeling heavy and bloated, and unable to fully enjoy the rest of your day. OROGOLD recommends always bringing along some healthy beach snacks, just in case you can’t find any good alternatives while you are there.
