The Perfect Reading Snack: Summer Edition

Ice water with raspberries and an amazing ARC-great combination.

On my days off, I try to spend as much time as I can reading (preferably outside).  An entire afternoon of reading, ruminating, and enjoying the breeze is pretty much all I can handle on a hot summer day.  So, how to fuel these lovely afternoons?  Here’s a list of some of my favorite summer reading snacks:

Cucumber spears and pepper strips with hummus

Strawberries (picked from a local farm)

Israeli Couscous Salad (this is getting into lunch territory, but I would have a small bowl of this as a snack).  The recipe can be found at Food Network.

Cherry Tomatoes



What are your favorite reading snacks for summer?  I would love to hear your suggestions in the comments!

  1. Reading and eating are two of my favorite things! If I am doing them at the same time, I like to eat things that are not too messy like grapes, trail mix, cubed cheese, a smoothy, etc; however, one of my absolute favorite summer snacks (great for pool side or a day at the beach) is fruit salad salsa with cinnamon and sugar tortillas. I made these homemade and use whatever fruit is fresh for the salsa.
