Best Bikini Friendly Foods

With Bikini and swimsuit season well under way, we are all keeping a closer eye on what we are eating? Rather than focus on which foods you need to cut back on, turn your attention to the delicious and best bikini friendly foods that will fill you up for less calories and help keep your body in beach-ready shape. That will keep you slim all season long.

Best Bikini Friendly Foods – Tzaziki

A tangy, cool dip made from protein-packed, calcium-rich Greek yogurt as well as cucumbers, dill, garlic, and lemon, tzaziki is a much healthier alternative to all those sour cream- and mayo-based dips that may tempt you at summer barbecues. Serve it as a refreshing sauce for grilled meats and veggies, or pair with crudités, whole grain crackers, or toasted whole wheat pita bread for a bikini friendly filling food and snack.

Best Bikini Friendly Foods – Peaches

Along with watermelon and blueberries, peaches are a quintessentially “summer” fruit. This sweet and juicy stone fruit makes for an easy and healthy take-along snack, and its high water content will help slim your midsection while helping to keep you hydrated. Peaches contain the antioxidant vitamin C, which is important for maintaining healthy skin. They’re also rich in fibre, which helps beat belly bloat. Why not try grilling your peaches, it’s only about 50 calories per peach and definitely number 2 on the list of 8 best bikini friendly foods.

Brewed Iced Tea

Although not a food it can be classed as the most bikini-friendly beverage out there (other than lots of water, of course) is freshly brewed tea. Not only will tea hydrate you and help suppress your appetite, certain kinds (like green tea) can even boost your metabolism and aid in weight loss. Try green tea instead of coffee in the morning and pour a soothing cup of chamomile or peppermint tea in the evening to distract you from snacking. Or why not try keeping a jug of tea in the fridge with a splash of fresh fruit juice and cut-up fruit.

Best Bikini Friendly Foods – Corn on the Cob

Though there are certainly less starchy veggies out there, this summertime favourite makes the bikini-friendly list because it’s high in fibre and one of the lowest calories items you’ll find on a typical outdoor barbecue menu – far healthier than, say, potato or pasta salad. If you like melted butter with your sweet corn, use a small brush to add just a touch.

Best Bikini Friendly Foods – Almonds

One of nature’s perfect snacks, almonds are a terrific source of not only heart healthy fats but vitamin E, protein, calcium, and magnesium as well.  However be warned just because almonds are healthy doesn’t mean you can eat them in unlimited portions, keep a small bag of almonds and dried fruit in your car for an easy on-the-go snack to ward off hunger. Or, spread almond or peanut butter on an apple for a filling bikini friendly food or snack.

Best Bikini Friendly Foods Berries and Avocado

All the colourful berries of summer — think strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries — are low in calories and high in water and fibre, so they’re a bloat-reducing way to satisfy your sweet tooth in bikini season (and all year-round!). To enhance your summer skin, berries are also packed with antioxidants that fight free radicals and may even help protect against skin cancer.  Another of our best bikini friendly foods is Avocado, which is rich in healthy monounsaturated fat — which keeps you satisfied and boosts heart health — in addition to lots of belly-slimming fibre. Add it to salads, burgers and even oatcakes as a healthy snack.

Finally the last on the list of 8 Best Bikini Friendly Foods is the Cantaloupe, Cantaloupe is a good source of vitamins A and C — both are important for healthy skin. It’s also low in calories and high in water content to provide refreshing hydration in summer months, while keeping you svelte!  Cut the fruit into chunks and keep in the fridge for easy snacking; the fruit also pairs beautifully with cottage cheese for  a light breakfast or lunch.

So Happy summer eating!
