Sunscreen, a hat, and towel always make it in my beach bag, and when it comes to snacks, I always need to pack something salty and crunchy. Chips and crackers are so ridiculously good, and it doesn't help that they can conveniently be enjoyed from a bag or box while you munch away and soak up some rays. Problem is, it's tempting to eat more than your fair share. We already calorie-compared all of our favorite chips, so I've taken the lowest calorie chips and paired them with the lowest calorie crackers, so you can stock up the next time you visit the grocery store (and not worry about calorie counting while enjoying your day at the beach!).
