Summer Berries:

Delicious Summer berries are an awesome addition to a festival packing list. Not only are they packed with water, fiber, and B vitamins to keep you feeling fresh and energized, but they'll also hold up well in your cooler. No need to chop or slice; just pop a handful in your mouth for a big boost.

Coconut Water:

For a step beyond still water, reach for the coconut. Overflowing with extra electrolyte power, namely potassium, coconut water saves lives when you've been out late or you're just busy running around in the sun.

Citrus:

High levels of vitamin C will help keep you healthy amongst the large festival crowds. Grapefruit and orange slices make a refreshing and delicious snack, but if you're looking to bring on the electrolyte power, bring on the lemons. Squeezing some into your water will give that extra boost to keep you going.

Hummus & Pita:

Go for a container or two of hummus. Full of protein and fiber, the chickpea spread will be sure to satisfy you in a healthy way.

Almonds:

A solid source of manganese and copper, almonds will help you if you're starting to feel weak or fatigued. They'll also help to stabilize your blood sugar levels.

Green-Packed Bar:

Getting your greens in at a big music festival can be a bit of a struggle. Salad won't hold up well in your cooler, and you may end up paying big money for greens from vendors.

Bananas:

Potassium- and magnesium-laden bananas are an ideal way to get your electrolytes up. Try to keep them in a big tupperware so that their texture doesn't change in the cooler.

Cucumbers:

Composed of 95 percent water, the cucumber is a highly hydrating and delicious food. Pack them whole, and slice them up right before you enjoy. Cucumber slices are a perfect dipping tool to scoop up some hummus.
