Looking for the perfect snacks, but trying to avoid boring your tastebuds? Still want to satisfy those cravings for chocolate and other yummies? Here are six of our favourite snacks. The good news is they won’t blow your waistline out, and the better news is that they’ll feel like a little indulgence every time!
Nut Butter Boats
Celery?! Yuck, I hear you say! The fix is easy. Just add peanut butter, almond butter or cashew butter to your celery to spruce it up. As well as packing plenty of protein, nut butters contain healthy fats, antioxidants, magnesium and vitamin E to keep you fighting fit.
Homemade Trail Mix
Sure, it’s easy to buy a trail mix, but why not tailor one to suit your own tastes? Love pecans but hate peanuts? Mix up your favourite nuts with pumpkin or sunflower seeds, and your choice of dried fruits and/or coconut for the perfect quick and easy snack.
Struggling to spice up your shakes? Add a tablespoon or two of peanut butter to get more healthy fats and change the flavour up. All you have to do is blend, rather than shake, it up!
Ahh, hommus, where would we be without you? Indulge in everyone’s favourite dip by chopping up the vegetable of your choice and dipping in!
Protein bites are an easy way to get all your yummies and indulge your love of baking without forgetting your goals. Protein powder is the only necessity – the rest is up to you! There are uncooked and raw versions, which you can set in the fridge, or oven-based recipes. Just find one that suits your taste buds and cooking abilities, then go for it!
Plain Greek yoghurt? Spruce it up with your favourite berry for a super healthy snack packed with healthy fats and protein!
