Healthy Snacks

Smoothies                A great portable snack for any time of day. Blend together some mixed berries, and a scoop of natural protein powder. You can also add a tsp of flax or hempseed oil or a small spoon of tahini or pumpkin seed butter

Nut butters                Enjoy any of the nut butters (except peanut butter!) spread thickly on 1-2 oatcakes for a quick and sustaining snack. Nuts are rich in essential fatty acids.

Avocado                     Eat a small avocado with a spoon for a creamy, satisfying snack.

Hummus                   Snack size pots are readily available from supermarkets – Eat with carrot or celery sticks.

Nuts and Seeds      Snack on 20-30g of raw unsalted nuts and seeds. This is equivalent to:

2 tbsp of seeds

8 Brazil nuts

20 cashew nuts or hazelnuts

15 walnuts or pecans

Hardboiled eggs     Portable complete protein snacks! Make sure they're organic, free range.

Low GI Fruit              Don't forget just plain old fruit – there's now so much choice available would be hard to get bored. Try a punnet of berries, an apple or cut a pear into bite size slices.

Vegetables               Why not snack on a handful of cherry tomatoes, some radishes or some carrot and celery sticks.

Juices                        Freshly made vegetable juices are quite filling and certainly satisfy hunger pangs. A good choice as a pick-you-up in the afternoon or post .

Yogurt                        Try snacking on a small pot of plain natural organic yogurt, coconut yogurt or goat's yogurt.
