Prep Healthy Snacks in Seconds

I’ve always been a snacker…..going for hours without food and then eating a huge meal just doesn’t work for me as I feel ravenous and then eat too quickly and suffer indigestion.

I much prefer to eat
small meals and enjoy
a snack in between.

In a bid to control my blood sugar better and feel fuller for longer I am going to opt for snacks with protein and fibre.

Apart from the obvious, (we don’t need to talk about that!) eating more fibre has many health benefits. According to Women’s Health magazine ‘Fibre is quite possibly one of the most underrated and important foods that will help you reach your health and fat loss goals. It’s not only important for helping to reduce the risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and colon cancer, but it also helps your body to burn fat by controlling your blood sugar levels, reducing the release of the hunger hormone ghrelin, and helping curb sugar cravings.’

So, I’ve done my research and come up with a few ideas for quick-to-prepare snacks, which have fibre and also a little protein.

  • Celery and cucumber spread with low-fat soft cheese
  • Apple slices spread with nut butter
  • Pear or persimmon slices and wafer-thin ham
  • Raspberries or blueberries with fat-free Greek yogurt

And as an occasional treat:

  • Ripe avocado spread on Vogel’s Soya & Linseed bread (toasted)

 

Em’s Sweet Treat Tub

  • Sweet & salty popcorn 80g bag
  • Almonds 75g (3oz)
  • Dried cranberries 50g (2oz)

One portion is 25g (1oz).

Mix together and keep in an airtight tub. Take a small pot (about xxg) of this with you to work (or wherever you’re snacking).


 

Happy snacking folks!
