Easy, No Brainer Swaps

With just a little bit of planning and preparation, you can enjoy snacks that are tasty, healthy and nutritious instead of processed, packaged rubbish!

Here are some of my favourites:

Choc dipped strawberries/frozen banana

Dip strawberries in melted dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa) and freeze.

Take half a frozen banana, coat in melted dark chocolate and re-freeze.  You could also roll it in chopped nuts after the chocolate.

Choc Nut Popcorn

Pop some natural popcorn and top with 1 tablespoon of your favourite nut butter, melted.  Add a dusting of cocoa powder and enjoy.

Fresh fruit/veggie sticks

It’s a great idea to keep your favourite fresh fruit and containers of veggie sticks such as carrot, celery and peppers on hand for snacking.  Knowing that they are already prepared is a simple way to avoid other temptations. Dip them in hummus or my quick & healthy 5-minute tzatziki dip for some extra protein & healthy fats.

Kale chips

Kale and other root vegetable chips are a great party food alternative.  If you don’t already have a recipe, have a look at mine here

Banana or apple slices with peanut butter

No explanation needed!

Hard boiled egg

Hard boiled eggs are not just handy as a snack in their own right, but can also be added to other ingredients such as tomato, avocado, hummus, chicken breast or tinned salmon for a quick and nutritious lunch.

 

Greek yoghurt and fruit

Mix some chopped fresh fruit or frozen berries to a tub of Greek yoghurt.  You could also add some toasted muesli/granola, nuts, seeds or protein powder on top for an extra boost. Put it in a pretty bowl to make it feel special!

Dark chocolate

Choose at least 70% cocoa and enjoy a couple of squares of dark chocolate with a cup of tea to take away the mid-afternoon slump.  Make the tea Rooibos or green for an even bigger anti oxidant boost.

Five minute banana oat cookies

These are great with your mid-morning or afternoon cuppa.  Made with only a few ingredients and really quick to whip up, they make a healthy after school snack for the kids too. Get the recipe here
