Through my experience as a clinical nutritionist, and also my own personal experience, I have found enjoying one-two snacks each day can really help to support energy production. Sitting down to eat a nourishing snack between main meals can help keep your blood sugar levels stable, which in turn reduces sugar cravings. It can also prevent overeating later in the day.
If you’re looking for some simple, quick and delicious options, you are going to love these satiating snacks:
Carrots with Almond Butter & Sea Salt
Slice 1-2 carrots, spread a small amount of almond butter over each carrot slice and sprinkle with sea salt. Divine!
Mix together 1 cup Greek yoghurt or ½ cup coyo with 1-2 tbsp protein powder, cinnamon, 1 tsp maple syrup or stevia and a handful of nuts/seeds. Place in the freezer for 20-40 minutes and top with fresh berries and nut butter.
Nut Butter Apple Slices
Slice a green apple and spread a dollop of almond butter on top of each apple slice. Sprinkle with cinnamon and devour!
DIY Trail Mix
Mix together ¼ cup mixed nuts and seeds of choice with 2x squares 70-85% dark chocolate, roughly chopped. This is a great one to make in bulk and keep stored in an airtight container. Simply double or triple the recipe!
Healthy Seed Crackers & Hummus
I love having a few of my Healthy Seed Crackers with some hummus. Find the recipe for my Chickpea-Free Zucchini Hummus here. My Healthy Seed Cracker recipe can be found in the JSHealth App.
