. Diet, Snacks

When it comes to curating an assortment of delicious and nutritious weekday snacks, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve got your back (and your belly) with these quick and easy snack combos that will curb your hunger, but not your results!

 

Fruit + Nut Butter

When it comes to quick and easy combos, nothing is easier than pairing fruit with nut butter. No matter your preferred flavour persuasion, there’s a combo that’s sure to tantalise your tastebuds. Here are a few of our favourites:

Sliced Apple + Cashew Butter
Dates + Peanut butter
Sliced Banana + Almond Butter
Celery + Peanut Butter
Sliced Pear + Macadamia Butter

 

Raw Nuts

Mixed nuts are a great portable snack option that you can throw in your handbag or desk draw. High in both protein and good fats, they’ll help keep you satisfied and satiated until your next meal. Try mixing in some pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes and dried cranberries to make your own trail mix.

 

Chia Pudding

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, satisfy it the nourishing way with homemade chia pudding. It’s quick, easy to whip up and full of fiber to keep your digestion on point. Soak 2 tbsp of chia seeds in ½ a cup of almond milk (or milk of choice), add your sweetener of choice + sprinkle of cinnamon and soak in the fridge for 4 hours.

 

Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas are not only delicious, but also a great source of plant based protein. Roasted chickpeas can be added to salads, soups or simply eaten on their own. Drain a can of chickpeas, transfer onto baking paper, drizzle with oil, season with your favourite herbs and spices and roast until golden.

 

Greek Yoghurt

Whether you’re looking for a post workout protein hit, low sugar dessert or an on-the-go morning snack, greek yogurt is your go-to-guy. Low in sugar but high in calcium, protein and probiotics, it will keep your tummy healthy and happy!
