6 Healthy Snacks That Are Simple And Delicious!

How do you feel about snacks? If you’re living a healthy lifestyle, exercising and making careful food choices, you might think that you’re “not allowed” to snack. Well, we’re here to tell you that’s nonsense! 

Snacks make up a sensible part of a day of healthy choices, and will help to sustain you through the day if you’re low on energy. They’re especially helpful if you’re exercising, when we need the extra calories to fuel our workouts to make them worthwhile. 

So here’s six healthy snack ideas for you to try – we think you’ll love them. 

Savoury snacks that won’t cost the calories

  1. If you’re looking to go easy on the carbs but you need something to get you through to dinnertime, then why not try these delicious Asian Themed Stuffed Lettuce Boats? You can use lean turkey or beef mince or if you don’t eat meat, try a soya or vegetable based mince instead. Packed with flavour from the soy and chilli garlic sauces, lime and fresh mint, they’re totally irresistible. And because they’re wrapped in lettuce, they come in at 178 calories each, which is the perfect protein fuelled snack. 
  2. Talking of protein, these Spinach & Ham Egg Muffins are packed with energy boosting protein and make the perfect pre or post workout snack. Not all muffins are sugar and fat laden. These muffin-y delights are only 70 calories each and have it all – flavour, veggies, protein and heat (if you want it). Keep a batch to hand for when the munchies come on. 
  3. If you’re looking for something cheesy, then look no further than these Cheesy Taco Bites. They’re also made using lean turkey or beef mince but can be turned vegetarian by using a veggie mince. They can also be turned vegan if you have a favourite non-dairy cheese alternative. Low in calories but high in flavour, they can also make a substantial lunch if you add in some salad or steamed vegetables. 

Satisfying that sweet craving in a healthy way

  1. These Blueberry Snack Bites not only taste delicious, they look the part, too. Their deep purple colour is down to the polyphenols in the blueberries. Polyphenols have an antioxidant effect that can help to support the work of a healthy immune system, which is a snack bonus. They’re also packed with protein from the flax and chia seeds and beta glucan from the oats that supports good cardiovascular health. 
  2. Love a chocolate brownie, but don’t want to get the baking equipment out, or consume all the calories? Well, these No Bake Chocolate Peanut Brownies tick all the boxes! Using only five ingredients including the protein powder of your choice and delicious chocolate chips, and with only 130 calories per brownie, they’re the perfect solution to a brownie urge. 
  3. Whoever said that ice cream can’t be a healthy option? Not us! Our Chocolate Banana Ice Cream is made using just bananas and cocoa powder (vegan if you choose) and is a delicious way of indulging in ice cream without the extra calories.  Top with honey or fruit and add half an overripe avocado when blending the ingredients for extra creaminess (and zero avocado waste). 
    Enjoy!
