Recipe of the week – snacking properly

This week we are looking at snacking. Everyone does it, and it doesn’t have to be bad.

Here are our top 10 best snacks for ‘on the go’ consumption.

  1. Mixed nuts or seeds. Choose the unsalted variety.
  2. Hard-boiled egg. An inexpensive snack loaded with nutrients.
  3. Protein shakes. They are easy to make up wherever you are and offer a sweet kick when you need it most.
  4. Crab sticks. These are low fat and very tasty.
  5. Hummus Dippers. Put two tablespoons of the dip in a small Tupperware container and add a bag of vegetable sticks.
  6. Grape and cheese sticks – just add cubes of cheddar and grapes to cocktail sticks. A lovely taste combination.
  7. Yoghurt pot. Put some nonfat Greek yogurt in a Tupperware box with a handful of fruit (fresh or frozen) and a drizzle of honey. Add 2 tablespoons of toasted oats for a protein-packed crunch.
  8. Protein Bar. Like shakes, these are an easy on-the-go option.
  9. Dry-roasted edamame. Really delicious and packed with protein.
  10. Peanut butter and celery stick dippers. Delicious and filling.
