Healthy snacks between meals can help to balance energy and blood sugar levels as well as keep meal portions in check. Try these satisfying snacks, super fast to make and super tasty!
Avocado and ricotta on toast
1 slice sour dough toasted
1/2 a ripe avocado sliced
1 tablespoon ricotta
- Spread ricotta over toasted bread, top with sliced avocado, a splash of lemon juice and a sprinke of cracked pepper.
Tip: No time to toast? Just as delicious on crackers like Vita Wheats or Ryvita. You can also get fresh avocado in a tube from Woolworths, no brown bits and no mess!
Boiled egg and hommus
1 hard boiled egg
1 tablespoon hommus
- Cut egg in half length wise and spread with hommus.
Tip: Boiled eggs have their own natural 'wrapping' but if you don't have time to peel, remove the shell and store in cling wrap for a faster snack.
Apple and nut butter
1 tablespoon of your favourite nut butter
- Cut apple in half, remove core. Spread each half with nut butter.
Tip: You could also use Tahini, a spread made from seaseme seeds, for variety.
Yoghurt with fruit and LSA
1 cup low fat greek yoghurt
1 tablespoon LSA
1/2 cup berries or tinned peachs (natural juice, drained)
- Combine all ingredients and serve chilled.
Tip: If you like a crunchy snack use raw nuts instead of LSA.
