Seriously Delicious Snacks

Stuck on ideas for snacks to keep you energised and satisfied during 9am-5pm?

Here's my favourite healthy and seriously delicious snacks that are great for when you're on the go, at work or home ✨

Power Mix

I love this power mix as it's high in protein, antioxidant rich and abundant in healthy fats.

Pop the following ingredients into a paper bag or small container. This is one serving.

10 x raw almonds, 10 x pepitas, 1 tbspn coconut flakes & 8 pieces of 80% dark chocolate 🌟

Superfood smoothie


Superfood Smoothie

Perfect for a ☀healthy snack or treat.🍍

Smoothies are easy to prepare and packed full of superfoods like blueberry, raspberry, pineapple, flaxseed, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed and coconut water.

To make, simply add ingredients into a blender or food processor and blitz for 2 minutes. 🙌🏼

Chia Pudding

Caramel Pecan Chia Pudding

This creamy chia seed pudding is seriously easy to make.

I recommend making a few at the same time so you can enjoy them again and again over the next few days 👌🏽

You'll need 1/2 cup coconut cream, 3 tbspn chia seeds, 1 tbspn maple syrup, 1/4 cup pecans, plus 1 extra tbspn maple syrup for serving.

Combine coconut cream, chia seeds and maple syrup in a bowl. Mix unitl well incorporated and leave to sit for 5 minutes. Spoon equal portions of pudding into container or serving bowls or glasses. Add pecans to top of each pudding. Drizzle maple syrup over pecans.

Enjoy! 🎉

Dip & Crunch

Hummus is my go to dip with a handful of carrot, celery or cucumber sticks for a crunchy afternoon snack. You can also have it with a small stack of brown rice crackers.

To make the hummus, add 1 can of rinsed chickpeas, 2 cloves garlic, 3 tbspns cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbspns fresh lemon juice, 1 tspn ground cumin, 1/4 cup filtered water, 1 tspn sea salt, 1/4 tspn paprika into a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. Store in a sealed container for 1 week.

Don't have time to make your own hummus? I recommend Yummy's or Yalla 💖

Sushi roll

Sushi roll

Having 1 sushi roll for a light and super simple snack is great option when you're busy...and peckish 😁😛

A sushi roll with ingredients like seafood and avocado are my recommentaion as it will be packed with protein and omegas.

Season fruit

Fruitti tutti

A seasonal piece of fruit (peach, nectarine, plum or a handful of berries) 🍓🍓🍓

This is by far the easiest snack of the lot! No cooking or skills are required to enjoy a piece of seasonal fruit!

Just make sure you've washed it before you eat it 💓

TIP: When you do your grocery shop buy your snacks for the week. If you forget the snacks, no dramas, simply head to the supermarket in your lunchbreak. This will prevent you from turning to the vending machine, sneaking out for some chips or chocolate or reaching into the cookie jar!
