10 Healthy Snack Ideas from a Nutritionist

Healthy snacks which combine complex carbohydrates and protein help to maintain steady blood sugar levels throughout the day.  This helps to sustain energy and prevent irritability and cravings for sweet foods and stimulants. Here are 10 of my favourite snack ideas:

1. A smoothie with fruit and/ or vegetables and some nuts and/ or seeds

2. 25g mozzarella with a handful of cherry tomatoes

3. Cut-up raw veggies (e.g. carrots, celery, fennel, pepper, courgette) with 2 tablespoons of hummus

4. 1 apple sliced and spread with 1 tablespoon of nut butter

5. Small pot of plain full-fat Greek-yogurt with a handful of berries

6. A hard-boiled egg

7. A handful of edamame beans

8. A small handful raw nuts (approx.14 almonds)

9. 1 oatcake and ½ mashed avocado

10. 1 medium apple/pear/plum/kiwi/clementine and 5 almonds/ 5 cashew nuts/ 2 brazil nuts

Hope these tasty and healthy ideas keep your energy levels up. Happy snacking!
