snack options that will leave you feeling refreshed and pleased with yourself.
Apple Slices and Cheese
- This is a tasty combination for a satisfying snack. Apples
are full of yuminess and it is a great way to get fruit into your diet also.
- Crisp, juicy apples are a brilliant snack to
pair with other food items. Apples will boost your immune system and help
achieve a healthier heart because they are a great source of fibre.
- The amazing
ranges of apples you can find in supermarkets are amazing. You do not have to be rigid when it comes to
choosing your favourite kind of apples to snack on. You can choose from various
apple varieties such as red and golden delicious apples, gala, fuji, granny
smith, braeburn, and honeycrisp apples.
- Wash and cut your apple into a few slices when you are ready to eat. You
can add some cheese for a brilliant snack. Again, there is so much variety with
the cheeses that you can pair with your apples slices but cheddar is a common
- Just dice the cheese into
mini chunks and add to your plate of apples. And there you are, a simple yet
Carrot Sticks - Easy and Tasty
- Carrot Sticks are a fun and healthy snack to enjoy, taking
the greatness of a carrot and putting in a bitesized format. Carrots are great
because they lower cholesterol and are another great source of fibre. Carrot
sticks are crunchy and simple to arrange.
Carrot sticks do indeed keep your vision sharp because they contain a
good amount of Vitamin A. Carrot Sticks will also booster your bone health as
well, there are great benefits all round.
Wondering how to cut whole carrots into bitesized carrot sticks? Here is a
simple step-by-step guide:

soft spots. We need to have our carrots in good shape in order to prepare a
- Wash the carrots under cold running water to remove any
traces of soil or debris. Pat the carrots dry with a clean paper towel.
- Prepare the carrots by removing thin strips of the outer
peeling with a vegetable peeler. Start at the largest end of the carrot and
make long even strokes to the small end.
- Turn the carrot after each stroke to work your way around
the outside of the carrot. Cut both end off the carrot with a knife.
- Place the carrot on a flat surface and cut it into two
halves, if you prefer shorter carrot sticks, cut the carrot into thirds. Cut
each of these sections again into halves.
- Munching on fresh carrot sticks is a very healthy food
choice. Try carrot sticks to curb your appetite between meals.
Wholesome Granola Bars
- Granola bars are a healthy filling snack that appeals to so
many people. But you need to check the ingredients of the granola bar properly
to make sure that it is not just loaded with sugar. Here are some great ideas
for tasty granola bars.
- An antioxidant packed granola bar consisting of chia seeds,
apples and cinnamon, such as the Healthy Warrior Chia Bars.
- Some bars have a decent amount of chocolate chips to satisfy
your sweet tooth yet not cheat your body. These are also good options. The best
granola bars are made with whole grain oats. Finding a chocolate chip granola
bar like this similar to enjoying a guilt-free chocolate chip cookie, just
- Another popular granola bar is the KIND cashew and spice
bar, which is a little sweet and a little spicy. A flavourful bar that throws
in inflammation-reducing ginger for an extra immunity boost.
- How about a bar that blends luscious apricots, nuts and
vanilla for a gluten free, vegan bar ? Check out the
Ginnybakes Karma, love and Apricot Ginnybar for this.
- Other great flavours to try for healthy granola bars are
bars with almonds, honey, pumpkin seeds, coconut and a bit of dark chocolate. There are just so
many wonderful options. Just be sure to double-check the ingredients to make
sure the sugar content is not high.
Super Dairy Snack - Yoghurt and Fruit
Yoghurt and fruit is another wonderful snack option. Yoghurt smoothes skin, soothes your stomach
and contains all sorts of goodness, so it is a must-have dairy item. Go for healthy probiotic yoghurt, which will
provide digestive aid. Probiotic yoghurt is full of good bacteria that your
digestive system just loves, so be sure to get some of that tummy loving care.
Low-fat yoghurt can help reduce the risk of high blood pressure and boost your
body's immune system.
Yoplait is has a great selection of probiotic yoghurt to
help you embrace the great taste of this healthy snack. The great thing about Yoplait
yoghurt is that it contains live and active cultures that help break down lactose,
making it a dairy product that many people with lactose intolerance can
enjoy. I love Activia probiotic yoghurt,
which also helps reduce the frequency of many digestive issues as part of a
balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. You
can find low-fat probiotic yoghurt in many forms, including the standard packet
that can be eaten with a spoon and the drinkable cartons.
Fruit is a great compliment for many snacks including
yoghurt so be sure to include fruits like berries into your yoghurt.
Blueberries and Strawberry are good options that will enhance many types of yoghurt.
For an even more satisfying yoghurt
combination, you can add granola flakes from your favourite whole meal or nutty
cereal. It's just delightful, what you can do with the simplest Greek yoghurt
(although they are very tasty by themselves).
