3 quick + simple snacks August 23 2017

We all know how busy our days can get - sometimes it gets so busy we forget to eat! When life gets a little crazy there’s a few tricks we keep under our hat to ensure we have a productive and healthy week. Today we will be sharing our go-to snacks around the studio for when the 3pm munchies hit!

Good old fruit & nuts and why they’re so good together! 

This is by far the quickest and easiest snack to prepare, just combine your favourite fruit with your favourite nuts! The reason why they are so perfect together is not just because of their yummy taste! The protein from the nuts actually stabilises blood sugar levels that might spike after eating fruit. Our favourite combinations are: mango and macadamia, strawberry and almond and banana and walnut.  

No Bake Protein Balls

While these take slightly longer to prepare (10 minutes) they are a great snack to meal prep on a Sunday and they should last you the week! We love this recipe from Gimme Some Oven. The only problem is they are so good you’ll eat them all in one sitting!

Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds have amazing health benefits but sometimes it's hard to know what to actually do with them! Chia pudding is one of our favourites as not only is it a great snack to have while at work, it's actually a super yummy and healthy dessert alternative too! Try this recipe from Tone It Up.
