So....Training, long days at work, life...
If you feel like you constantly need to snack on something, better make it a healthy one!
Here are a few ideas to suit all cravings:
Mid morning/afternoon snack time (hassle free) is HERE!
"Slice of heaven"
1 slice of wholemeal bread
dash of olive oil
2-5 mini mozzarella balls / 1 slice of smoked , quality salmon
2-3 cherry tomatos (halves)
1-2 basil leaves
'Crunchy bread sticks' (to have ready in advance)
3 slices wholemeal bread
1-2 table spoons olive oil
1 tea spoon Zaatar ( spice)
Make a dip:Whole tahini/cream fresh/smashed Avo/Guacamole/
First brush your slices with olive oil. Then, time to spice up those bread slices!
Cut each slice to 4-5 thin (vertical) 'sticks' and most them for approx.2 mins on a hot pan (each side)
'Endive boats ' (Savoury/sweet/however you fancy combining)
What I love about Endive leaves is that you can take one out and its little boat form is preserved ..makes it super easy to chuck something in there when you're in a rush!
3-6 slices of Endive (with the white stuff)
bit of olive oil
1/3 mango cut into tiny cubes
1/4 tea spoon balsamic vinegar
drop of honey
1 -2 basil leaves thinly cut and placed on top
kohlrabi sticks/other root veg (can't always find it in supermarkets)
1 large kohlrabi
olive oil (about 1 table spoon)
1/2 lemon juice/lime
bit of pepper and salt
Sweet energetic rice cake/cracker
1 slice wholegrain, lightly slated/not slated rice cake/cracker
1 table spoon whole tahini (made beforehand)
1/2 table spoon plan / sheep/goats cheese yogurt
Sprinkle of date syrup (with tea spoon)
2-3 grapes cut in half/or berry fruit that you like
1-2 hazelnuts -chopped
Just stack all that on your cracker and enjoy!
Banana delights - eat your banana in style! :)
1-2 sliced bananas (to circles) .*to make and save for when you fancy a sweet snack
1-2 tea spoons date syrup
For coating: place all these (bellow) in a large plate
3-4 desiccated coconut
1- 1/2 tea spoon ground cinnamon
3-5 crushed Walnuts
simply spread some date syrup on each banana slice (with sides),
Coat each banana slice
You can freeze for a few hours and make it last a bit longer for next day as well:)
It's a date!
3-6 pitted Medjool dates
3-6 rocket leaves (Or non if you don't like them)
1-3 tea spoons of soft, light goats cheese/cream fresh
3-6 Walnuts/pecan nuts (1 per date)
Simply fill each date with the ingredients/some above
Bon appetit and please don't go starving in between meals:)
