Snacks & More:)

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

balsamic vinegar 

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)

salt+ pepper

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:)

  • Stop weighing yourself so often- limit the number of times you do it. It distracts you from the objective! 

  • Stop counting calories- you may actually find it liberating and it will allow you in the   beginning to focus on quality Vs. quantity!  

  • Eat healthy! Cut back on processed & addictive food & beverages 

  • Start exercising, but make it so that you have fun with it! Try new, different things and don’t hesitate to take advice on all the possibilities that are out there for you to use! That way, you will probably find what you like!

  • If you are just starting, do it gradually!

  • Try not to compare yourself with others! Focus on yourself!
