Following a healthy nutritious diet is not always easy. That’s why we try to help you stay in shape and eat as healthy as possible. Snacks are most welcome during the day, especially on busy days when we don’t have enough time to eat a proper lunch.
Here is what we propose for 5 snacks under 200 calories. Easy to make, easy to eat!
1. Guacamole Dip
Combine 1/3 mashed avocado with 1 tablespoon chopped tomato, 2 teaspoon chopped onion, 1 teaspoon of fresh lime juice and half a teaspoon of freshly chopped and de-seeded chilli. Serve with 8 tortilla chips, carrot sticks, or celery sticks.
2. Curried Chickpeas
Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup drained, rinsed and dried tinned chickpeas. Cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping frequently. Toss with 1/2 teaspoon of curry power, and a generous pinch each of cumin, paprika, garlic powder and sea salt.
3. Parmasen & Chive Popcorn
Pop 2 tablespoons of popcorn kernerls (about 2 cups popped). Whisk together 1 tablespoon of grated parmasen, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of water, 2 generous pinches of garlic power and sea salt in a small microwavable bowl. Microwave for 10 seconds. Drizzle over popcorn. Toss well. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of finely chopped chives.
4. Roast Pear with Cinnamon Yoghurt
Coat 1 bosc pear, quartered with olive oil cooking spray. Bake in a 220C oven for 20 minutes, until tender. Cool slightly. Top the pear pieces with 1/4 cup of low-fat Greek yoghurt whisked with 1/2 tablespoon of agave nectar and a generous pinch of cinnamon.
5. Fresh Berries with Yoghurt
Fill up a cup with low-fat plain Greek style yoghurt with 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. Additionally you may also sprinkle on some museli.
