Fruit skewers = healthy snacks

So easy too, cocktail sticks, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, melon, mango, whatever you want!

Great for taking to work for a mid morning snack, or give them to your kids instead of sweets and crisps.

Pre workout snacks

Ok, so you’re heading to the gym, going for a run or about to get off your butt and do something sweaty! Make sure you fuel up with something healthy, tasty and worthy of the effort you’re about to put in….here’s a few suggestions

Yoghurt a-go-go: For the perfect blend of carbs and protein, try 1 cup non-fat vanilla bean Greek yogurt — which often packs more protein and probiotics than regular plain yogurt — with ½ cup fresh blueberries.

Eggs n’ Toast; Try 1 or 2 hard-boiled eggs with 1 slice of whole-wheat toast.

Fruit and Cottage: Top ½ cup cottage cheese — a low calorie and higher protein option — with ½ cup fresh pineapple, berries, or melon.

PB Apple: For a quick carb fuel-up, slice 1 medium apple and serve with 2 tablespoons all-natural peanut butter.

Classic fruit cup: Prefer to keep it sweet but simple? Combine 1 cup berries, melon, banana, and oranges.

Dried fruit: For a quick pre-workout fix, try ¼ cup serving of dried berries, apricots, and pineapple.

PB & B toast: Fuel up with 1-2 tablespoons of all-natural peanut butter and half a sliced banana on whole-wheat toast.

Turkey Pasta- Add 2-4 ounces (or a palm-sized amount) of roasted turkey and 3-4 avocado slices to ½ cup cooked whole-wheat pasta for some enviable eats.
