Foods to keep you going between meals

Snacking has become a huge part of people’s diets and preoccupies many of your thoughts over the day. What to eat? How much to eat? Is this healthy? Should I have protein? Is a piece of fruit too high in sugar?

Argh, when did it become so complicated?!

So I want to simplify it with a few suggestions…

Are you ready for a change?

  1. Ditch the packets (or as many as you can)
  2. Think real food, with no random ingredients or marketing claims. We don’t need a packet to tell us an apple is healthy. It just is. Ignore those who say it contains too much sugar; terrible people.
  3. Consider your hunger level. We don’t all need snacks. It’s ok to be hungry for a wee while, so as long as you don’t push the panic button and engulf the staff snack box. If the stomach is growling; feed it with something decent and move on. I’m thinking some cheese slices on grainy crackers, a bowl of yoghurt and nuts or a smoothie if handy.
  4. Consider your lack of hunger. So are you bored? Then go find another response that doesn’t involve hand to mouth action. Walk, talk, read, rest. If the will to eat takes over, choose low energy foods like vegetable sticks, plain popcorn, hydrate, eat an apple or pear!
  5. Pre-prepare; buy readymade hummus, pesto, cottage cheese, canned tuna, boil some eggs, chop some vegetables, portion up bags of nuts/seeds or crackers.
  6. Always include colour in your snack that contributes to your 5+ a day (come on we all can be doing 7+).
  7. Enjoy it.
  8. Repeat it. Then it becomes easier and more sustainable.
  9. Share it. If you’re enjoying a pleasure food like a slice, then share it. All bought slices are really 2 serves in 1.
  10. Lastly, if you need specific ideas for you, get in touch!
