Sliced Apple and Nut Butter
If you’re inclined to reach for the cookie jar when 3:30-itis strikes, why not try sliced apple and nut butter instead? Not only providing a good source of fibre, the nut butter offers protein and healthy fat, to keep you feeling full until dinner time.
Homemade Trail Mix
Unlike the traditional store bought variety that can house lots of added sugar, opt to make your own that you can keep in your desk drawer or gym bag. Combine some raw unsalted nuts with seeds and if you have a sweet tooth add some dried fruit and cacao nibs.
Veggie Sticks and Dip
When it comes to creating fresh and delicious combinations, the sky's the limit. Think carrots and hummus, celery and peanut butter, capsicum and guacamole or cucumber and cottage cheese.
While it’s best to opt for unprocessed wholefoods where possible, protein bars are a great option when you’re on-the-go and perfect to keep in your gym bag or desk drawer. Just check the sugar content before stocking up.
