Here is a visual guide to some quick, easy and nutritious snacks, rich in proteins, fats and fibre, in order to maintain satiety and good energy levels. You can even pack them in convenient snack boxes to take with you on the go.
Here’s a bit more about meals and snacks:
Generally speaking, it’s best to rely daily on 3 larger, filling, well-balanced meals, complete with well-sourced proteins, fats and carbohydrates and rich in fibre. This allows the body to digest and release a steady supply of energy in between the meals and gives the digestive system a rest.
However, when we rush around and aren’t able to sit down for a meal with enough time to enjoy and eat mindfully, it’s good to know which snacks and food combinations keep your energy-levels stable and keep you feeling full.
Tip: Avoid eating carbohydrates on their own, like fruit, biscuits or crackers. These will create a rapid spike in your blood sugar levels, which is then followed by a drop, leading to hunger – this is when we tend to reach for junk food and/or feel tired.
Remember to always stay hydrated by drinking water, and always avoid sugary drinks!
