Switch up that snack for tasty satisfaction!


WEEK 4: TRY SOMETHING NEW!

Think healthy eating is bland? No way! Healthy eating tastes great! Keep it interesting: get creative with cooking strategies, experiment with new foods and flavours and refresh your recipes.

A piece of fruit, handful of nuts, veggies with dip. These snacks are definitely in the good-for-you category. But if you’re seeking new ideas, reach for one of these nourishing snacks that are anything but basic:

  • 1⁄2 whole grain bagel with ricotta, sliced strawberries (fresh or defrosted frozen) and a drizzle of honey.
  • Spicy lentil hummus on celery sticks with a sprinkle of black olive slivers.
  • A small sliced apple topped with peanut butter, toasted coconut and raisins.
  • Avocado half filled with creamy cottage cheese, chunky salsa and a squeeze of juicy lime.
