These are great for people who sit at a desk all day (me!!), or may be watching their carb intake:
- Green apple and cheese
- Red apple and peanut butter
- Veggie sticks and avo, hummus or greek yoghurt-based dip
- Celery or carrot with peanut butter – try to go with a natural peanut butter, without added preservatives or mixing agents.
- Cottage cheese or yoghurt, and berries
- Almonds, walnuts or other nuts – just watch your portion size, because they're high in fat
- Strawberries - full of fibre!
- Cucumber and cheese
- Olives – I'm so guilty of eating these while cooking dinner
- Chia pudding - literally just chia seeds, coconut/other milk, tiny bit of maple syrup and cinnamon stirred and set in fridge overnight
- Roasted chick peas
- Edamame – roasted or plain
- Seaweed crackers – like made 100% out of seaweed, you can find them at Costco or the international or Gluten free section of your local (larger) supermarket
- Avo on toast, crackers or rice cake - just load it up with toppings! Let them fill you up, rather than the receptacle, you feel me?
- Yoghurt – Add protein powder or fruit to flavour a natural yoghurt (and check that the sugar content isn’t higher than 12g per 100g (ref Https://daa.asn.au/))
- Smoothie or protein shake
- Long black with a dash of milk
- Cup of Tea
- Homemade protein bars, muffins, protein/bliss balls or biscuits
- Beef jerky
- Canned tuna or salmon
- Tuna melt on one piece of toast, skinny bagel/sandwich or rice cake
- Hard boiled eggs
- Egg muffins
- Turkey roll ups – sliced turkey with cucumber and cheese wrapped up in it. Or a very thin egg-only omelette, rolled up with turkey or ham.
- Kale chips
- Air popped popcorn
Some of these are just low in calorie and will keep you satisfied when those extra-hungry days hit. Otherwise known as empty-belly days; where you're just always hungry, for whatever reason.
