TRENDY SNACKS

Many people see snacks as desserts, but snacks can be wonderful and satisfying without just having to be sweet, the secret is to use good fats or some interesting tastes such as those found in antipasto style food. You can use smaller amounts of meals for snacks, such as a couple of meatballs with a dip, an egg with crushed avocado etc.

Here are some great snack ideas:

ANTIPASTO MIX AND MATCH

  • Sauerkraut (aim for raw)
  • sauted asparagus
  • olives
  • artichokes
  • goats or sheep cheese
  • veggie sticks
  • dips
  • sliced spring onion or red onion

*avoid buying the above with additives

*avoid deli meats which contain nitrates

DIPS WITH VEGIE STICKS

Use any dip of choice with any of the below chopped vegetables such as:

  • snowpeas
  • fennel
  • celery sticks
  • capsicum
  • carrots
  • cucumber

GREENSMOOTHIES

Using a glass jug blender combine the following:

  • Any leafy greens – Parsley, spinach, lettuces, beetroot leaves, kale, celery leaves, basil, coriander etc – only leaves (use 1 to 3 of these)
  • Banana, apple, pear, peach, any fruit is fine (use 1 of these, can use stevia instead if you need to lower insulin or glucose levels)
  • Water (enough to make it liquid enough to drink- 1 cup approx.)
  • Optional – garlic (great for infections/lowering blood pressure), ginger root (great for nausea/circulation) , turmeric (great for lowering inflammation)

*Only use fresh, organic (best) leafy greens, do not use the hard part or yellowed leaves.

*Add lemon or mint for extra tang

Green smoothies use the whole plant and do not remove the fiber as opposed to vegetable juices which remove the fiber
