Many people see snacks as desserts, but snacks can be wonderful and satisfying without having to be sweet, the secret is to use good fats or some interesting tastes such as those found in antipasto style foods. You can use smaller amounts of meals for snacks, such as a couple of veggie patties or meatballs with a dip, an egg with crushed avocado etc. With just a bit of prep and ensuring your weekly shopping list has some additions to it, you will be good to go:)


Here are some great snack ideas:




  • Sauerkraut (aim for raw)
  • sauted asparagus
  • olives
  • artichokes
  • goats or sheep cheese
  • veggie sticks
  • dips (homemade ones are the best and take under 5 minutes!)
  • sliced spring onion or red onion


*avoid buying the above with additives


*avoid deli meats which contain nitrates




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


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

  • Fennel
  • Capsicum

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
