Healthy Snacks

  1. Eat natural whole foods. Single ingredient is the best, e.g. a carrot, an apple, an avocado.

  2. Ideally you shouldn't eat anything that comes in a packaging with a nutrition label.

  3. If it comes with a packaging, there should be no more than six ingredients. 

  4. Choose foods that are low in refined carbs and sugars, no preservatives, no artificial flavourings or colorings.

  5. You should understand or recognise all the ingredients listed on the nutrition label.

  6. Think how to maximise nutrient density, rather than how to minimise calories. 

Stuffed Avocado
Avocado

Avocados are a superfood. They are delicious, nutritious, rich in fibre, potassium, monounsaturated fatty acids and very satiating. 

Chunk of Chocolates
Dark Chocolate
Fruits and Nuts
Raw Nuts & Seeds, Nut Butters

Choose raw, unroasted and unsalted nuts.

Ideally organic ones. 

Try: Organic Navitas, Now Foods

Almond Butter, Nuttzo

Bowl of Berries
Berries

Again, get organic berries because it is one of the Dirty Dozen produce.

Fresh berries literally tick all the boxes in terms of single ingredient, no nutrition label, low in sugar and high nutrient density.

Green Beans
Fresh Vegetables 

Buy organic especially if you are going to eat them raw. Many options: 

broccoli, carrots, cucumber, bell peppers, lightly cooked sugar snaps/ french beans/ edamame

Olive Appetizer
Antipasto - Olives, Artichokes, Peppers

Just trying to think out of the box a little bit. Sounds a bit messy / greasy to eat as you work at a desk. It's just an option filled with healthy fats rather than refined carbs and sugars. 

Fresh Pickles
Fermented pickles

Fermented pickles, kimchi, kefir and miso contain prebiotics that support a healthy gut microbiome. They are also low in calories and rich in electrolytes.

Acai Bowl
Acai Bowl

Get ready-made or make your own acai bowl with acai powder per package instructions, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup of frozen berries and a bit of nut milk.

Fruit Shake
Collagen or Protein Powder

It is not something you can eat, but collagen powder is highly nutritious and satiating. Add to cold or hot drink, coffee, tea, soups and smoothies. Try Primal Kitchen, Vital Proteins, Bulletproof, Dr. Axe, Vegan can try the precursor collagen BUILDING peptides.

Healthy Yogurt
Plain Yoghurt

Go for organic, pasture-raised full fat yoghurt, which holds plenty of fat-soluble vitamins and nutrients. Low fat or fat-free yoghurt is less nutritious with more sugar. Try coconut yoghurt as a non-dairy option. 

Hardboiled Eggs
Hard Boiled Egg

Again, go for organic, free range and ideally pasture-raised eggs. The higher the quality, the more nutritious, more vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids to support your health.

Salami
Jerky, Cured Meats, Cheese

Try these:

Vegan Jerk,  EPIC bar , Cheese bar

Cottage Cheese, Halloumi, Feta, Ricotta

Bowl of Poke
Fish 

Seriously, who says you cannot have fish as a snack. Fish is a great source of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. 

Try a slice of smoked salmon, canned fish, even a poke bowl.

Beet Chips
Vegetable, Kale, Beets Chips
