3 Quick and Easy Healthy Snack Swaps

If you’re keen for simple, wholesome nutritious snacks but don’t want to miss out on the convenience that comes with their processed counterparts, look no further! We’ve got a few easy solutions that are as convenient as they are delicious.

Chips for roast chickpeas

Swap your salt and trans-fat-laden chips out for roast chickpeas – they’ve got that same satisfying crunch and snack-worthiness, minus the health hazards. It doesn’t hurt that chickpeas are an excellent source of dietary fibre, which can help promote digestive health and regularity. It also helps to manage blood-sugar levels, lower cholesterol levels, along with maintaining satiety and reducing the risk of overeating. These humble legumes are also rich in protein, iron and potassium for whole-body health – win, win, win! Add a little bit of paprika, cinnamon, cardamon and a crack of salt for that perfect snack flavour.

Lollies for strawberries

If you’re craving something sweet, lollies are often a common choice – but these guys are packed with added sugars, preservatives and colours – all of which are inflammatory and promote the growth of bad bacteria in the gut. If you’re looking for a burst of sweetness that is convenient, tasty and nutritious, opt for strawberries instead. Their natural sweetness hits the spot, while providing a good dose of antioxidants, vitamin C and fibre. These berries will boost your immunity and leave you far more satisfied than any lolly ever could! Enjoy them with a bit of yoghurt or cheese for a dose of calcium. 

Chocolate for nuts

Looking for a snack as satisfying as chocolate? If you’re not a dark chocolate fan, consider swapping your milk chocolate out for nuts instead! These are protein, iron and fibre powerhouses that will keep you feeling energised and full. Unlike milk chocolate, nuts will provide you with long-lasting energy and will help prevent that afternoon slump. Their healthy fat content also works to fight sugar cravings and prevent overeating. If you’re looking for a sweeter profile, pistachios and pecans are great choices, and while technically not a nut, you can’t go wrong with cashews either! Cashews in particular are a great source of monounsaturated, these are the good kind of fats which help lower the bad kind of cholesterol levels and increase, which then reduces the risk of heart disease. You may choose to enjoy your nuts roasted with spices or with whole fruit. If you enjoy the bitter taste of high-percent dark chocolate, then you’ll love combining it with your choice of nuts for the ultimate indulgent – yet wholesome! – treat.
