Healthier snacking alternatives
Calling all super snackers! If you love a mid-morning pick me up, an afternoon treat or, like us, love to graze your way through the day, take a look at these healthier food choices and enjoy guilt-free snacking! Don’t get us wrong, if there’s cake on offer, we won’t say no to a slice – and neither should you! But, if you’re keen to curb your sugar cravings, lose a few pounds or simply eat a balanced diet, these snacking swaps will help you out.
Carb Killa® bar instead of a chocolate bar
Good news for all you chocoholics out there. Our Carb Killa® bars taste just as good (maybe better!) than your favourite sweet fix but with a fraction of the sugar! With just 2g per bar, alongside a huge punch of protein, you can enjoy guilt-free, chocolatey goodness! For something a little more indulgent, try melting a bar and creating your own delicious dessert. Simply place in a microwaveable bowl and heat for 10-15 seconds. Add chopped banana and a dollop of our Carb Killa® spread and tuck in!
Infused water instead of sugary drinks
Now, we all know the importance of staying hydrated. With infused water, you can stay hydrated and on track. It’s also a great chance for you to get creative with different flavours and varieties. Need a holiday? Try infusing pineapple and coconut and, voila! You’re basically on a beach in the med! Raspberry and mint and strawberry and kiwi are also great options. If you’re still craving some fizz, try using sparkling water instead of still – it’ll instantly make your drink feel a little bit more indulgent.
Fro-yo instead of ice cream
Who doesn’t love curling up on the sofa and digging into a tub of the good stuff? As delicious as it is, ice cream is typically packed full of fat and sugar so, if you’re having a hard time stopping yourself demolishing the whole tub, try fro-yo instead. Generally, frozen yoghurt has fewer calories and less sugar than ice cream and many varieties are rich in probiotics, making it easier to digest and particularly better for those with lactose intolerance.
Pitas instead of bread
For many, bread is a staple within their diet. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, bread can rise to any occasion. But how does pita fare in comparison? Well, a whole wheat pita bread typically contains higher levels of both protein and fibre and often fewer calories than two slices of bread. Fibre can be difficult to get into your daily diet so swapping your loaf for this tasty alternative isn’t a bad shout! You can also use pita bread as an alternative to high-carb and calorie pizza bases – add tomato puree, mozzarella, veggies and protein, grill until golden and you’re good to go!
