Healthier snacking: what are the best healthy snacks?
Here at Grenade®, we love a good snack. Not the boring, tasteless kind but the kind that fuel your active lifestyle, satisfy your taste buds and provide you with tons of nutritional benefits.
We may be bias, but we think our snacking range is the best – we started the snacking revolution, after all!
Whether it’s a quick midday pick me up you need or a breakfast option that’ll keep you full right through till lunchtime, we’ve got a snack for you.
Here’s the lowdown on our snacking range - enjoy!
I just want a chocolate bar! What’s a good alternative?
If you want the chocolate bar, have the chocolate bar – life’s all about balance, right? But if you’re looking for a low sugar, high protein alternative to your fave sweet treat then Carb Killa® is the bar for you. With a delicious chocolate coating and a thick caramel layer, Carb Killa® will curb those cravings without loading your body with unnecessary amounts of sugar. With less than 2g of the sweet stuff and over 20g of protein, you can enjoy guilt-free indulgence.
What if I’m vegan or gluten free?
Grenade® aim to cater to all life athletes, whatever their dietary needs. Packed full of nutty goodness, our Carb Killa® Go Nuts™ bar is vegan-friendly and gluten free! Containing absolutely nuttin’ artificial, this vegan nut bar hits the healthy snacking mark but offers tons of flavour too. Pop this must-have bar in your lunchbox, gym bag or in your pocket so you’re always armed with a healthy snack when hunger strikes.
I lead a very active lifestyle – what snack will sustain me for longer?
Oats are a great, slow-release carb, keeping you fuller for longer. But not everyone can stomach a bowl of porridge every time they're feeling a little peckish. Our Reload® flapjacks contain a balanced ratio of 2:1 carbs to protein so you can eat them at anytime. The carbs within these tasty bars are delivered through a complex, slow release source (oats, of course), which take the body longer to breakdown and result in energy being distributed over a long period of time. So if you're looking for a snack to carry you through to your next meal, Reload® is your best bet.
How can I add some indulgence to my everyday snacks?
You’ve probably heard about our Carb Killa® spreads – if not, where have you been? A tasty topping on toast or an indulgent filling for croissants, bagels and crepes (just like these beauties, created by Grenade® ambassador Elkie Chiu), these jars of deliciousness are absolute game changers. If you're feeling particularly indulgent, you can always grab a spoon and dive straight in - this is definitely our favourite way to enjoy the spreads!
So, there you have it! We’re all for living a balanced lifestyle, which is why we believe snacking should be both healthy and fun. Because boring definitely won’t help you quash those cravings!
