If like me you often find yourself reaching for a tasty snack, this can be PRECISELY the moment your day unravels and I think this comes down to what you have in the house, but when you feel like having a snack – that’s allowed! Even a cookie is allowed! But to avoid the bitter disappointment of finding yourself face down in a bucket of chocolate (as I said – don’t have it in the house!) here are some healthy snack ideas that will leave you guilt free. They also can be served as a starter too!
- Beetroot Crisps! Using a mandolin slicer, slice the beetroot thinly and lay out on the grill, you can add a touch of oil/salt but I leave them plain, take them out when they are crispy enough for you (for me this is around 15-20 minutes). These are really tasty and the smell of them roasting is wonderful.
- Cabbage in a Mug This one is probably the one I do most often and may be my favourite, steamed cabbage is delicious and sweet and often exactly what I need, don’t knock it till you’ve tried it, I don’t know why I got into the habit of serving these in mugs it just felt most appropriate.
- Roasted Broccoli Broccoli has this lovely way of going crispy when you put it in the oven, I place it on a baking tray and cover with nutritional yeast (or the “cheese” of your choice)
- [As per one of my earlier posts] Roasted Chickpeas are an amazing snack, just chickpeas laid out on a baking tray, add some olive oil, salt, maybe a dash of cayenne pepper and leave to roast for 35 minutes.
