Have healthier alternatives to sugar-filled snacks on hand to beat the 3 o’clock sweet cravings
-A few Medjool dates and 4 Brazil nuts provide a delicious caramel-like treat, full of fibre.
-Full fat Greek yogurt with berries and cinnamon for blood sugar stabilization.
-Corn thins with cottage cheese and honey to fill you up and satisfy the craving for sweetness.
-DIY Trail mix (think almonds, brazil, cashews, walnuts, sunflower and pepitas), along with some dried fruit (go for goji berries, apricots, apples, figs, dates and raisins).
-Crackers and guacamole. If you’re after a savoury fix try wholegrain crackers topped with guacamole (preferably homemade). The healthy monounsatured fats found in avocados will help give you a sense of satiety, so you won’t be tempted by the cookie jar around 3pm.
-Homemade protein balls made with dates, nuts, seeds, and coconut are easy to make and are just what you need to satisfy any afternoon sugar cravings.
-Give organic miso soup a go. This nourishing snack, made from fermented soy beans, is rich in health promoting probiotics that support digestive and immune health.
