When following a healthy eating meal plan it can be difficult to think of healthy and tasty snacks to have in between main meals.
Having a range of healthy options on hand like dips, veggie sticks, wholegrain crackers, nuts, seeds, yoghurt etc makes it easy to choose the right types of snacks.
Being prepared and making healthy snack recipes in advance is also a great way to follow a healthy eating diet plan.
