healthy_eatingWhen you decide that you are ready to try and lose weight, one of the things that many mums find hard to get their head around is regular snacking.
As part of the Lose Baby Weight plans we recommend a healthy morning and afternoon snack every day.
Why’s that? Well snacking helps to get you from meal to meal without losing energy; it keeps your metabolism firing (which is needed for weight loss); and it helps to keep your mind sharp and focused.
But if you’re not sure what would make a healthy snack, we can help.
Today we have fifteen healthy 100-calorie-or-less snacks that you can pull together in no time at all.
Why not make up a load of packs and keep them in the pantry cupboard, fruit bowl or fridge so that you can grab them and go.
Where needed, zip lock bags are great for this, as are small plastic containers.

  • 14 almonds (98 calories) – almonds are a great source of protein, fibre and healthy fats. It’s important to choose unroasted and unsalted nuts as they are much better for you
  • 1 pear (96 calories) – a great portable snack, pears are high in fibre yet low in sugar
  • 10 raw, unsalted cashews (88 calories) – cashews are rich in iron, potassium and folate
  • 20 pistachios (66 calories) – rich in protein and magnesium, pistachios also contain Vitamin E
  • 1 banana (90 calories) – the ultimate fast food. These portable snacks are full of fibre to keep you fuller for longer
  • 30 cherries (90 calories) – these are the lowest GI of any fruit, they also contain fibre and protein
  • 6 dried apricots (76 calories) – dried fruits are a great snack, you need to watch the portion size though. You can read more about that here.

  • 2 kiwi fruits (78 calories) – sweet and full of flavour, these are a healthy low GI fruit
  • 1 cup air popped popcorn (31 calories) – popcorn can be a healthy snack if you air pop it and then season lightly with salt and pepper
