Popcorn is a great cheap and cheerful snack to always keep on hand. What’s great about popcorn is that it’s like a blank canvas, so you can transform it into whatever snack you desire. Adding some healthy fats from nuts boosts the satiation factor, and a little dried fruit or some dark chocolate chips will give you that delicious sweet and salty pairing that satisfies cravings.
DIY trail mix
Making your own trail mix is as easy as mixing together a handful of almonds, dried cherries, raisins and whole-grain cereal in a zip-lock bag. Whole grains provide fibre, which will keep you full, and are often fortified with vitamins that you might not be getting enough of. For added goodness, add unsweetened dried cranberries to give you that hint of natural sweetness while also providing extra fibre.
Whole-grain toast or crackers
Whole-grain bread and crackers provide essential carbs for energy. For a filling and satisfying snack, simply add a spread or topping of your choice, such as hummus, cream cheese, mashed sardines or slices of cheddar.
An excellent source of protein, Vitamin B12 and selenium, hard-boiled eggs make an easy and satisfying midday snack. Enjoy your eggs sprinkled with a little Aromat seasoning for added flavour.
