Slimming World - Top 5 healthy snack ideas for 2016

January 12, 2016
It's 2016, and everyone is on a health drive, including myself! I'm about 6 months into my slimming world journey, and even though my weight loss has been slow, it's been steady! I've been cooking more and trying new recipes and I'm really enjoying it. Follow my personal Instagram for daily updates.

It's so easy to grab for the crisps and chocolates when you are slightly peckish, and one of the great things Slimming World teaches you is to food optimise and to pick healthier choices, and choice you have! there is so much you can have. I want to share with you my top 5 snack ideas that are easy and yummy!



 1. BOILED EGGS 
They are so easy because they keep for ages and all you need to do is boil them and keep them in their shells in the fridge until you want to eat them. When you want to grab a quick snack, un-peel the shell, cut in half and add some salt and pepper. the best bit is they are completely SYN FREE on Slimming World so if 1 doesn't hit the spot, have another! I like my eggs soft boiled, these were boiled for 6 minutes.




2. FRUIT AND YOGURT 
An obvious healthy choice but equally versatile. I will eat this for breakfast, dessert and a snack. Once you put a little time into washing, peeling and cutting fruit always taste so much better, and pour some yoghurt over your fruit of choice and you have a yummy snack! completely Syn free.




 3. HOMEMADE SOUP 
Soup is a great snack because you can make in big batches and it will keep for days. You can find how to make this soup here. This is butternut squash and carrot but you can make it with literally any veg and stock. It's full of speed foods, so tasty and very filling. again completely syn free.




 4. SUGAR FREE JELLY 
A healthy easy snack for a sweet tooth. All you need to do is add hot water and chill in the fridge to set. Hartley's sugar free jelly comes in various flavours and it's 1 1/2 syns per sachet, and I make 5 portions, thats not even a 1/2 sun per jelly, a great snack alternative. You can find these in most major supermarkets and is 75p for a twin pack.




5. HOMEMADE SALSA WITH RICE CRACKERS 
Homemade salsa is great for using up left over salad. cut up finely a tomato, red onion and parsley and serve in a dish. It's a great way of adding extra speed foods and it goes so well with thesTeriyaki Rice Crackers from The Snack Organisation*, a healthier alternative to crisps. You can get these from Tesco at £1 a packet. And the great thing is they are only around 100 calories per portion (that's 1 bowl as shown in the picture so it's a good size handful). The packets are portioned into 4 so you don't need to weigh anything (winner!). They work out 5 syns per portion, not bad for a yummy snack! Be careful though, they are incredibly moreish.
