8 Delicious and Nutritious Snacks You Can Make at Home

Shedding fat and getting a lean body takes more than just sweating it out in the gym. Unbeknownst to many, your diet plays an equally important role in affecting your physiques. If you have always wanted those killer flat abs and Victoria’s Secret body, then it is imperative for you to enrich your body with wholesome and nutritious foods that keep your body full and nourish your system with the right minerals.

Sometimes, eating healthy means eating tasteless and bland food. Not here, though.

Luckily, eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. We’ve compiled a list of delicious snacks that are low in fat, high in protein and extremely healthy for your system. Best of all, they are tasty and keep satiate your appetite.

Here are 8 of our favourites!


1. Apple Chips

This is a healthy alternative to potato chips. If you are craving for something crispy and flavourful, then swap potato chips for homemade apple chips instead. They are extremely simple to make and very tasty!

Simply slice apples as thinly as possible. After that, toss them in some olive oil and bake them in the oven until crispy.


2. Kale Chips

Like apple chips, Kale Chips are a healthy alternative to potato chips. Kale is low in carbs, high in antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin K. They are also light but very tasty.

Pluck kale leaves off the stem and toss them in some olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake them in the oven until crispy.


3. Greek Yogurt Banana Smoothie

Smoothies from the juice bar are great for a hot day, but they are loaded with calories and artificial sugars. Luckily, you can make your smoothie healthier by blending it at home using healthy ingredients like Greek yogurt and Banana which are high in protein and potassium, respectively.

Combine Greek yogurt, one banana and additional toppings in a blender. You could try adding peanut butter, chia seeds, blueberries or strawberries to enhance the flavour.


4. Greek Yogurt Egg Salad

Egg salad (or egg mayo) is a tasty sandwich filling. However, mayonnaise is loaded with trans-fats and sugars. To make your egg salad healthier, swap the mayonnaise for Greek Yogurt instead. It is lower in fats and higher in protein!

Combined chopped hardboiled eggs with Greek yogurt. Add salt and pepper to taste.


5. Wholemeal Toast

Everyone loves a light sandwich for tea. However, white bread is high in calories, it is low in fibre and vitamin B. Wholemeal bread, on the other hand, is higher in fibre and contains more vitamins and minerals. It also keeps you full!

Swap your white bread for wholemeal bread instead.


6. Nutty Greek Yogurt Sundae

Like smoothies, sundaes are great weekend treats that are extremely satisfying and tasty. Sadly, this sweet treat is loaded with calories and trans-fats. They are also high in dairy and can lead to the development of acne.

Skip the sundaes at cafes and make your own instead. Simply crush some almonds and peanuts, chop some bananas and combine them with Greek yogurt. This DIY sundae is higher in fibre and healthy fats and also tastes great!


7. Peanut Butter Fudge

Chocolate fudge is divine, but they are loaded with sugars and fats! Luckily, if you need a nutty treat that is lower in calories, you can opt to make your own peanut butter fudge at home. They are much lower trans-fats and sugars.

To make your own peanut butter truffles, combine peanut butter, oil and honey (to taste) in a small saucepan over low heat. Next, transfer the mixture to an ice tray and place in the freezer until frozen. You can enjoy these nutty treats with a glass of soya milk on a rainy day.


8. Granola Bowl

Cereal and granola bars might be convenient breakfast options and snacks for many, but cereal and granola bars actually loaded with artificial sugars and flavourings. Swap cereal for granola instead – as granola is higher in fibre and iron.

Tip: combined some fresh fruits with granola and Greek yogurt for more vitamin C and extra flavour
