BACK TO UNI/WORK SNACK IDEAS TO KEEP YOUR HEALTH GOALS ON TRACK!

It's that time of the year again!

Time to get back into the books and ready for a new semester.

Quick and easy snacks that will keep your brain fueled and won't curb your health goals are essential to keep on hand!

Here are a few of my on-the-go snack ideas to take to work or uni:

1. Veggie sticks with hummus!

Slice up sticks of carrot, cucumber and celery to enjoy with a tub of organic hummus.

2. Breakfast jars

If you have an early lecture the next morning pre-prepare you breakfast the night before in a jar, this is perfect for when you have to rush out the door. Below is a recipe for my easy breakfast bowl, store it in a jar in the fridge and it will be ready to go in the morning when you are! Click HERE to get the recipe for my Quick & Easy Breakfast Bowl

3. Bliss balls/ healthy fudge truffles

At the start of each week I made up a batch of delicious treats to take with me when I'm out so I don't get stuck craving something sweet with 7 Eleven around the corner. I can't stress how important preparation is when sticking to a healthy diet! Click HERE for my Healthy Fudge Truffle recipe!

4. Trail mix

Create a trail mix of your favourite nuts and seeds and keep it in your bag as a go-to snack.

5. Baby tomatoes

Tomatoes are one of my favourite foods at the moment! When I don't have a lot of time to cook up a batch of healthy treats, I will take a punnet of spray-free baby tomatoes with me to snack on during the day.

6. Fruit

Easy-peasy, berries or bananas are always great and easy to take along with you.

7. Zoodles

Try this recipe for the perfect nutritious snack! Pack them in your bag for the ultimate raw snack. Click HERE if you want to make Raw Zucchini Noodles!

8. Raw chocolate

For all you chocolate lovers (myself included!) throw a few squares of raw vegan chocolate or 85% dark chocolate into your trail mix.

9. Boiled egg

10. Canned tuna on rye/gluten free crackers
