FRUIT & NUTS
Berries are rich in beneficial nutrients while being relatively low in sugar compared with other fruits. Take a small handful of raspberries or blueberries and combine with a small palmful of nuts like pecans or walnuts.
Coconut Collaborative make handy, single serving pots. Choose the natural, unflavoured version and add a small handful of berries.
Nibble Protein bites are made with low GI dried plumbs so they contain typically half the sugar of other balls and bars. We love their Choc Chip Cookie Dough and Fudgy Lemon Shortbread flavours.
Stick to dark chocolate, ideally 85% plus. Cox & Co Vegan Chocolate is made with 85% cacao dark chocolate and raw cacao nibs and comes in single serving 35g bars.
Take two tablespoons of good quality, unsweetened nut butter and spread on slices of one small organic apple.
