Power Snacking - Feed The Brain And The Body

Feeling snackish but don’t want to turn to the obvious chocolate bar or packet of crisps? Here are 8 snacks that have supercharged health benefits as well as bags of taste. :)

1. Avocado on warm brown toast.
Avocado is full of nutrients and ’healthy fats’ and has more potassium than a banana.

2. Dark chocolate.
Chocolate, the dark kind with more than 70% of coco, actually has many health benefits to the heart, circulation and brain.

3. Iced Americano with a touch of skimmed milk.
An iced Americano maximises the benefits of coffee and, if you need to, adding skimmed milk rather than full fat keeps it trim. Coffee contains some chemicals that can help the body naturally detoxify.

4. Pomegranate seeds
High in vitamin C, pomegranate can help boost your immune system.


5. Olive oil and dipping bread.
Olive oil's a healthy fat and a main component of the ’Meditteranean Diet’, which is considered one of the healthiest on earth.

6. Blueberries and raw cocoa nibs.
Blueberries and raw cocoa nibs are both rich in anti-oxidants that help to absorb free radicals, which damage your body.

7. Your own personalised Trail Mix.
Nuts and seeds are super healthy and most of us are not eating enough of them. They are a great ’all round’ source of protein, vitamins, fat and fibre.

8. Peanut butter on apple, banana or celery
Nutty butter has protein and potassium, which help guard against high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease, coupled with apples, which provide fibre and antioxidants.
