My 5 Favourite Low Sugar Snack Ideas

Sometimes the fitness regime comes easy but keeping the food on track is that little bit more difficult. What can you reach for to satisfy a sweet or savoury tooth without undoing all your hard work? A sweet tooth is a tough one because when it comes to dropping body fat – sugar is a major no no. So what can you eat if you fancy a “treat” ? Here are a few of my favourite low-sugar snack options.

 

Fulfil Nutrition Protein Bars

Fulfil Nutrition Protein Bars

1: Low Sugar Protein Bars
This is literally one of the things that keeps me sane! I love protein bars as a little snack – and there are so many to choose from these days. You do have to be careful though. Some pack as much sugar as your standard bar of chocolate. My current favourites are:
Fulfil Nutrition
Quest
Nutramino Lean
Each of these carries less than 3g of sugar per bar and a massive 20g of protein. Try them!

 

 

2: PRO-YO (Protein Yoghurt)
Protein yoghurt is definitely something I reach to at night as a dessert after my evening meal. Here’s how to whip it up.

What You Need:
• 3-4 Tblspns Liberte or Fage or Chobani 0% Fat Greek Yoghurt
• 1/2 Scoop Whey Protein (flavour of your choice)
• Small handful of chopped nuts

What To Do:
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and DEVOUR!
For an extra treat as a clean dessert idea – you can add some toasted oats, blueberries, nut butters or raw cacao sauce. Delicious! Tastes like a crunch corner or angel delight!
3: Kale Crisps

• Fresh Kale
• Low calorie spray
• Seasoning  (According to your own taste! I usually use Cayenne Pepper, Himalayan Pink Salt, Chilli Powder)
Preheat oven to 200C
Tear the leafy part of the kale from the husk and place – spaced out – on a covered oven tray.
Spray with low-calorie spray (you can use melted coconut oil but it’s harder to coat the kale).
Season with spices of your choice.
Turn off the oven and place the tray inside to sit in the heat for 5-6 mins.
Keep an eye as they can burn quite quickly. Once the kale has become crispy it’s ready to serve!
