Top 10 Snacks for Trying to be Good

Following on from my Fitness Journey post, i thought i'd share with you a couple of snacks that i've been choosing when i want something easy but not super bad for you. Now, i'm not on a diet and i'm not cutting out all sugar or all carbs, i'm just trying to make healthier choices so these are just some alternatives to maybe things that i would normally go for.

For crisp options i've been really enjoying the Walkers Sea Salted Sunbites. They're not the healthiest crisp option out there but they're multigrain and are low in fats, which is great. They're much better for you than your usual Walkers Ready Salted crisps that's for sure. Another alternative are these Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks which i found in my local Tesco, but i know M&S do something similar. They're a baked snack, which is always a great place to start, and are made from green peas and rice. For those of you with allergies too they're free from sesame, peanuts, nuts, milk, dairy and much, much more.

I eat plenty more fruit than i ever have before; bananas, red grapes and jazz apples being my current favourites, but if you fancy something a little different or just want something for your bag then i would perhaps try dried fruit. The Urban Fruit Cheeky Cherries are really yummy, they're almost like eating a gummy sweet. They're sugar free and contain no preservatives, and all they contain is cherries. There's also banana chips, the ones i buy are from Whitworths and they're sweet without being too much and make you almost feel like you're having a treat. They're full of fibre and are a great way to increase your fibre intake, and are cooked in coconut oil which is much better for you and adds to the flavour.

Another easy on-the-go snack, whether it's for work or for a hotel room, etc, is tinned fruit. Fruit often goes off quite quickly so sometimes it's just easier, and i really enjoy these tinned mandarins. I love the juice they come in and they're really tasty, plus they're healthy too.

Lastly, if you're really craving that sweet treat but are trying to be good, then always go for dark chocolate. It's proven to be much better for you and if you pick the right one it doesn't have to taste like dirt. I've tried a lot and if you go too dark, they really do taste like mud but this Tesco Finest Peruvian 70% Dark Chocolate is just right. It's sweet without being too sweet and feels like you're having a treat without being too bad.

Something that's not pictured here but that i highly recommend are the Yoomoo Frozen Yoghurt Lollies. They come in three flavours and are so low in calories, but are a delicious, fruity, sweet treat to have after dinner.
