5 Healthy Snacks to Stop you Reaching for the Chocolate

I’ll be honest, the first few weeks of working from home it was really hard to ignore the fridge and pantry! All the food that wasn’t normally there in my ‘healthy’ snack drawer in my desk was finally all available! Soon though the novelty wore off and some healthy swaps needed to be made. If you’re feeling the same pull to the fridge as we are, we rounded up 5 healthy snacks to keep you going and stop reaching for the chocolate and other sweet snacks.

Corn Thins + Toppings

Corn Thins are so versatile and come in a huge variety of flavours these days. The classic corn thins topped with peanut butter and banana slices are always a go to, but some other combos you can try include:

  • Avocado, tomato and salt and pepper
  • Vegemite and cheese
  • Cream cheese, ham and tomato 
  • Smoked salmon and cream cheese
  • Avocado and sliced boiled egg

Don’t be afraid to get creative with your toppings and corn thin flavour combos!

Berries & Yoghurt

The supermarket often has sales on those little snack tubs of Chobani and YoPro. Keep an eye out for these specials (usually you can get a little tub for $1 each!), stock up on your fave flavours and grab whatever berries are in season. Simply mix together and you have yourself a healthy snack! 

You can add some honey to sweeten it up if you need, or some muesli if you like that extra crunch.
