LOW CARB SNACK RECIPES
Take a sneak peak at one of our delicious recipes from our 30-Day Transformation Program:
It is a good idea to eat three meals and no more than two snacks throughout the day. A snack in the morning and one in the afternoon can keep your blood sugar level balanced, ensuring you have sustained energy throughout the day. Snacks can often be seen as a treat and therefore become unhealthy. It is very important to eat healthy snacks and only eat them if you are genuinely hungry. It is also important to combine carbohydrate and protein in your snacks.
Fruit & Nut Energy Bars
(Makes Approx. 5 bars or 10 balls. Eat 1 bar or 2 balls as a snack)
- 8 Organic Dates
- 5 Dried Figs (Optional)
- 35g of Almonds
- 90g Raw Uncooked Oats, blended into powder
- 1 Serving of Chocolate Protein Powder
Add in small amounts of water if needed to bind. Blend/pulse in blender: prunes, figs and almonds. Then add oats and protein powder.
NOTE: Very sticky consistency and the nuts are not evenly chopped. Roll into balls or bars, wrap individual bars in plastic wrap, and place in the freezer until ready to eat.
Forget the bread; next time you’re serving chicken, seafood or tuna salad, try serving it in an avocado half instead.
