Healthy Snacks

How is snacking going? It is difficult to stop thinking of snacks as sugary breads, biscuits, chocolate and crisps.  Lets start associating fast, on the run food with easy, healthy alternatives.  How about washing and eating a whole bell pepper or tomato like an apple. Or wash celery, cucumber or carrots throw them into a bag and pop them into your handbag.  You do not have to spend lots of time cutting and chopping so whole veggies are a good option.
Here is another taste crispy snack.
Olive oil
100g Kale stem removed
dried mixed herbs
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.  Line the baking tray with foil and lightly brush the kale with a little olive oil.
Cut the leaves (removing the storks) into wide slices and arrange evenly spaced on the baking tray.
Bake for 15-20 mins being sure to stir, cook until the Kale is bright green and crisp.
Remove the leaves from the oven and season with herbs.

Another great one is celery sticks with peanut butter. Buy the Natural Source brand in the supermarket, this brand does not contain sugars or loads of preservatives.
Keep snacking the trick is not to let yourself get hungry.
