It's time to take a much needed break, relax and recuperate. More often than not, this usually involves stuffing our faces with all kinds of unhealthy snacks.


Enjoy these affordable, easy to make snack ideas that your body will thank you for later.

1. Popcorn


Healthy, light treat that offers health benefits. Pop corn is a low in fat (as long a you don't overdo the oil or butter :)) and high in fiber snack.


It's "a better-for-you" alternative to other snacks like chocolate and crisps. Season as you wish to elevate your freshly popped popcorn.

An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.

3. Frozen grapes




Pop your grapes into the freezer for 5-8 hours and enjoy a delicious, exciting snack.

Top a protein rich egg with your favorite hot sauce to spice things up. Its a simple snack that will give you the power you need to get through the day.




 

5.Peanut butter banana toast



Super easy and yummy, a perfect grab and go snack. You can drizzle some maple syrup, honey and/ or sprinkle some cinnamon depending on what you like.
