Hello my lovely babble juicers,

I know it has been a few days since I have posted anything. I have been down with a very bad cold again and I have spent quite some time in bed. But I am so glad that I am feeling so much better now.

For some reason, when I am ill, I feel so hungry that I could eat anything. But I especially crave for fried and salty snacks. Not a good combination. So I have been finding ways that I can snack but still make some healthy choices. But you know, I am not an extremist so the odd potato chip or should I confess, bag of chips keeps me sane.

So here are some options for some healthy snacking:

  1. A large apple is great to carry around to work or college to munch in between. I like eating bananas too, but sometimes they can get quite squishy in warmer weather. So I usually eat bananas when I am at home.
  2. Carrot, cucumber and beet root sticks. I love having these, probably my favourite. It keeps you full for a long time, high in fibre and really good for you.
  3. Add some chia seeds to your juice or green herbal tea. I do this a lot, especially before I go out. Chia seeds are a great source of fibre and energy and fills you up. It’s called sabja in hindi and is easily available in India in local grocery stores.
  4. Always keep some dry fruits with you in a ziplock. A like a mix of almonds, raisins and seeds. It doesn’t take any space at all. You can just pop it in your handbag.
  5. Make a good salad of your own with some home made dressing with some olive oil and herbs. It’s so much fun to make it your own. I try my best to avoid anything in a jar, I can’t tell what’s in it.

You know you can get some amazing recipes all over the internet on healthy snacks you can just whip up in a jiffy. So just search for them, you might find something you really like and is also super easy. So you see healthy and snacking can go together with a bit of will power and some DIYs.

So how do you snack to keep hunger at bay?

Any suggestions?
