Serve a colourful assortment of sliced vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers and cherry tomatoes with a side of homemade or store-bought hummus for dipping. With a protein-packed dip and deliciously crunchy vegetables, this is a great way to get your veggies in while also enjoying a satisfying snack.
Guacamole + Whole Wheat Chips
Packed with healthy fats and nutrients, make a homemade guacamole using ripe avocados, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and lime juice. Flavour it additionally with some garlic powder, a pinch of paprika and freshly ground black pepper and pair it with baked whole wheat tortilla chips for a tasty and nutritious snack.
Baked Chicken Wings
Instead of deep-frying wings, try baking or air-frying them for a healthier alternative. Marinate in a simple but flavoursome mixture of buttermilk, ginger-garlic paste, green chillies and some dry spice blends. Remove them from the marinade and air fry or bake until crispy, before tossing them in a dry rub or glazing them. Serve with a side of hot sauce and ranch dressing for dipping.
Greek Yoghurt Dip
Prepare a creamy Greek yogurt dip by mixing Greek yogurt with minced garlic, fresh dill, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Serve with whole wheat pita bread or vegetable sticks for a protein-rich snack. Add some caramelised onions, a scoop of chilli relish or some chopped up jalapenos for an added boost of flavour and textures.
What is a nail-biting match without a tub of popcorn! Air-popped popcorn is a whole grain snack that's low in calories. Season it with your choice of spices like nutritional yeast, paprika, or a sprinkle of parmesan cheese for added flavour. If you have a sweet tooth, toss your buttery popcorn in some cinnamon sugar and drizzle with some maple syrup for added goodness.
Stuffed Mini Peppers
Stuff mini bell peppers with a mixture of lean ground turkey or chicken, black beans, corn and diced tomatoes. Top with a bit of shredded cheese and bake until the peppers are tender and the filling is heated through. Enjoy them on their own or pair them with gluten free toast chips, air fried tortilla chips or serve as a meal with some brown rice on the side.
