I'm loving some of the quick and easy ideas that my friends tell me about when it comes to healthy snacking.
One such idea is vege muffins.
Such a simple idea and one to have for a snack on the run that combines protein, fibre and carbohydrates.
Into muffin tins, cut up your choice of veges to fill each individual tin by about 2/3. Use veges such as broccoli, cauliflower, courgettes/zucchinis, onions, tomatoes, corn, peas, baked sweet potato, spinach, kale, peppers/bell peppers, asparagus, beans. You can also add tofu for added protein, or some fetta cheese.
Once you are happy with the combinations, beat up eggs to pour over the top of the veges. Bake in a moderate oven for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
Easy snacks to keep in the fridge for the week ahead. Cuts down on your trips to the vending machines!
