Popcorn

Video Recipe: Kid Friendly Salted Honey Popcorn

The right kind of popcorn can make an excellent healthy snack as it is high in fibre and naturally low in fat and salt. The best way to ensure you’re getting all the goodness (without the extra fat/sugar/calories)? Buy the plain kernels and pop them yourself, either in the microwave in a brown paper bag, or on the stove top. You can add a little bit of salt and olive oil or even sweet spices like cinnamon, for a tasty but low calorie snack.

Try the Salted Honey Popcorn from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Yogurt

The Best Healthy Treats For Late Night Snacking

Yogurt makes a fantastic dessert.  High in protein and calcium and low in fat and sugar (when you choose the natural, unsweetened varieties). To make it a little more treat-like, you can add in fruits like berries and a little pure maple syrup or honey or a spoon of homemade granola or muesli. Yum!

Chia puddings

Vanilla-Chia-Pudding

Chia seeds are a great source of protein, fibre and Omega 3 fatty acids. You can have these little beauties and enjoy a delicious dessert, without the guilt. Try the Vanilla Chia Pudding from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Chocolate cake
