Our nutritionist Jess shares her top 5 favorite graze snacks!
stock up on beet chips
Anything with chickpeas is a winner for me! I love the slight kick that these jalapeño chickpeas have and love how they are coupled with crunchy beet chips and nutrient filled sunflower seeds. The snack as a whole gives you a good source of fiber, protein, vitamin E, manganese and copper but most importantly it tastes good too!
stock up on nuts
I know they’re not the most glamorous of all the snacks in the range but I have a soft spot for this combination! Sometimes you just want some plain nuts without the frills. I love nuts because I know they are going to do my body a whole load of good. This snack has raw and blanched almonds, roasted hazelnuts and walnuts for a delicious source of fiber, protein, vitamins E, B5 and minerals like manganese, copper, magnesium and phosphorus!
The chili lime cashews in this snack give the blend of almonds and peanuts a nice sprucing up. I’m always looking for ways to ensure I’ve got protein in with my snacks, so punchy protein nuts are always one of my reliable go-to graze snacks.
stock up on bars
These portable finger-like bars include three different seeds (sesame, pumpkin and sunflower) which means it’s a good source of minerals from magnesium, copper, selenium and manganese as well as vitamin E, fiber and protein! Plus, they’re naturally sweet from the dates but I love how the most abundant ingredient are seeds.
try our cocoa & orange bars
I love anything that promotes pausing for a cup of tea and some downtime during the day. I love enjoying these bites as a treat when I fancy an indulgent sugar kick. The inclusion of almond butter, cacao, orange zest and dates creates a great flavor and the soy crispies give the snack a great protein lift!
