Making healthy snacks

  1. So what are good healthy snacks to make? Below we list ten options - some can be made very quickly, some with a little more preparation time. Choose what you like and what is convenient for you!

  1. Hüttenkäse is very high in protein, and thanks to its mild flavor it goes with everything. Eat it with forest fruits, or with apple and lots of cinnamon!

  1. Vegetables are also a great snack thanks to their fiber. Dip cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots and celery in, for example, hummus, a quick yogurt dip or tzatziki.

  1. Making your own nut mix is ​​very easy, and you can vary endlessly. Take unsalted and unroasted nuts and add some dried fruit of your choice - and done!

  1. Fresh soybeans are very rich in protein and fiber. You don't have to do anything for it, in many supermarkets they are now simply sold ready-made.

  1. Whole grains are very rich in fiber. Then add high-protein spreads - a boiled egg, lean meats, hummus, and so on - and you're done! Chicken wraps also fall into this category!

  1. You have to be careful with this, because it contains a lot of calories and some sugar. But very dark chocolate is also packed with healthy substances and is therefore allowed every now and then.

  1. Fancy some healthy biscuits? Make them on the basis of oatmeal, which contains a lot more fiber than flour. Store airtight or freeze it, then you can go ahead for a while. [! 191941 => 1140 = 21!] Banana bread is basically just cake, but a lot healthier. When freezing, make sure you do it per slice, otherwise you will never get a knife through it again.

  1. If you fancy ice cream, but not sugar, frozen yogurt is perfect. Again, there are endless variations possible with fruit and other seasonings.
