As a self confessed foodie, and a big time snacker I’ve complied a list of my favourite snacks that you don’t need to feel guilty about indulging in! As a general rule, if you’re trying to shed off some extra pounds or if you’re looking to shape up your diet, don’t get bored!
Boredom leads to excessive snacking, and for most of us its the nature of our snacking habits that doesn’t help our diet, rather than the content of our meals. It’s extremely important to watch what we’re choosing to snack on as it’s is your opportunity to fuel your body between meals.
Here are 5 of my favourite superfood treats:
SuperFood Slushy, Live Wheatgrass
These delicious slushy ice lollies, contains 50ml of juiced pomegranate seeds, raspberries, red grapes, coconut water and fresh LiveWheatgrass Juice. A super refreshing alternative to sugar and calories filled ice lollies, these slushies contain100% pure ingredients! Enjoy this healthy alternative on a hot summers day without feeling guilty!
Coconut Water, Tiana
Organic certified and 100% pure. Nothing added, nothing taken away! A refreshing feel good snack that both hydrates and beats the sugar cravings. I’m a big fan of Tiana’s coconut water, knowing that it has no excess sugars or added nasties – perfectly healthy and extremely delicious.
Zoot Bars, Zoot Foods
Available in a large variety of natural flavours from Choc ‘n’ Orange, Banana Choc Chip, Cashew Supreme and Berry Burst, the Zootfoods mission is to ensure that safe snacking is practised, whilst controling your intake of fats, sugar and calories.

Make your own Raw Chocolate, CHOC Chick
Delicious guilt free raw chocolate! The perfect treat. In its raw state, chocolate has more than 300 nutritional compounds and is one of the richest sources of antioxidants of any food on the planet! Who knew chocolate could lower blood pressure, improve circulation, and promote cardiovascular function? The joys of chocolate without the guilt!
