snack time!

1. An organic and yummy protein shake with a small handful (6-10) of mixed nuts or any nuts except peanuts, which are a legume and therefore less ideal.

2. Cold protein pancakes! I love making these as they are SO yummy but also guilt free! Use a stick blender to mix 2 eggs, 1 scoop of chocolate or any flavour you like protein powder, a tsp cinnamon and a tablespoon ground flax or shredded coconut. Cook in well heated coconut oil and enjoy for breaky or cold as a snack.

3. Cabbage or lettuce sushi. Super easy! Simply roll smoked salmon up in a big green leaf. You can pre-make these and bring with you wrapped in foil or in a Pyrex container.

4. Boiled eggs with a spoon or two of nut butter. Romantic and fancy? No. Simple and effective and tasty? Yes. Pre-boil the night before to make it easy. Pre-peel if that helps!

5. Cold meat patties. Here’s my recipe for ‘roo burgers. I like doing turkey as well, or half veal/half pork:

  • 500 grams of kangaroo mince (Safeway, or the butcher)
  • 50 grams of sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 brown onion
  • Few sprigs of basil
  • 50 grams of organic tomato paste
  • Real salt, and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 30 grams of gluten-free meal, such as ground millet. Quinoa would also be fine
  • Coconut oil

Peel and chop first onion into little squares. Chop the second onion into rings, and set it aside in a bowl. Chop your basil and sun-dried tomatos into smallish pieces.

Using your hands, mix all of the first batch of ingredients except the coconut oil. Form the mixture into patties, and fry for a good 3-4 minutes each side (in hot coconut oil), over a medium to hot heat.

6. Chia pudding. One of my favourites when at home although you can also bring out with you in Pyrex. Simply mix a tablespoon chia seeds with 1/2-3/4 cup full fat Greek yoghurt. You can add a tsp of raw cacao. Leave to set in fridge for 20-60 minutes before eating.

7. Roast chicken with 1/2 a fine-sliced apple and a chopped cucumber. All easily grabbable (yes it’s a word!) from the supermarket. No excuses 🙂

8. Cold leftover meat or sausages with a handful baby spinach/olives/tomatoes. Or whatever else you have handy at home. Bring it in a small Pyrex. The mini meal is the most effective snack for cravings and fat loss.

9. Split cafe meals. Meaning, if you go out to breaky or lunch ask for a take-away container and save half for later. Simple!

10. The Snack Pack. I make a snack pack for my 2-year old and one for myself each time we head out. It is basically a medium Pyrex with a bunch of any of the above things in it. For snacking! Some other things I often put in are cold haloumi, chopped raw veg, olives, a piece of dark chocolate. But always some protein either leftover meat or protein pancakes cold.
