Hummus is a staple item in of almost everyone food shopping trolley each week. And so it should be, hummus is a great high protein and high fat snack option that you can eat with rice cakes, sliced vegetable sticks, add to wraps or even mix into salads.
Making your own popcorn at home is actually very easy and much healthier than buying the microwave popcorn from the shops. Cook up a big pot of homemade popcorn and cover it with your favourite flavour toppings. Perfect for an afternoon snack for the kids or share it with your friends while watching your favourite Netflix series.
If you are a mum with young kids, I made this recipe especially for you! I get loads of requests to create a lunch box friendly snack that kids will enjoy and that doesn't contain nuts. While we only really need to worry about peanuts when it comes to allergies, a lot of schools now have a no nuts policy which includes almonds etc. This recipe is dairy-free, refined sugar-free and easy to make.
I have two weaknesses. Chocolate and nibble platters. There is just something about a good platter that I just love which is why I am super excited to be teaming up with Countdown to create this Healthy Summer Platter. Platters don't always have to be just crackers, cheese and store bought dips. While this does sound tasty, I think it is great to include a variety of vegetables and fruit on your platter to make it not only healthy but delicious and look incredible too.
