Snack-o-clock | Keeping Elevenses at Bay

I thought I would share with you my go-to-snacks whilst I am at work, so you are covered when that 11 o clock hunger strikes or 3 o clock slump when you feel like you need a bit of sugar (of course, I am not perfect and when there is chocolate or cake flying around the office I have a little bit). I would happily say these are relatively ‘healthy’ snacks, I mean better than a chocolate bar or crisps, that’s for sure. I have found that even through flares these snacks suit me, and I usually end up buying whatever is on offer as they can tend to be quite expensive. (I shop mainly at Waitrose, I know some of the foods below are only available at Waitrose, Ocado, Planet Organic, Whole Foods etc.) 

If you click on the links below it will take you to a page where the full nutritional information is available and ingredients. I will pull out the information that I tend to look for which is Carbohydrates of Which Sugars, Saturated Fat and Calories.

Go Ahead! Crispy Slices Apple and Sultana 

There are 3 slices in a pack and you get 5. So information is if you are eating all 3 slices – because I can’t not!

The Coconut Collaborative Little Choc Pots

Again you have to be a coconut lover for these little pots of joy, these ones I keep at home 🙂 after dinner I love something sweet, in fact I don’t feel satisfied until I have eaten something sweet – and these are a great mid week treat. Very rich and indulgent, but I feel better eating this than one of those melt in the middle Gu puddings (ahhhhh, they are delicious though!)
