Key stress-busting snacks

27 Mar 2020, 10:15AM

In times of high stress, we tend to pay less attention to what we’re eating, and can fall into the trap of convenience foods which are often lacking in key nutrients. The food we eat can be our most powerful ally in health, or our biggest downfall. Here are a couple of super-easy, quick-to-make snacks, rich in key stress-busting nutrients.



Roasted Chickpeas

A lot of retailers sell roast chickpeas now, but they are super simple to make yourself. Just drain the chickpeas, leave them to dry, coat in whatever spices you want, and roast.





Avocado Mousse

A delicious dessert alternative, avocado mousse takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. Just put avocado, maple syrup and cacao in a blender, whizz it up and refrigerate to set.





Hard boiled eggs

Hard boiled eggs are under-rated as a nutritious, easy snack. They take minutes to prepare, and are easy to transport. You can even leave the shells on until you’re ready to eat. Season with salt and pepper, and they’re good to go.




Nut mix

Making your own nut mix is far cheaper than buying a pre-made one, and couldn’t be any easier to prepare. Simply throw your nuts (we like cashews, almonds, pistachios and macadamias) together and bag it up.
