7 Guilt-free and healthy snacks

These snacks are perfect for in between the meals, but are also a good alternative to eating junk in the evening.

It is often thought that one should not eat after 6 pm, but it is not true. Our bodies and habits are different. Some wake up at 6 in the morning and go to bed at 9-10 in the evening. Others, however, do not get their head on the pillow until the next day about 1-2 at night. So it is more important that you do not eat for 2-3 hours before going to bed.

What to do if you still want to grab something after dinner? First of all, it would be advisable to drink a glass of water to avoid the feeling of empty stomach due to lack of fluid. Many also eat because of emotions. So it's not wise to rush to your fridge nervously. Rather, I recommend that you consult a nutritionist to help you solve your nutritional problems.


So if you still want to snack on somthing, try these 7 healthy alternarives!


Salty snacks:


1. Juicy stems

Nutrient content per serving: 98 kcal Carbohydrate: 5 g Fat: 8 g Protein: 4 g

Recipe 1 portion


Ingredients:

1 stalk of celery stalk

1 teaspoon peanut butter

8-10 almonds


Directions:

Take one stem of celery. Grease peanut butter in the center of the stem. Then squeeze the almonds into the ribs of celery. It seems strange at first but is very juicy and refreshing. Also suitable for those who do not generally love celery.


2. Homemade hummus with celery, carrot and radish

Nutrition Information per serving: 138 kcal Carbohydrates 17 g Fat 6 g Protein 6 g

The recipe is divided into 4 portions


Ingredients:

1 jar of canned chickpeas

100-200ml of water

1 tablespoon yeast

1 tablespoon of tahini

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon maple syrup

1 teaspoon salt


Directions:

Put all ingredients except water in the food processor. Allow the machine to crush for a few minutes and then slowly pour water from the top opening in to the mixture. Observe consistency if you want thicker hummus, do not put too much water. After 5 minutes of pulsering, hummus is ready, serve with fresh vegetables.


3. Edamame beans

Nutrient content per 100 g: 130 kcal Carbohydrates: 12 g Fat: 4 g Protein: 11 g

Ingredients:

100 g edamame beans (soybeans)

with a pinch of salt


Directions:

Put 200 ml of water in a pot and bring to the boil. Take 1 and a half handfuls of beans and place them in boiling water. Boil for 3-5 minutes. When the pods start to open, turn off the stove. Rinse the beans under cold water through a sieve. Place on a plate and lightly sprinkle with salt. They also taste great without salt.

4. Homemade popcorn

Nutrient content per serving: 91 kcal Carbohydrates: 9.5 g Fat: 5 g Protein: 3 g

Recipe 2 servings


Ingredients:

25 g corn kernels

2 teaspoons nutritional yeast

1 teaspoon oil

with a pinch of salt


Directions:

Take a small pot. Put oil in the bottom of the pot. Turn the stove to maximum heat. When the oil is already hot, pour the corn kernels into the pan. Make sure that all the corns are separate. Place a lid on the pot. After waiting a few minutes, you should hear the cracking under the lid. If you notice a gap of more than half a minute or no more cracking, take the pot off the stove. Pour quickly into a separate bowl. Sprinkle with salt and nutritional yeast.


Sweet snacks:

5. Dates candy

Nutrient content per 1 date: 30 kcal Carbohydrates: 4 g Fat: 1 g Protein: 1 g

Ingredients:

5 dates (preferably fresh, but if not found suitable also dried)

half a teaspoon of peanut butter

5 almonds


Directions:

Cut a small furrow in the dateline. Put a little bit of peanut butter on it and then the almond. Wonderfully sweet and delicious. Ideal instead of candy. My favorite way is to make a delicious tea with two dates beside it.


6. Blueberry yogurt

Nutrient content per recipe: 100 kcal Carbohydrates: 17 g Fat: 3 g Protein: 4 g

Ingredients:

100 g vegetable yogurt

30 g frozen blueberries

1 tablespoon maple syrup


Directions:

Take a bowl and but soy yogurt in it, pour the frozen blueberries on top and then maple syrup. You can mix it up a bit. Cold blueberries in yogurt make the maple syrup a little solid. It makes you feel like eating blueberry-caramel ice cream.


7. Apple donuts

Nutrient content per apple: 67 kcal Carbohydrates: 11 g Fat: 3 g Protein: 2 g

Ingredients:

2 apples

2 teaspoons peanut butter

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

with a pinch of salt


Directions:

Clean the inside of apples, but leave the peel. Then cut the apples into slices and spread the peanut butter on top. Top with a pinch of salt and plenty of cinnamon.

My personal favorite is to reassemble these pieces into an apple shape and then eat it. Try it, pretty tasty.

A great way to quickly remove apple cores!
