Yogurt is and shall remain an important component in our snacking culture. And I’m not speaking of those over-sugared versions, but of proper plain natural yogurt. Make a craft out of it. You won’t believe how many different, almost artisan creations you can come up with. The ingredients of the version above are grapes, walnuts, some cinnamon and a few sprinkles of maple syrup. Love it! Up for more ideas? Have a look over here.
My afternoon snack is often a small handful of nuts and a piece of fruit. It’s delicious, satisfying and nutritious. Try raspberries and walnuts, banana and pecans, cashew and blueberries, almond and banana or any other combination you can think of. You can also spread peanut butter over sliced banana or almond butter over sliced apple. Try sprinkling it with cinnamon for extra flavour and it’s blood sugar stabilizing benefits!
I think you could definitely pass these as “New Years Eve”-ish!!

I don’t use nutritional yeast any more. It’s like $20 a bag full here in Tasmania (that’s IF you can find it in the first place). I made a tapioca based cheese and it sat in the fridge as Steve wasn’t keen on it but then in my “waste not want not” phase, I decided to throw it into a batch of bechamel and again, it was amazing. Sometimes it’s not the product that is wonderful but how you can use it that matters. We can’t get Follow your heart products here (heck, we don’t even have Earth Balance!) but I have found several interesting starch based egg replacement products on the net (recipes for how to make). The best vegan quiche we ever made was based on chickpea flour so I guess it really is horses for courses.
The Mediterranean diet isn't just one of the healthiest in the world, it's also one of the most delicious. Plus, you can't beat eating a handful of olives for less than 100 calories. "This snack is packed with good-for-you fats from both the olives and the olive oil that will help keep you satisfied. Plus, tomatoes offer fiber, as well as cancer-fighting lycopene," says Amy Gorin, M.S., R.D.N., owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in Jersey City, NJ. Slice the tomatoes in half, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with sea salt.
