The silly season is officially done and dusted!
Even though you might still feel full to the brim on all that Christmas food, there is still the strange craving to reach into the pantry and grab a block of chocolate, or to finish of the leftovers… We want to help you curb those cravings with some healthy snack ideas.
Lucky for you, we have some delicious, healthy, easy, and sustainable recipes from Candy Luk AKA @nourishandflourishsyd!
We have teamed up with the amazing Candy, a full time radiographer from Sydney, who loves to get creative in the kitchen and create not-so ordinary recipes that are nourishing and delicious. Candy loves cooking and baking food in the kitchen from leftovers, really honing in on the waste-free and low-waste lifestyle that we love… she also uses SUSTOMi products for a lot of her cooking! These are great healthy snacks for kids (or yourself) and they aren’t just for post-Christmas feeding, save these delicious and healthy recipes for all year round: we suggest for breakfasts on the go, pre or post workout for that energy boost
Here are some of her top healthy snacks to get you through the holidays.
Healthy Home Made Rice Crackers Made from Leftovers
Perfect for using up left over rice after curries and dinner!
1/2 cup leftover rice
1/2 cup Dukkah or hemp seeds
1/4 vegan Parmesan or crushed nuts
3 tbsp water as needed
Mix ingredients with hands or food processor, flatten in between two SUSTOMi baking sheets, bake in oven at 140°C for 20 minutes or until golden brown on both sides.
Hot tip: Add roasted hemp for a crunchy texture + extra healthy fats and fibre! Season with Hemp Parmesan for a healthy hearty flavour boost. Serve with Vegan Goats Cheese for extra punch!
SALTED CARAMEL PROTEIN BARS for an Energy Boost
Sugar-free, protein-packed snacks perfect to fuel you up when you need an extra boost or post workout!
3/4 cup salted caramel protein (or almond meal with extra liquid sweetener if you don’t have protein powder)
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp Argan oil
Choc layer: + 1 tbsp Gut Replenish
Add-in: Vitamin Boost (cranberries & hazelnuts)
Mix ingredients together, press into a silicone mould and freeze for 1 hour. I divided the dough into two and add gut powder (choc flavoured & made with prebiotics & herbs that help support gut health!) as a chocolate layer. Topped with a mix of dried cranberries & hazelnuts for a vitamin boost.
Easy On the Go Breakfast Apple Protein Muffins
These bite-sized, golden sweet, apple protein muffins are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast or pre/ post-workout!
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1/4 cup vanilla protein
1/3 cup monk fruit sweetener
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Clarity & Mood spice
1/3 cup soy milk + 1 tbsp lemon juice + 3 tbsp MCT coconut oil
Add-in: Fruit & Nuts + 1/2 cup finely diced apple
Method: mix wet to dry ingredients, fold in diced apples and add-ins. Bake in mini silicon muffin mould at preheated oven at 170C for 20mins.
Remember to take your Recycled Mesh Produce Bag to the supermarket when purchasing your apples, and keep them stored in the pantry or the fridge in the bag for better organisation. Store the left over muffins in a container with a Beeswax Wrap cover to keep food fresh longer, or in a Silicone Food Pouch for an even longer shelf life... snacks for holidays! Yay!
