Did you know?
Edamame beans are another name for soya beans.
These little green beans are packed full of B-vitamins which help to break down carbs into glucose to fuel the body, so they are an ideal snack or great side option to help fight tiredness.
Oatcakes with apple
Peanut butter (unsalted) with slices of apple
No preparation necessary, just combine ingredients and enjoy.
This snack is very balanced and will give you long lasting energy. It has good fats, protein and carbs + the added bonus of vitamins from the apple.
Just remember, peanut butter has a lot of calories so be sure to stick to just a few oatcakes for snacks - otherwise a snack easily turns into full blown lunch.
