Welcome fellow bloggers (- of course people who don’t write their own blogs are equally as welcome). It’s been a while since I published a post themed around food, which doesn’t make sense as I frequently (- perhaps a little too frequently) post photos of food on my Instagram account.
Today, I thought I’d recommend some Vegetarian snacks. Some are shop brought & some require partial home preparation (- or staff room preparation if that’s where you are. Just please prepare your snacks in an appropriate place. Not in public areas; I feel like I needed to mention that as these days there are some strange people out there.).
I am not a Vegetarian nor a Vegan, however I’m not much of a ‘meat eater’. I’d prefer simple carrot sticks with sour cream & chive dip any day, rather than a bland ham sandwich.
Here are 4 tasty snacks; all of which are suitable for vegetarians:
‘Nakd’ Salted caramel fruit & nut nibbles: These don’t exactly look appetizing as they’re basically tiny, brown, bite-sized pieces of compacted wholefoods. However, they are a yummy hybrid of a sweet and salty snack. Additionally they’re wheat, dairy and gluten free as well as 100% Vegan & ‘1 of your 5 a day’. Eat it on it’s own or add them to granola/muesli.
Banana & peanut butter on unflavoured, unsalted rice cakes: A filling snack that provides plenty of energy due to it’s good levels of potassium & protein, is inexpensive, quick & easy to prepare.
Mozzarella & sliced tomatoes on bruschetta/baguette: This is a cheese and tomato combination on another level. These two ingredients taste more delicious when placed on Italian or French breads then toasted underneath a grill; sprinkle a little salt and pepper & fresh basil leaves if you have some to hand. Voilà, a warm snack with fresh ingredients.
Kellogg’s Elevenses Nutri-Grain breakfast bakes: The raisin ones are particularly good. It’s like eating a soft, spiced sponge cake; which is perfect if you are on a diet because they are low calorie & not actually a cake. Yay!
