Not only is this a healthier alternative but this will save you on cost too.
Our central London location means we are surrounded by all kinds of tasty temptations, to stay content and productive we have come up with these healthy alternatives that we would like to share with you.
1. ALMOND AND BLUEBERRY MIX
Almonds are packed full of good fats, fibre and vitamin E and can reduce hunger. Pair that with the vitamin C and B6 of the blueberries you have a super food mix that will lower your cholesterol. It’s simple and easy to put together in no time and the sweetness of the blueberries will kick that chocolate craving.
2. CHAI PUDDING
Chai seeds are one of the most nutritional foods on the planet. Providing fiber, protein, omega-3 fats (the good ones) and calcium, just to name a few! Here at our central London venue, we love trying new chai recipes and our favourite is a mix of berries with coconut milk, chai seeds and almonds. Make it in the evening and let it stand in the refrigerator overnight to set!
3. APPLE SLICES WITH PEANUT BUTTER
Peanuts can lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions and are loaded with antioxidants. Teamed with the antioxidants and flavonoids of an apple and you have got a tasty afternoon snack that could potentially save your life! Almond butter works just as good for those with a peanut allergy, needless to say at our central London venue we go through allot of peanut butter…
4. CRISPY KALE
This is for the savoury taste buds. Not only is this a healthier alternative but this will save you on cost too. Here are the 3 simple steps to the tastiest, crispiest kale:
Step 1. Wash kale thoroughly and dry with kitchen roll
Step 2. Cover a baking tray with kale (don’t worry about overlap as it shrinks down) spray low fat cooking oil then seasonal with salt, pepper and paprika.
Step 3. Place in a preheated oven at around 120 degrees/gas mark 3 and bake for 20 minutes. Rotate kale from inside the tray to out, throughout the time.
