Cutting down on refined sugar is one of the best things you can do to help stabilise hunger pangs and improve your diet. However, people often become stuck when it comes to snacking between meals. Here are a couple of suggestions to stop you reaching for the biscuit cupboard and aim for a low sugar diet!

Vegetable Sticks and Hummus

You really can’t beat vegetable sticks with some delicious hummus. Hummus is simply made from chickpeas, tahini, olive oil and some seasonings, making it a brilliant low sugar dip. This is a great snack to keep you fuller for longer too.

Greek Yoghurt with Nuts

No fruit with your yoghurt? I know what you’re thinking. But honestly, having some yoghurt with nuts or a sprinkling of seeds is a great low sugar snack.

Celery Sticks with Peanut Butter

Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! Celery is pretty much low in everything and proper peanut butter does not contain any added sugar therefore making this an excellent low sugar snack. Honestly, it does taste good!

Boiled Eggs and Spinach

The simplest of snacks – simply boil a couple of eggs and have some spinach with them! It is a great source of healthy fats, protein and has a low sugar content. This snack is great for on the go or as part of a pack-up for work.

Whole Nuts

A handful of whole nuts will satisfy you quickly and keep you full for longer. Plenty of healthy fats in there to give you energy and keep you going.

Veggies with Cottage Cheese

The same as with hummus, chop up some veggie sticks and dip them in cottage cheese. Add some chives to the cottage cheese for some extra flavour.

Rice Cakes with Cream Cheese

Low calorie rice cakes with low fat cheese – an ideal snack. The protein from the cheese will keep you full and give you energy to continue with your day, despite it being a low sugar snack!
