Clean Summer Snack Ideas

I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of restricting myself when I’m feeling hungry or craving something. In fact, studies suggest that the “all-or-nothing” diet is actually not as healthy as you may think: if you deprive yourself of a food entirely, there’s a greater chance that you’ll make unhealthy choices or dive into a complete binge later on.

REMEMBER - it’s all about moderation.

That’s why, I always keep a list of my favourite clean snacks that I can visit whenever I’m craving something. Whether you’re craving something sweet or savoury - this list has it all. I hope you’re able to use this list as  inspiration to look BEYOND your cravings and choose the foods will truly NOURISH your body instead of grabbing the easiest thing available!
