We all fall into what I like to call ‘snack ruts’. You know those weeks and months when you get into the habit of eating exactly the same thing every morning and afternoon at snack time? And no matter how delicious those snacks are, it can get boring and leave you reaching for unhealthy foods.
But that will never happen again, starting from now.
I love savoury snacks just as much as the rest of them. I’m one of those people who love savoury as much as sweet and I’m of Italian heritage so I have some of THE BEST savoury snack ideas you will ever hear about.
Okay savoury lovers, here we go….
1. Cheese and olives.
I love to eat cheese and olives, especially those big green olives stuffed with fetta. What brilliant mind thought that up?
This is a baked egg dish that you can cut into individual serving sizes and it makes for a very filling and healthy snack.
3. Toast topped with The Laughing Cow cheese, tomato, avocado and hummus.
To make toast filling and healthy you have to skip the butter and jam (sometimes) and top it with all the good stuff. I love creamy Laughing Cow cheese, tomato, avocado and hummus combo but if that’s a bit too much for you, just choose one or two of these toppings, and spread them on the healthiest toasted bread you can find.
4. Salty crackers and hummus.
Hummus is going to make more than one appearance in this list because it is awesome. You can buy it or make it yourself and serve it with salty crackers or vegetable sticks.
5. Antipasti plate.
This is taking cheese and olives one step further. You might make a small plate of two kinds of cheese (I prefer brie and The Laughing Cow cheese), a couple of types of olives, some salami or deli meat and crunchy bread.
