High kilojoule foods often have too much salt and sugar in them. I find it quite challenging looking for healthy meals from my low calorie recipes. I’m looking for tasty foods not filled with the bad stuff, and just love light foods that keep hunger at bay. I have noticed that a lot of people are cautious about the calorie count when it comes to main meals of the day, but they tend to overlook the calories when it comes to snacking. Give me a fresh mango cut into slices and with Greek yoghurt and you won’t have to worry about this delightful snack’s sweeteners and additives.
One of my favourite low calorie recipes when it comes to snacking is sweet potato quinoa cakes. I make these on a Sunday evening and then nibble on them through the week. They’re full of healthy ingredients such as olive oil, fresh chives, eggs and sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are readily available and delicious and are high in vitamin B6 too and you can eat them roasted, baked, steamed or grilled or just eat them on top of some leafy salad.
