Some Favorite Healthy Snacks

Although it seems like a distant memory now with the foggy miserably rain, only a week ago it was gorgeous and sunny weather with lots of sun and high temperatures. I was experimenting with some new things to drink or to snack on and more often than not I accidentally created stuff like this. Hope you like!

  • Mint-Lime-Lemon-ade (I LOVE THIS): Pitcher full of water, icecubes, juice of one lime, juice of one lemon and a few slices of both in the pitcher as well as some mint leafs. Super refreshing.
  • Coconut Water Ice With A Twist: Freeze a 500 ml carton of coconut water overnight and throw it in your blender the next day with the juice of a pomegranate and some blueberries (or other berries of choice). Very nice and light dessert.
  • Fresh Pear Yoghurt: Put a couple of pears in the freezer or fridge for a couple of hours, peel them and then blend them with a little yoghurt and some lime juice. As you can probably see by now, I’m very into cold things.
  • Sweet Green Salad: Make a salad with cucumber slices, sprouts, sugar snaps and make salad dressing with mint, lemon and olive oil.
  • Small Broccoli Dish: For a heartier snack you can steam some broccoli and eat it with walnuts, red onion and a sprinkle of pepper and nut meg.

(Psssh: I’m featured in Magazijn‘s latest issue: an interview on page 8 and a column on page 33: something about a Discipline Stick & Will Power For The Win. The rest of the magazine is gorgeous too and features lots of interesting content. Check it out and let me know what you think!)

  1. Love all these tips, except the first one: i DETEST mint…I’m actually a bit scared of it, believe it or not..If anyone in the vicinity is having minttea, I’ll run for the hills. I kid you not 🙂

    1. REALLY? I can’t even imagine, I love mint! If I’ll ever meet you, I’ll order a different tea then. 😉

    1. Gewoon in Ekoplaza & andere bio supermarkten? Ik haal die van mij ook vaak bij mijn yoga studio, daar hebben ze ze ook! Merk is DR Martinio’s ofzo geloof ik, superlekker (maar wel duur, 3 euro voor een pakje)

  2. oww, in parijs heb ik een paar keer een “virgin”drankje besteld, zonder alcohol. met munt, lemon, ijsblokjes, en gewoon water. zo simpel,maar heerlijk!
