There are two keys to healthy snacking. One is being prepared, and the other is to choose foods with a combination of complex carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats and plenty of fibre.
Enter: bliss balls.
They only take 15 minutes to prepare, are filled with energy-boosting ingredients and will keep you satiated until your next meal. Another bonus is that you can easily make them at the beginning of the week and keep in a sealed container in the fridge for a couple of days, or even store them in the freezer.
This strawberry and coconut bliss ball recipe ticks all the right boxes, and thanks to the addition of Wanderlust Prebiotic Gut Goodness provides a natural source of resistant starch and fibre to help keep your gut happy by maintaining bowel regularity.
