Holiday snack preparation


We are off to the ski slopes tomorrow YAY!! While I absolutely  love spending the day on the slopes, unfortunately their is little in the way of anything with a low GI content or some good protein for our bodies to keep up with the energy demands of the action packed day. Add to that gluten, lactose and sugar sensitivity, I really am only left with the not so fresh, additive packed, factory prepared salads.  No thank you!

Lots of wholesome low GI, protein snacks is the key to a great day.  Filling your body with refined sugars, simple carbohydrates and bad fats is only going to make you feel tired, sluggish and cause you extreme ups and downs in your blood sugar levels. I know I would rather be enjoying delicious wholesome treats and snacks and feeling fabulous than consuming far too overly priced ‘junk’ food.

So what I prepared for my trip?

Breakfast being the most important meal of the day I needed something that will be sustainable in my stomach, easily digestible, contained protein and required little preparation in the mornings.

Pre made Quinoa Porridge!

This included quinoa flakes, chia seeds, LSA, hemp seeds, and a small amount of bee pollen. In the morning all I have to do is add water/almond milk, heat and serve with a few strawberries on top- too easy!

– Pre made protein bars

– Trail mix in zip lock bags

– Cocao nut bliss balls

– An assortment of teas (just ask for a cup of boiling water)

– Roasted packaged chickpeas

– Carob buckwheat biscuits packaged

and I am set for a day on the slopes!
