If you’re going to be eating your next meal in two or three hours, it’s probably wise to hang on without snacking in order to avoid sugar level spikes – which can lead to wanting more food as well as excess calories.

Experts say the best way to control hunger between meals, is by snacking on combined foods – that means something containing a balance of protein, quality carbs and a little good fat. This explains why, often, a piece of fruit on its own isn’t enough to satisfy our hunger.

Try these balanced snack ideas:

  • Natural yogurt with seeds and berries
  • An apple spread with almond butter
  • Cucumber sticks with homemade hummus
  • Raw carrot with guacamole
  • Or check out the recipe for our chocolate avocado mousse
