3 Low Sugar Snacks to Power You Through Your Day

We all know that when hunger hits, reaching for a bar of candy is the easiest thing to do. However, most of us also know that high-sugar snacks don’t keep us full for very long, leading to us reaching for yet more snacks later on. You can break this cycle and choose snacks that will power you through your studying by seeking out foods which are high in protein, fiber and healthy fats. Check out these recommendations for low-sugar snacks below.

Yogurt Bowl

Natural or Greek style yogurt is high in protein and naturally low in sugar. Top it with some berries, a few nuts and maybe even some cacao nibs to create a healthy and sustaining snack which should keep you full until your next meal.

Marinated Tofu

Think tofu is boring and plain? Maybe you just need to marinate it! Whip up a quick marinade by mixing a teaspoon each of soya sauce, oyster sauce, red wine vinegar and honey. Mix these ingredients together well, then drizzle over some cubed firm tofu. Leave the marinade to work its magic for an hour or so, and then gently fry the tofu in a small amount of oil. You can enjoy this straight from the pan, or allow it to cool and pack it in a container for an on-the-go snack.

Dark Nut Chocolate

If you must reach for a sweet treat, make it some dark, nut-enriched chocolate. A bar of 60% cocoa chocolate with some whole hazelnuts, almonds or pistachios will deliver a dose of healthy fats, some proteins and some powerful anti-oxidants. While the chocolate does contain sugar, the other ingredients will help to ensure that this is absorbed a little more slowly than some other chocolate would be.
