Healthy Snack Ideas to Help You Lose Weight.

Sometimes, the cravings can get real. This is why preparation is so important!

Sometimes, all you need is a cute little date ball or a healthy chocolate avocado pudding – but you land up devouring an entire bag of flings, half a slab of Cadbury Top Deck and a can of coke.

We have all been there… but as the discoveries of the dangers of sugar and gluten on the brain increase – so too does the list of delicious and healthy alternatives!

I decided to make a video on my top 6 snacks that I enjoy making at home that help me avoid (or at least try to…) sugary sweets and unhealthy snacks.
