Super Quick Sweet Afternoon Snacks

We all love a good snack right?

In my experience, if I have had a lunch with a high glycemic index then I know I will get that guaranteed 'afternoon slump' where I crave something sweet.


I became aware of the GI diet many many years ago when a teacher told me that she used it to lose a few pounds before she went on holiday. After doing some research, I learnt that my diet was rather high GI at the time and decided to change it to a lower GI to keep me 'fuller for longer'. Times have changed now and so has my diet... however, I still have it in the back of my mind when I choose food.


Anyhoo... long story short, I don't often have the 'slump' as often anymore, but if I do, these are my go to sweet snacks.


HANDFUL OF FROZEN GRAPES

In this heatwave this has been my saviour. I buy a bunch of grapes from M&S (as these are always my fav!) wash them and pop them in a box in the freezer. Firstly, I can't tell you how cooling they are, but secondly how tasty they are. They fill a little hole when I need a sweet snack and I must admit I've been having a handful a day over the last couple of months.
