It hits 11am and you're feeling peckish, but surely it's way too early for lunch yet? Or maybe you need an afternoon pick me up, something to get your teeth into and REALLY enjoy. As you may already be aware, its essential that the body is kept nourished and energised with healthy, nutritious foods throughout the day and when you're feeling hungry, it's ok to grab a snack..just as long as it's the right kind! Here at The Giving Tree we've come up with some simple, tasty and fun ideas to create the perfect snacks for every day, for all ages. Packed full of vitamins, minerals and fibre which helps to make you feel fuller for longer. You can either snack sweet or savoury with our range so there's something for everyone. Here are a few of our favourites.. Broccoli/Pumpkin crisps 1. Crudités - Dunk your veggie crisps in your favourite dipping condiment. We like a roasted red pepper hummus, low sugar/salt sweet chilli dipping sauce, low fat sour cream and chive dip, or homemade guacamole! Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 12.45.39 2. Swap your lunchtime packet of crisps for a bag of Giving Tree veggie crisps! They are MUCH tastier, crunchier and will fill you up a lot more. Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 16.20.05 3. If you're feeling adventurous, try melting some reduced fat cheddar cheese and try dunking some broccoli into the gooey, deliciousness for a delightful snack or canapé style serving suggestion.   4. Add our veggie crisps as a topping to your favourite salad, crackers, or canapés too! Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 12.51.54 Fruit Crisps 1.

At Giving Tree HQ, we believe when working out, it's important to make sure you have enough energy to achieve a high performance. Our bodies are like a car; they need fuelling up! So when it comes to picking out a snack to keep you going, this can sometimes be a downfall for many of us. d-300x300   It can be easy to slip up and go straight to the energy bars & drinks that will give you that quick and easy burst of energy. However, surprisingly, many of them have a lot of hidden, nasty ingredients in them that will end up making your workout a waste of time. SONY DSC At Giving Tree HQ we prefer to keep you snacking as healthy as possible! That means no more high-sugar and fatty snacks, and Hello Giving Tree snacks! FullSizeRender Our mission is to show work-out snacking can be guilt-free and still amazingly tasty. Also our snacks will keep up your health momentum and get you beach body ready in no time!
