Our Favorite 10 Snacks That Won't Ruin Your Handbag


Reaching out for mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks is something that happens a lot, to us, as it is surely what keeps you going on busy days. But, reaching into your bag, you're sometimes met with the contents of the pot of dip you bought that morning, or those cracker crumbs that get stuck on everything. Well, that has happened one too many times, so we thought it'd be better if we changed up our snacking game. Here are 10 healthy alternatives to keep you going!

1/ Nuts & Seeds

Keep a bag at hand so you can dip into it for quick bites towards 11.00AM. Add some M&M's to your nut selection to vary the flavours...flavours being key to enjoying nuts...obviously.


2/ Fruit Wedges

Getting your daily dose of fruit is super easy when you bring a couple of apples, bananas, or oranges in your bag.

No mess, no stress!


3/ Nut Butters on Toast

Make ahead of time and wrap up in foil. Variety is the spice of life so don't hesitate about changing up the butters, almond, hazelnut, macadamia, there's just too much choice!
