Hot Quick Healthy Tikkis

Who doesn’t like tikkis for snacks? Well, we all do. How about a nourishing tikki which isn’t deep fried? It you want to learn the art of making non deep-fried tikkis, turn to recipes like Cauliflower and Oats and Moong Dal Tikki and Paneer Tikki. In all of these the use of carb loaded potatoes, bread and cornflour has been avoided. Instead ingredients like oats and paneer shown their magic here. These tikkis lend approx. only 25 to 45 calories per tikki. 2 to 3 of these tikkis at a time for a snack are enough to please your palate and make up for your nutrient requirement at snack time.

Healthy Snack using Veggies

Yes it is easy to snack only on veggies. Wait we are not suggesting boiled veggies here…. Different veggies can be cooked in different ways to create nourishing snacking options. One easy way is to grill the veggies. Try them.. they taste fabulous. You can combine crunchy veggies and grill them with sea salt and olive oil like Grilled Bell Pepper Carrot and Mushrooms. Alternatively choose any one veggie of your choice and play around with different dressings to pep them up. If you are a brinjal lover, try Grilled Sesame Eggplant and if you like sweet potato, then you should definitely go in for Grilled Sweet Potato which has a lemon juice and honey dressing.

These veggies have an advantage of adding on vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to your snacks without adding too many calories and fat. This is the trick to go healthy. Not many carbs but plenty of antioxidants in to reduce inflammation in the body. 

Quick Dry Healthy Snacks 

Dry snacks turn out to be handy when you are at work or travelling or when you have not much time to cook a healthy snack. Avoid that frying and you are all set to enjoy your healthy snack. Choose ingredients too that give you protein rather than refined carbs. And to add on to all this if you can make these snacks in a few minutes, it is an added bonus. 

As a dry jar snack you can try Palak Methi Puris. These are baked versions of the fried puri, with yet the same flavours and taste. Do try them! Roasted Makhanas is another jar snack which can be made quickly. And once you have roasted them, you can add spices or masalas of your choice like oregano, peri-peri masala, dried mixed herbs and so on…

You can also treat yourself with something sweet like Healthy Oats Vegan Granola Bars or Date and Nut Coconut Cocoa Balls which lend as less as 69 calories per ball.
