Keto Bar (Ask Leisa if interested)
High protein, low carbohydrate bar – helps maintain energy levels and contains a variety of luscious vitamins and minerals. It’s great for people who are conscious about putting on weight.
Carrot & celery sticks with hummus or avocado

Salmon / tuna on a rice cake with avocado and spinach leaves
Tinned salmon or tuna with 1-2 rice cakes, add a small amount of avocado and spinach leaves..yum!
Chicken & salad rice paper rolls
Chop roasted chicken into small pieces along with carrot, spinach, capsicum, avocado and rice noodles (cooked). Put small amount into each piece of paper and roll. Keep refrigerated. Great for a meal or snack.
Apples, pears, kiwi fruit, cherries, grapefruit etc. See Low GI food table on previous blog for more fruit suggestions.
Wisk eggs (depends on how many you want to make) with small amount of milk and add vegetables of choice – capsicum, carrot, zucchini, onion & small amount of cheese. Spoon ingredients into muffin tins and bake in the oven until cooked.
