Stock up on frozen fruit

Bring a little sunshine to your winter: Stash frozen summer fruits, such as berries, pineapple and mango, in the freezer for an instant snack. Love smoothies? Blitz frozen fruit in a blender with skim milk and a dollop of low-fat yoghurt. You can also buy in-season fruit in bulk and freeze it in snap-lock bags or airtight containers.

Go green!

If you suspect your main meals are lacking in vegies, drink some of your day’s veg as an energising smoothie! Whiz any combo of cucumber, celery, baby spinach or kale, ginger, mint, lemon juice and coconut water - they’re all filled with so many vitamins and minerals, your body will want to jump for joy.

Put your portions in proportion

Can’t stop munching ’til the packet’s empty? Portion control could be a problem. Buy snack packs, small tubs of yoghurt or pieces of fresh fruit. Budget tip: Stock up on mini plastic containers and divide your bulk-buy items into single serves to store or take to work.

Pop your own

Don’t drown your popcorn in butter and salt - the healthiest popcorn is full of hot air! If you don’t have a popcorn maker, simply place % cup of popping kernels in a brown paper bag, fold the edges to seal and microwave it on high for two minutes, or until most of the kernels have popped. Add a sprinkling of curry powder or Mexican seasoning, or just enjoy it au naturel!

Plan your snack attack

If stress or boredom at work finds you at the biscuit jar come 3pm (irrespective of your appetite!), distract yourself with a brisk walk or a cup of herbal tea.

Cherish your choc

Chocolate cravings can strike at any time, particularly in the afternoon and after dinner. Again, portion control is key, as three squares have about the same number of kilojoules as an apple does. So eat it slowly and mindfully – savour every melting mouthful!

Slim your coffee run

If your midmorning snack is a large milky coffee, you could be consuming more fat and kilojoules than you think. Opt for skim milk and switch to a sugar substitute or forgo sugar altogether. If your morning coffee run isn’t complete without a sweet bite, share a slice of raisin toast or a small fruit scone with a friend.

Toast your health at happy hour

Like to kick off the weekend with a few Friday-night drinks? Swap your cocktail for a mocktail, and your spirits for a spritzer. The less alcohol in your glass, the more you’ll cut sugar and kilojoules. And you can always sip sparkling water with a wedge of lemon or lime. Cheers!
