En Route - Snacks That Got Us Lookin' Like A Snack

Snacks That Got Us Lookin’ Like A Snack

Ditch those carrot sticks, darling

Everything you do is documented on the gram these days, vanity is a monster most of us cannot hide from, so lookin’ like a snack is obligatory. 

Sure, you need to do some squats for a juicy booty and snack on the ol’ raw nuts and carrot sticks to feel even remotely like JLo. But what do you do when you can’t curb the craving for a bag of fun-sized Snickers bars?

Have you considered a snack alternative that has benefits for your skin and isn’t a cucumber? 

Check out our favourite full-size, healthy snack alternatives that won’t leave you craving the real thing … and no it’s not celery and hummus.

Chocolate Chickpeas $5.30 pack of 5

This healthy alternative to maltesers is crunchy, chocolatey, less than 100 calories per serving and would you believe they’re also vegan!

Chickpeas are a great source of protein that help to improve digestion, keep blood sugar levels stable and also aids in weight management.

We Rate It: 9/10

Clif Bar White Chocolate Macadamia Nut $3.00 each 

If you love a White Chocolate Macadamia cookie from Subway, then this is definitely the healthier alternative for you. Made from organic rolled oats and soy protein, not only will this be way more satisfying but our bodies will also thank us later.

Clif Bar Chocolate Chip $3.00 each 

Honestly not a favourite, it tastes like Uncle Toby’s Chocolate Chip muesli bars, just not as sweet and a little powdery after taste.

We Rate It: 4/10

We know, these energy bars aren’t THE healthiest thing on the market, but it’s a lot healthier than a sugary cookie.

Collagen Bar Sampler $22.00 pack of 4

A bar that feels like a shortbread cookie, looks like a shortbread cookie, tastes like a shortbread cookie, but isn’t a shortbread cookie! It’s mindblowing MAGIC!!

Naturally, we tried all four flavours, Cashew Shortbread, Hazelnut Brownie, Lemon Tart and Peanut Butter. Our favourites would have to be the Hazelnut Brownie and Lemon Tart.

Each bar has 15gm of protein, less than 2gm of sugar, is keto-friendly, paleo-friendly, gut-friendly, dairy-free, little over 200 calories per serving! The source of protein in each bar is from hydrolysed collagen peptides which are great for tendon and joint health.
