6 Health-giving fast foods

The contemporary market place isn’t set up for us to conveniently eat healthy food.

On the contrary, much of the food and ‘food-like products’ lining supermarket isles have been preserved, flavoured and processed in order to be traded successfully, not to nourish our bodies and minds.

It is quite bizarre that there’s a tiny section in most supermarkets are dedicated to ‘health foods’. Whilst even some of the products in these have questionable ingredients, the existence of the ‘health food section’ suggests that the rest of the products in the shop are ‘not-health-foods’.

Here are 5 of my top tips on quick, easy, healthy fast foods snacks,

Even for when you’re away from your kitchen cupboard.

Soaked, organic almonds mixed with mixed legume sprouts

Put a handful of almonds in a glass of water for an hour. Have a packet of sprouts (available from most supermarkets): either mung bean, chick pea and other sprouts. Mix them together. Even more delicious with a pinch of Himalayan salt or dulse powder.


Do the avo alone, with a squeeze of lemon, AC vinegar, or with some canned fish scooped or mung beans sprouts into where the pit was. Optimal fats, satisfying and delicious!

Super food trail mix

Play around with seeds, superfoods, nuts and dried fruits to find your perfect blend. My blends normally contain goji berries, pepitas (green pumpkin seeds), chopped (sulphur free) dried apricots and walnuts (ideally activated). Be mindful to avoid too many high sugar and high fat items (dried sweet fruits and nuts), and err more towards the dried berries and seeds.

Hummus with vegetable crudite

I always get diary free hummus. Hoummus should be made from chickpeas, sesame seeds (tahani), garlic, lemon juice and oil. Select seasonal vegetables, and chop them up into finger size pieces. There are other things that carrot and celery sticks! Cucumber, snap peas, broccoli florets, capsicum, radish, green beans, purple beans, for example.

Organic natural living yoghurt

A few dollups of this over your favourite fresh fruit and sprinkle of seeds.

Miso ‘soup’

have a few spinach leaves, and nori leaves, pour over hot water. Then stir in a teaspoon of miso paste. It’s nice to add additional things to this too, such as cubed tofu, fresh bean sprouts, sliced mushrooms or dashi if you have it handy.

You are what you eat! Enjoy and celebrate good food choices!
