Fruit salad

Nothing better to snack on, on a hot day than a refreshing fruit salad. Slice or chop a few of your favourite fruits together and mix in a bowl. Opt not to remove the peel from fruits such as apples as they contain valuable nutrients and also add flavour as well as texture to the salad.
Celery and cheese

Celery is well known as a vegetable that supports one’s weight loss efforts. It is very low in calories, is loaded with water and fibre – a fabulous nutrient for weight loss. Try having some celery with a little cream cheese. Cream cheese is a good source of protein and when enjoyed with some celery, is simply delicious!
