4. Baked kale crisps with smoky paprika salt

Baked kale is a healthy, low-fat, low-calorie snack – a great alternative to crisps. Season with whatever spices you fancy – celery salt or a mild chilli powder would both work well.

5. Energy balls

These little bites are great to have before exercise, or when you feel you're flagging – the simple sugars in the fruits give you an instant boost and the nuts, nut butters and oats provide slow-release energy. We’ve made three flavours, but you can create your own using the same idea.
