Guilt-Free Snacking + SunRice Rice Cake Bites

By 14/12/2017 No Comments

Eating regularly helps to balance blood levels, not to mention assists with diminishing sugar cravings. However, when it comes to snacking, many of us are time-poor and don’t have time to prep nutritious snacks to energise our day.

An important element of a snack is a carbohydrate source. As you may know, the brain is a very energy-hungry organ and requires a constant supply of energy. Carbohydrates are the brain’s preferred source of fuel and eating carbs regularly can help support concentration and mental clarity. Carbohydrates also offer a source of B-vitamins, which are needed for energy production in the body, as well as nervous system support. A carbohydrate snack offering a source of fibre is also a great way to count towards your overall daily fibre intake. Finally, eating a carbohydrate-rich snack before and after exercising is important to fuel performance and prevent muscle tissue breakdown post-exercise.

I often get asked for bite-sized snack ideas, which can be eaten on-the-go and are guilt-free. A snack that ticks all of the right boxes, nutrition- and convenience-wise, is SunRice Rice Cake Bites.

Rice Cake Bites are naturally gluten-free, made from 100% Australian wholegrain brown rice and available in 3 delicious flavours; Sour Cream & Chives, Smokehouse BBQ, and Sea Salt & Rosemary.

SunRice Rice Cake Bites can be eaten on their own. I’ve also created a simple dip to whip up and take with you to have alongside them. Happy snacking!
