Have you ever thought about what constitutes a healthy food or drink? To most people, healthy means having foods that are low fat, low carb, low calorie and low sugar. At Rude Health, we believe that buying a low-calorie, low carb or low-fat snack doesn’t automatically make it a healthy snack. Likewise, labelling a snack as gluten-free or dairy-free doesn’t automatically make it healthier.
We like to think about health in a slightly different way. We determine a food or drink’s healthiness by its quality and how nourishing it is for our bodies, not by health claims. Determining healthiness by something’s health claims tends to generate anxiety around food and take the fun out of eating.
Food should be made out of food and enjoyed and celebrated in its natural state. We’re talking ingredients that are pronounceable and recognisable, not processed, fortified or chemical.
We encourage everyone to be as interested in ingredients as we are. Try to understand what’s actually in their snacks and to look for snacks with nutritious and recognisable ingredients. Snacks should be made from the best of the best ingredients. We won’t settle for less.
We have a big collection of easy, quick and lip lickingly delicious snack recipes as well as four ranges of dribble worthy Rude Health snacks, ready and waiting. Read on.
So, your outlook on what makes a healthy snack has changed. It’s time to take snacking in to your own hands. From quick dips for your crackers like kimchi miso and guacamole to easy flapjacks and savoury oatcakes piled high with toppings. We’ve pulled out our favourite snacking recipes so that you can get your Delia Smith on.
