How to Be a Savvy Snacker—According to Deliciously Ella

When trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle, many would agree that snacking is their downfall. A packet of sweets or bar of creamy chocolate can be like kryptonite to someone on a healthy diet. If you love to snack, you can factor in healthy options that are not only tasty and more adventurous than a piece of fruit but are also packed with micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). The key is to follow a good old-fashioned recipe and make your own, or to shop for healthy snacks that don't contain any hidden nasties (like preservatives and E numbers).

Our obsession with "eating clean" has led to a rise in healthy Instagrammers and wellness gurus. Among them is Deliciously Ella, a vlogger, author and now deli owner (The Mae Delis are based on Seymour Place and Weighhouse Street in London). Ella has shared tons of tasty recipes on her YouTube channel, and here we reveal the three sweet snack recipes we love.
