And we have not forgotten our readers with a sweet tooth- toss in some lovely raisins for some natural sweetness.

5. Pisang Nugget

Here’s a popular energy-fuelled snack that will have you munching happily and bouncing for hours! The Nugget Pisang has its roots in Goreng Pisang (or, quite literally, fried banana) and is essentially a golden, crispy nugget of sweet and crunchy. Preparing the dish is fail proof – a matter of mashing the bananas, folding it in diced bread and mixing it gently into the batter.

6. Chocolate Pretzel Milk Shake

This is the first of two chocolate recipes on this list, because there are few things more addictive, more instant-fuelling than the cocao bean. All chocolate lovers know this –a generous pinch of salt to chocolate can really enhance its flavour. Chocolate milkshake is no different but instead of using salt, this recipe calls for... the crunchy salty goodness of pretzels. A word of warning: This sweet and salty Chocolate Pretzel Milk Shake is so heavenly that there is no chance you will enjoy a normal chocolate milkshake after.

7. Salted Egg Kale Chips

Kale is a great energy-booster, containing an amino acid that may help give you the mental lift you need but … let’s face it: no-one wants to eat it on its own. And that’s why we have come up with the Salted Egg Kale Chips! This superfood is baked in buttery goodness, curry leaves, the heat of chillies and the super side-kick -creamy umami-filled salted eggs. Need some sweetness? We used gavia instead, it's a sugar replacement and a rare sugar equivalent.

8. Asian Lime Edamame

The perfect protein-packed snack to have between meals, the Asian Lime Edamame will have you unabashedly licking your fingers. It is savoury and salty, piquant and aromatic due to the simple combination of salt, honey, soy sauce and lime juice. Quick tip: it is a great healthy snack because it contains low cholesterol and are an excellent source of protein, iron and calcium!

9. Creamy Matcha Blueberry Smoothie

A completely satisfying super tonic for a mid-week booster, this might be just the drink that every champion needs. All you need is a quick 10 mins to blend up a beautiful rainbow spread of blueberries, banana, and chia in a creamy blend of Greek yoghurt and milk. And all that sweetness is balanced with zesty ginger, chillingly cool mint leaves and bitter matcha powder for all-round goodness.

10. Cold Chocolate Peanut Fruit Kebabs

Can you get a high that's better than chocolate? Use dark chocolate for healthy, guilt-free pleasure. This is an awesome treat for the kiddos, both to prepare and to eat! Involve the little ones by getting them to piece together the fruits and peanut chocolate while you do the “dirty” deed of melting the chocolate. Not only are these sticks of Chocolate Peanut Fruit Kebabs healthy, it will keep them happily entertained!
