It should be much easier to follow a healthier, yet tasty diet. Often, we snack on calorie-rich foods during the day and it can be so easy to enjoy a light snack that will keep you on track. Prawn Rolls are the snack for you. They are fresh, light and just right for that mid-afternoon snack. Perfect for the healthy individual or lunchbox filler for the kids.

Prawns provide a good amount of protein which will keep you satiated for longer and provides better energy to the body. Prawns and avocado both provide healthy fats to the mix while the veggies include many great vitamins. Don’t get discouraged by Julienne veggies, it only means that you cut them in very thin strips. You can even use a grater if you’re more strapped for time. Each serving is only 96 calories, making it the perfect snack for later in the day.
