TOP 10 SIRT BOOSTERS
Here are 10 easy snacks of SIRT boosters than you can reach for when you need a SIRT top-up.
1 Green tea
1 cup (200ml) • 1 of your SIRT 5 a day • 0 calories
Never underestimate the healthy SIRT boost that a cup of green tea can give you. Have as many cups as you can per day – we recommend at least two cups. Not only that, the SIRTs in green tea are cumulative so you can get up to four portions of SIRTs daily if you have four cups of green tea or more.
2 Red grapes
10 grapes • 1 of your SIRT 5 a day • 30 calories
A very easy and low-calorie way to get one of your SIRT portions. Keep a punnet or two in the fridge and have a handful at breakfast or lunch or even both!
1 apple • 1 of your SIRT 5 a day • 47 calories
An apple a day really helps keep the doctor a way. Reach for an apple as an after-lunch treat. It will help keep any sugar cravings at bay too.
2 tsp/10g cocoa • 1 of your SIRT 5 a day • 33 calories
Try making a chocolate shot with 2 tsp cocoa. 1 tsp sugar and 30ml milk. Mix the cocoa and sugar together with a little boiling water from the kettle to make a smooth paste. Stir in the milk. An (almost) instant chocolate hit with only 68 calories.
6 large black or green olives • 1 of your SIRT 5 a day • 75 calories
