Some people may call these "healthy snacks", but I prefer to consider them meals because they should be similar in size to your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, if you want to spread your calorie intake out over the full day to "graze" so to speak.
After all, I'm sure it's no secret by now that eating 5-6 small meals per day is a much better strategy (for blood sugar control and appetite control) for getting lean compared to the traditional "3 squares" a day (which for most people, turns into only 2 big meals/day as many skip breakfast).
The problem that I see most people having is being prepared enough to bring healthy "mid-meals" with them to work for the day. If you don't plan ahead, and bring something healthy and balanced with you when you're out and about for the day, or at work, you're going to end up choosing the junk food at the vending machine or corner store.
So here are some of my favorite natural foods based mid-meals that I've used for years with great success and that lots of my clients love too. I want to keep things simple here, so I'm just gonna give a couple of my easiest, quickest, and healthiest...
Quick, healthy snack ideas to keep your body lean:
Apple or other fruit with almond butter
Hummus with carrot sticks or sliced red/yellow/orange peppers
Guacamole with carrot sticks or sliced red/yellow/orange peppers
Ricotta cheese (grass-fed if possible) mixed with cocoa powder, stevia, and vanilla extract (delicious high protein, low carb snack!)
Cottage cheese mixed with yogurt, berries, and walnuts or pecans
A couple hard boiled eggs with carrot and celery sticks and hummus (roasted red pepper hummus is my favorite)
Celery sticks with organic peanut butter or almond butter (a classic quick healthy snack)
My famous healthy chocolate FUDGE recipe
Avocado slices wrapped in nitrate-free deli turkey breast (one of my favorite quick snacks)
A piece of sprouted grain toast (sprouted-grain preferred nutritionally over "whole grain") with almond butter or pecan butter and berries
Fresh sliced pineapple with a handful of macadamia nuts
a bowl of blueberries mixed with raw almonds
my quick and healthy fat-burning chocolate pudding recipe
Cottage cheese with cinnamon, apple slices, and walnuts (mmm, mmm good)
That should give you some ideas to start working with. Now you have ZERO EXCUSES for resorting to junk food snacks on the road or at the office, when you have all of the delicious and healthy fat-burning snack ideas right here!
I hope these dietary tips help you lose that belly fat and lead you towards a healthier lifestyle.
