Dieters, Need Food Fast? 3 Super Easy Healthy Snacks for Weight Loss

By Rob Poulos...

Want to slim down?  Research shows that people who eat frequent meals usually weight less–and make better food choices.  And you too could take advantage of this by eating more frequent snacks throughout the day–but what’s best?  To separate healthy from unhealthy, here are three easy snacks that will add a healthy boost to your diet-friendly lifestyle:

Easy Healthy Snacks for Weight Loss

Want a healthy–and diet-friendly way–to eat more snacks throughout the day?  Here are three delicious snacks that won’t break your caloric budget:

1. Sliced vegetables with hummus.  Here’s a double bang here: An assortment of phytochemical-rich vegetables paired with heart-healthy hummus.  Vegetables such as fresh carrots, celery, and tomatoes are low calorie and virtually free of fat, whereas hummus provides another delicious benefit–a good dose of fiber, since most hummus is made from chickpeas.  Together, this snack does a body good.

How to make it: For fresh hummus, combine a 16 ounce can of chickpeas, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and pinches of garlic, salt, and tahini in a blender.  Blend thoroughly, slowly adding in water to soften the mixture, until all of the ingredients are fully integrated.  Afterward, serve in a bowl with sliced, fresh vegetables.  For spicier hummus, add a pinch of cayenne pepper.

2. Frozen yogurt popsickes.  Ice cream popsicles can be delicious during a heat burst, but they’re aren’t necessarily figure-friendly–just one popsicle can pack over 200 calories and 10 grams of fat, none of which are heart-friendly.  For a healthier twist, opt for a healthier, low-fat alternative instead–frozen yogurt popsicles.

How to make it: For figure-friendly snacking, add low-fat plain yogurt, a touch of honey, and your favorite selection of berries into a small mixing bowl.  Combine all of the ingredients until fully integrated.  Afterward, pour the mixture into a ice cream popsicle mold and stick popsicle sticks into each mold.  Stick the mold into a freezer for several hours to allow it to solidfy.  Afterward, remove and serve as is.

3. Healthy trail mix.  If you don’t have time to sit down to have a proper meal, then don’t reach for a bag of chips–reach for something healthier instead, such as healthy trail mix.  Packed full of nuts and dried fruit, you’ll get a double whammy here: healthy omega-3 fatty acids and a touch of cancer-fighting antioxidants.

How to make it: Add a cup of almonds, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, and dried bananas into a small bowl, mixing gently.  Next, add in a touch of sugar, salt, and if spice is your preference, some ground cayenne pepper.  Again, mix thoroughly until everything is fully integrated.  Separate into small plastic baggs and you’re ready for instant snacking.  Tip: For different trail mix, dried blueberries, blackberries, or even strawberries are great ways to add additional phytochemicals to your daily diet.

Also, don’t forget nature’s greatest snack–fresh, succulent fruit.  Simply wash, peel if desired, and eat raw.  It’s naturally sweet and good for you!
