7 Snacks That Melt Fat

Here are a few good snack combinations that will fill you up and give your body some of the nutrition that it really needs. Even better news, they are all DELICIOUS


  • Slice one hard-boiled egg.
     Place pieces on five low-salt whole-grain crackers topped with small tomato slices. Add ground pepper to taste.
  • Dip 10 carrot sticks into two tablespoons of hummus. Go the homemade route and whip up this tasty recipe for black bean hummus.
  • Make use of your leftovers: Shred two ounces of turkey breast and place on half a toasted whole wheat English muffin. Place two thin slices of avocado and a large sliced strawberry on top.
  • Cut a small apple into eight pieces. Mix together one tablespoon of natural peanut butter and one teaspoon of honey; spread evenly on each slice. Super easy and you can take those basics with you anywhere.
  • Lightly toast one small slice of whole-grain bread. Cover its surface with two ounces of drained water-packed tuna and top with one tablespoon of shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted. It doesn’t have the weight of a restaurant style tuna melt but it fills you up without loading you with fat and empty calories.
  • Cut one large flaxseed tortilla in half. (Save the other half for your next snack attack.) In a small bowl, mash one-quarter cup of blueberries and sprinkle with cinnamon. Spread one tablespoon of low-fat cream cheese onto one half, then top with the blueberry mixture. Fold it and chow down. This snack will satisfy that killer sweet tooth.
  • Have a quick, colorful salad: Toss three cups of baby spinach, 10 cherry tomatoes and one tablespoon of pine nuts with two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. If this doesn’t really do it for you try mixing in other veggies like bell peppers or broccoli.
