7. Baby carrots with curry dip
My personal favorite snack from the RADIATE program is the carrot curry dip.
Here’s how to do it…
- 1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon of curry
- a pinch of salt and pepper
You can add any other spices by choice to this base, and it will still taste amazing while dipping with your baby carrots, or cucumber circles, whatever you prefer.
Pistachios are tiny, but they pack a powerful nutritional punch.
They contain protein, fiber and a wealth of vitamins and minerals.
Adding pistachios to your healthy eating plan is crucial, for keeping your body and heart healthy.
As long as you make sure they are roasted with sea salt or Himalayan salt, you’re all set.
You’ll find pistachios in my meal plan too. A hand or two in between your meals will help you satisfy your snack craving and load you up on some healthy fats and proteins.
9. Green Bean “Fries”
I often like to say: If your food is green, your food is good! (Unless it’s a gummy bear)
That’s why my next snack idea is all green, nutritious and delicious!
Green beans chips taste so freaking good, you have to try it out.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 cups green beans
- 1 tablespoon parmesan
- 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin olive oil
- Spices by choice
What you should do is place the green beans into a larger bowl, pour the olive oil, parmesan, a pinch of salt and your favorite spices.
Stir everything nice, spread them on a baking sheet and bake them on 200°C until they turn into chips.
You can do this same thing on almost any veggie, and they will taste amazing.
10. Frozen Blueberry yogurt bites
Oh, probably the most famous recipe from the RADIATE program are the frozen blueberry bites!
Every girl that has been on this program, loves the blueberry bites!
And if you have a sweet tooth but don’t want to ruin your weight loss efforts, this is definitely one for you.
This is actually one of the best desert snacks for weight loss, since it’s low in calories and sugars, yet tastes delicious.
You’re going to need:
- 1 pint container blueberries
- 1 cup sugar-free Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon stevia
Stir the yogurt and the stevia together and gently fold in the blueberries to coat in the yogurt. Scoop them up with a fork, and place them on a baking sheet, making sure not to have them touch.
Freeze them for about an hour, and get ready to snack!
Here’s how to do them, they are so easy to make!
11. Apple & Peanut Butter
Peanut butter is not that bad of a choice when you try to maintain a healthy life.
And paired with fresh apples, it makes the perfect combo.
As long as you watch the portion and make sure you go for a raw, unsalted version, you’re all set.
I like spreading it on green apples most, or using it as a dip for my apple slices.
12. Paprika Sticks With Guacamole
This is my number 1 snack when it comes to having some friends over – HOLY GUACAMOLE!!!
Just do your favorite guacamole recipe, cut out paprika sticks and start dipping.
You can combine paprika sticks with the curry sauce too, they’re the number one snack when it comes to loading up with Vitamin C too.
13. Cottage Cheese
I LOVE cottage cheese. I even call it my fit ice-cream …I’m a weirdo, I know, but I can’t keep myself from finishing the whole can of cottage cheese once I open it.
I just love the creamy taste, and can’t believe that something that tastes like that can be healthy.
Just make sure you choose a low-sodium brand, because they sometimes sneak in a lot of salt in there.
Here’s an idea from my BBB Meal Plan – mix it with chopped pears, few walnuts and drizzle honey over it.
14. Sunflower Seeds
Once you start snacking it’s so hard to stop. However, if you do it in moderations, you’re all set.
Just make sure to go for sunflower seeds with shell, salted with sea salt or Himalayan salt.
Seeds and nuts are not dangerous at all if you eat a hand or two, so don’t be afraid to do it every now and then.
15. Parmesan Roasted Tomatoes
This snack idea is an easy and fast one, yet tastes so good.
However, I would not recommend it later in the day, since parmesan can be pretty caloric itself.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A couple of tomatoes
First, rinse the tomatoes and slice them into halves.
Toss gently with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Arrange the tomatoes on a baking paper, and top them with grated Parmesan cheese.
Roast for about 15-20 minutes on 200°C in a preheated oven, or until the Parmesan cheese is melted and the top is slightly browned.
