Afternoon Snacks.

Eat A Crumpet Or Muffin With Honey

If you long for cake mid-afternoon, a toasted wholemeal breakfast muffin or a crumpet with a scrape of honey is a cosy, sweet treat and, without butter, less than 150 calories. A slice of malt loaf is another hearty alternative


What snacks burn fat?


Eating snacks with the right ratio of nutrients, with the right calories, will help keep you body energized and help you lose weight. Protein (plus exercise) fuels the growth of lean muscle mass, which boosts metabolic rate and increases calorie burn. Fiber, meanwhile, helps improve digestion and keeps you from binging on fats and sugars. So while there's no food that will literally "burn fat" while you eat it, smart choices with these ingredients will help your body operate at maximum efficiency. Flatsnout suggests snacks under 200 calories, with 10 grams of protein and close to 5 grams of fiber. Here are a few of our favorite fat-burning snacks.


An apple and skim milk


"Almost any fruit is going to make a great snack, but you usually want to pair it with a bit of protein to make it more satisfying," says Bowerman; "unlike carbohydrates, which get used up relatively quickly, protein will help sustain your energy and hunger levels for a couple of hours."

Our pick for a protein-fruit pairing: one large apple and one cup of skim milk. This duo will give you 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber for just over 200 calories.


Cottage cheese-filled avocado


Here's another fruit and diary combo, this one for when you're craving something rich, creamy, and a bit savory. Remove the pit from one half of an avocado and fill the space with 2 ounces of 1% cottage cheese. For 200 calories, you'll get 9 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber—and no dirty dishes!


Canned tuna on whole-wheat crackers


If you don't want to incorporate dairy into every snack, a can of tuna (packaged in water) is another great source of lean protein plus healthy Omega-3s. For about 200 calories, you can enjoy 3 ounces of light tuna and 6 whole-wheat crackers—complete with 3 grams of fiber and 20 grams of protein.


Sunflower lentil spread with pita bread


Lentils are a good source of iron, a metabolism-boosting nutrient that 20% of us don't get enough of. This savory recipe makes four 180-calorie servings, with 10 grams each of protein and fiber.



Ingredients

  • 1 (15-ounce) can lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 1 celery stalk, finely diced
  • 1 scallion, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 pitas, halved
Preparation

1. Combine lentils, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a blender; process until smooth.

2. Stir in sunflower seeds, celery, scallions, and parsley.

3. Microwave pita at HIGH 1 minute. Serve with spread.


Shrimp stack

You may not think of shellfish as a grab-and-go snack food, but you can put this tasty treat together in a flash if you keep pre-cooked shrimp on hand. With Greek yogurt and avocado, it's a protein powerhouse with 9 grams per serving (and 4 g fiber), for only 129 calories.


  • 1 tablespoon fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon jalapeño sauce
  • 1/4 avocado, chopped
  • 1 crisp rye flatbread
  • 5 cooked large shrimp
  • Chopped fresh parsley and cracked black pepper (for garnish)
Preparation Stir yogurt, lime juice, sauce, and avocado; spread on cracker. Top with shrimp, parsley, and pepper.
