What we eat in between the meals matter a lot in our weight loss regimen and hence we should pay a lot of attention to the snacks. Often it is seen that having the wrong type of snacks causes unwanted weight gain. Having the right ratio between nutrients and calories would help you have both in the right quantities which are essential for weight loss.
What vegetarian snacks can be good for health?
An apple and skim milk is the right kind of combination for snacking. Every fruit is good for snacking but a large apple and a glass of milk would provide you with both protein and fiber and that too for just less than 200 calories.
Another good combination of fruit and dairy product is to have an avocado filled with cottage cheese. This is for those of you who have a craving for something creamy and savory.
All you need to do is to remove the pit from one half of the avocado and fill it with cottage cheese. This would provide you with 7 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein. Lentils are also a good source of iron and you can have lentils spread with pita bread as a good snacking option.
Liquids are also good as snacks and hence you can have frozen berries, honey, make a smoothie with the two, and have a healthy, tasty, and filling snack.
What are the non-vegetarian snacks that you can have?
If you are craving non-vegetarian snacks then you can have a can of tuna with six whole wheat crackers as snacks. This whole snack would give you only 20 grams of protein. For those of you who love shrimps, here is a bit of good news.
Even if you are on a weight loss diet you can have shrimps with Greek yogurt and avocado as a delicious snacking option. Chicken pita sandwich is another great non-vegetarian snack. For this, you need to have grilled chicken and vegetables and spread it over pita bread, and have half of it as snacks.
