Healthy snack recipes for weight loss



My philosophy in nutrition is quite simple. Healthy doesn’t have to be hard! I don’t believe in good or bad foods, just in foods that are better for you than others, and in those that we should consume more of. Honestly, I believe that all foods can fit into a well balanced habit. It is just learning about that balance that is most important.

I love to eat. I mean really love it. Freshly baked bread. Creamy, soft, cheese. A red, ripe tomato. As a foodie, and an anti-diet dietitian, I believe that diet should be defined by what you eat — not by what you can’t.

I have a strong belief that we put into our bodies directly affects our mood, thoughts, focus, and energy level. Nourishing our bodies with the right foods can prevent health issues and allow us to live up to our highest potential. My motto — “Eat what you love and still lose weight”.
This is a list of healthy snacks, when a snack attack strikes, refuel with these nutrition-packed snacks. Easy, Tasty (and Healthy) Snacks
