Snacking is a common cause of weight gain around the belly, so if you’re managing your weight, you must opt for superfood snacks. Superfoods are healthy and naturally packed full of nutrients. They have protein, fiber, antioxidants, and/or certain fatty acids, enhancing your overall wellness. Additionally, superfoods support weight loss and contribute to busting belly fat. Most fruits and vegetables you already consume are superfoods, along with proteins, nuts, grains, and seeds.
An easy-to-put-together tasty snack, mashed avocado on sliced whole-grain toast is yummy with sliced tomatoes, sea salt, and a dash of lemon juice. Rich in monounsaturated fats, which are associated with belly fat reduction and insulin sensitivity improvement, avocados also have fiber and support a healthy gut and heart. Whole grain toast also adds fiber, which promotes fullness and aids digestion, and tomatoes have a nutrient, lycopene, that’s known for fighting free radicals.
Canned Tuna with Grain-Free Crackers
Another crunchie superfood snack is canned tuna with grain-free crackers. Canned tuna has lean protein, which is essential for weight loss as it leaves you feeling full for longer. Fiber is added to this snack by the grain-free crackers, which helps lower possible food cravings.
Hummus with Vegetables
Another excellent superfood snack is hummus with fresh vegetables if you’re looking to bust belly fat. This snack has lots of vitamins and minerals as well as fiber and protein, which are all essential for losing belly fat. Made with chickpeas, which have fiber, hummus is also a yummy snack that is filling as well. Good vegetable choices to go along with this snack are cucumbers, sliced peppers, and carrots. Vegetables have soluble fiber which plays an important role in busting belly fat.
A great way to boost your nutrient intake on the go is to whip up a fruit smoothie. Ensure you add carbs, fiber, healthy fats, and proteins to your smoothie. Adding nut butter is a healthy protein and fat option, as is adding protein powder. Smoothies can be tailored to your taste with the kind of foods you enjoy.
