A handful of nuts can really hit the spot, both in terms of satisfying hunger and packing in quality nutrition at snack time. If you choose walnuts, a palm-ful (about half a cup) brings in 9 grams of protein, plus omega-3 essential fatty acids, fiber and a decent dose of copper and manganese. Give your taste buds a new take these healthy faves with a dash of spice and some sea salt, baking for 15 minutes to add crispy crunch.
Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter, which means you’ve got plenty of time to start slimming down for swimsuit season (or even spring break). The key to getting lean is to combine cardio exercise with the right diet. First, you need to make sure you’re doing enough cardio to burn fat every day. Next, clean up your plate. When mapping out your weekly meal plans, consider including high-quality meal replacement shakes. Let me tell you why.
Life is like a bowl of…strawberry gelato! Take a break from the busy life to enjoy a sweet, chilly treat made from fresh berries. Pretty-pink in color and pleasing to any palate, it combines real pureed fruit with a swirl of coconut oil, a hint of raw honey and a secret healthy ingredient. Unlike other frozen desserts, this one isn’t made with heavy cream and scoops of sugar. The soft, silky texture and rich flavor come from a Svelte® French vanilla protein shake.
Big Italian dinners and diets typically don’t mix. But watching your waistline doesn’t have to mean rich, savory meals are always off limits. Rather than pining away for pasta, make a mouthwatering main dish with tender chicken, loads of veggies and bold flavor brought on by a long, slow simmer in tomato sauce with authentic Italian spices. You won’t miss the carb-heavy bed of noodles or rice under classic cacciatore combos thanks to this recipe’s 55 grams of protein per serving!
If you’ve made a resolution to eat healthier meals and snacks, we’ve got a hint: Consider the sensational concoction known as the smoothie. They make the perfect quick, light lunch or anytime snack. And when it comes to satisfying cravings, we’re especially fond of the color green! Veggies like lettuce and kale add fiber and thickness to a smoothie, while raw honey and almond milk serve up just the right amount of sweetness.
No matter how you slice it, a sandwich is still a carb-heavy meal—not what you want when you’re trying to sculpt a lean bod. Skip the bread and blend up an oldie but goodie, smoothie style, instead. Creamy peanut butter and sweet strawberry jam are whirled together with Greek yogurt, Six Star whey and a splash of milk for a frosty, drinkable lunch with extra protein punch.
Hit the gym, then hit the kitchen. You’ll score triple the post-workout nutrition and triple the flavor with this punched up, three-berry smoothie. Berries can’t be beat when it comes to antioxidant power—they’re packed with the protective nutrients you need after exercise unleashes a flurry of free radicals to hammer your healthy cells. Blended with flax, strawberry protein power and a bit of milk, they make a smooth, refreshing recovery drink that blows boring chocolate and vanilla versions away.
