 Part B

After reviewing some healthy habbits on previous post, it’s time to pick it up from where we left it, and give some inspo ideas for a non-cheat Sunday!

Let’s begin:

     6. Rice crackers smoked Salmon and cream cheese :  As you may already know is a very good source of omega 3 fatty acids that help you protect your heart. For a quick, easy and healthy snack; take a rice cracker, spread some cream cheese (prefer low fat cream cheese) and add a slice of smoked salmon.

  7. Greek yogurt, walnuts and honey :  It offers high quality proteins, calcium and vitamins A & D. Add about 200gr Greek yogurts in a bowl, sprinkle 3 or 4 walnuts and drizzle it with 1 tablespoon of honey. This perfect bowl will feel you up with proteins from the yogurt, Omega 3 & Omega 6 fatty acids from the walnuts and other important vitamins from honey.

8. Sticks of carrot & cucumber with katiki cheese: Carrots are excellent source of antioxidants and beta-carotene. The human body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. We need vitamin A for healthy skin, mucus membranes and good eye health and vision. Just chop 1 or 2 carrots & cucumbers and dip them with a tablespoon of katiki cheese (Greek cheese). You can replace katiki cheese with yogurt or cottage cheese.

    9. Smoothie lover: There are so many recipes for smoothies that i really couldn’t find that one to suggest you. But, you can play with 3 basic things. You will need 1) One source of protein like milk, almond milk, yogurt. 2) One or maybe two fruits (it depends on their size). Try strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, (these are my favorite) but you can also try 1/2 banana, or an apple or whatever you want 3) Optional, I usually add some greens in my smoothies because you get your daily vitamin needs easily without lets say, change the taste of your great and yummy smoothie. Try spinach, kale, cucumber or other greens, just a cup and I’m sure you won’t regret it.
