Hello NY Melrose Family friends, I am Jen and I blog over on PinkWhen. I am so excited to be guest posting over here today with  healthy snacks to burn fat! It’s that time to start reversing those extra holiday pounds, and you can do that by eating healthy. It’s so easy to make, and you will love the reward.

Healthy Snack to Burn Fat

One of the hardest things for anyone to do is to go on a diet and try and lose weight. When you are first starting out your goal seems so far away. In reality, you will look back 6 months later – you will be proud of the time and effort you put in to being healthier.

I am just like every other mom and I am always running. It takes effort to eat healthy and be healthy, and you have to give yourself time to incorporate cardio to your diet plan. Even if it is just 10-15 minutes a day. While I can’t promise you I will get my cardio in, I can promise you that changing your snack habits will also bring you rewarding results.

Healthy Snacks to Burn Fat

My favorite healthy snack to burn fat is canned tuna on whole wheat crackers. Not only is this one of the most simple snacks ideas, but it is basically a ready made snack for you.

A can of tuna (I always get mine packaged in water, versus oil) is not only a great source of lean protein, but it is also wonderful source for those healthy Omega-3’s.



You can grab a pre-made snack pack that contains 3 ounces of light tuna and six whole wheat crackers. Not only will it be enough to fill you up, but it will last a longer than those empty calorie sugary-snacks. Your entire snack will equal to 3 grams of fiber, 200 calories, and 20 grams of lean protein. Now that’s healthy!



There are so many different options when it comes to eating healthy, but the simple ones like this are the ones I love the best. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard, and a healthy snack to burn fat can be filling and delicious!
