One or two hours after breakfast, if you start feeling hungry and do not want to load up on calories and sugar, try green tea. It has zero calories and is a great source of antioxidants. Green tea helps to flush out toxins, suppresses your appetite, and prevents microbial infections.

Use pure green tea leaves instead of the flavored ones as the latter often contain added sugar or artificial sweeteners, which you should avoid. You can add 4-5 drops of lime juice or Ceylon cinnamon powder or ginger to enhance the flavor and aroma of your green tea.

4. Ricotta Cheese With Sunflower Seeds

Homemade ricotta cheese is a healthy and nourishing snack. The best part is, it’s easy to make and can be stored in an airtight container to take to office or school.

Pour 500 mL of full-fat milk (yes, full-fat dairy is what you need to lose weight, not the slim one) into an aluminum saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the flame and add the juice of half a lime. The milk will curdle and separate and float on the surface, leaving the whey (greenish liquid) underneath. Strain the milk solids out and transfer it to a bowl or an airtight container. Add 2 teaspoons of sunflower seeds and ¼ teaspoon of brown sugar. Mix well, and you are all set!

5. Hard Boiled Egg

  • Protein: 6 g

Eggs are a great source of protein and both water and fat-soluble vitamins. The yolk is a little higher in cholesterol content, but it is way less than the other junk foods that you snack on. Moreover, you can have two full whole eggs per day. So, if you are hungry and want a delicious protein-rich snack to keep you satiated for at least another hour, eat a whole egg.
