This open sandwich might look like it is loaded with calories and not good for weight loss. But let me tell you, not all fats and carbs are bad. Healthy fats like avocado help reduce inflammation, thereby preventing inflammation-induced weight gain. And good carbs from whole wheat bread, veggies, and fruits keep you satiated and cleanse the colon, leading to better digestion and metabolism.
To make this open sandwich, you need one slice of whole wheat bread, ½ California avocado, 2 teaspoons of ricotta cheese, and a pinch of salt. Slice up the avocado and lay the slices on the bread. Top it with ricotta cheese and sprinkle a little salt. And you are all set to snack on one of the most filling and healthy homemade snacks.
These are the 14 post-breakfast snack ideas. Now, let us look at a few post-lunch healthy snacks.
