The 5 factor diet is a revolutionary diet plan created to cater to actors and actresses’ dietary and exercise needs while on set. The same rules that apply to them apply to anyone else venturing into the diet plan, including what snacks to eat. Here is a list of 5 great snacks for the 5 factor diet.
1. Celery Sticks with Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus
Celery sticks are great snacks even by themselves because they actually help you burn calories as you eat them. They are a water-based food, so they are great for snacking and helping curb your hunger cravings. Adding a bit of sun-dried tomato hummus makes this a deliciously fat-burning snack you can enjoy any day.
2. Orange and Pineapple Salad with Cottage Cheese Dressing
Talk about delicious and nutritious! Oranges and pineapples make for great 5 factor diet snacks because they are filling, tasty and offer many of the necessary nutrients you need to keep your body burning up fats. Cottage cheese is an excellent ingredient to keep on your diet list because it is a great source of calcium among other vitamins and nutrients. Plus, it won’t make you feel heavy or too full. Just mix a 1/2 cup of oranges and a 1/2 cup of pineapples with a 1/3 cup of cottage cheese for a delicious and refreshing snack.
3. Peanut Butter and Yogurt Dip
Don’t be fooled by this combination. It may not sound like your idea of a delicious snack, but it is actually very tasty and filling. You simply combine low fat peanut butter with non fat yogurt, slice up a fresh apple or pear and dip away! Be warned: this snack is deliciously addictive.
4. Low Fat Trail Mix
Most pre-packaged trail mix foods you buy at the store have a lot of added sugar content that definitely isn’t part of the 5 factor diet. But, making your own trail mix is a great way to create a great tasting, low fat snack food you can even eat on the go. Just take your favorite nuts, such as almonds and walnuts, unsalted pretzels and some raisins and combine them in a tupperware dish to enjoy any time, anywhere.
5. Hard Boiled Egg with Chive and Tomato Cream Cheese
This snack will leave you satisfied and feeling great with all the nutritional benefits it has to offer. What you need is: 4 hard boiled eggs, 1 tomato, 1 to 2 chives and 1/3 of a cup of low fat cream cheese. Cut the hard boiled eggs in half and set aside. Using a dicer or knife, cut the tomato into 1/2 inch cubes and slice the chives into tiny bits. Place these ingredients and the cheese into a mixing bowl and mix on medium, just until blended. Spoon some of the cheese mixture onto each egg half. Enjoy!
These snacks are great for anyone on the 5 factor diet because they offer lots of nutrients and vitamins without the added fat or calories that other foods have. They are great tasting, filling and will help you on your way to a healthier you.
