The ten most delicious snacks you can eat after 6 pm

Many of you probably think that a dream body and healthy food are impossible phenomena. However, it’s always possible to lose weight and keep fit if you manage to find the right balance between healthy and tasty products.

1. Corn

Corn is not only healthy but also a very tasty snack. You should eat more boiled rather than canned corn, as it removes the excessive amounts of cholesterol from your body and prevents the accumulation of fat. Thus, if you had a heavy meal exceedingly high in calories during the day, we strongly recommend you to have some corn in the evening.

2. Nectarines

Despite the fact that some researches don’t recommend nectarines as a part of mid-afternoon snack, you shouldn’t ignore your beloved fruit. There is a high concentration of fibers in nectarines that will contribute to the acceleration of metabolism and prevent the accumulation of fat in your body.

3. Celery

You would be surprised to find out that celery is the kind of a produce that has zero or negative calories. This means that your body spends a lot of energy trying to digest it. Therefore, celery is simply the perfect option for your evening meal.

You probably don’t always feel like eating turnips, but once you do, you realize that you should make this an essential part of your daily ration.

7. Mushrooms

All in all, mushrooms are fat-free, low in calories, and rich in necessary metabolism-supporting nutrients. If you boil them instead of frying them in a large amount of oil, they can make an excellent dietetic product. And no, they don’t cause digestive disorders; we just usually serve them with a large variety of different ingredients that cause a feeling of heaviness in the stomach.

8. Beet

Beets fall into the category of ’irreplaceable products.’ They regulate fat metabolism, thus preventing obesity. It doesn’t matter if you eat them baked, roasted, or just raw, this amazing product doesn’t lose its nutrients in any condition.

Snack Recipe: Apple Sandwiches with Honeyed Peanut Butter, Oats & Raisins


What happens when apples and peanut butter – that old standby – get dressed up with a little flair? 
They turn into these charming little apple sandwiches.

Awhile back I attended a fancy catered event where I could hardly eat anything, as most of the dishes contained meat, dairy, or gluten — ingredients I have to avoid. My only consolation was the kids' table, where I found "sandwiches" made from sliced apples, peanut butter, oats, and raisins. Though the apples satiated my rumbling stomach, I didn't think much of them as I gazed longingly at the parade of off-limits foods.

But then a funny thing happened. In the weeks that followed, I found myself craving these well-rounded, tasty snacks. Apples and peanut butter are nothing new, but somehow the addition of toasted oats and raisins, and a touch of honey and cinnamon, makes them that much more satisfying. Now I frequently make these sandwiches for an afternoon snack.

Apple sandwiches are great for both adults and kids (little hands can help assemble them), and they're adaptable for various preferences and allergies. Instead of peanut butter, you might try almond butter or pumpkin-sunflower-flax seed butter, and the raisins may be swapped for dried cranberries, chopped dates, and other dried fruits. I like the simplicity and texture of lightly toasted oats, but granola is an option, as are toppings like chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and chia seeds.

INGREDIENTS
Makes 3 sandwiches
1 tablespoon rolled oats
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons unsweetened peanut butter
3/4 teaspoon honey
1 tablespoon raisins
1 medium apple

PREPARATION
1. Combine the oats and cinnamon in a dry skillet over medium heat and toast, stirring occasionally, until the oats are golden. Cool before using.

2. Mix together the peanut butter and honey.

3. Core and slice the apple into 6 rounds. (If you don't have an apple corer, you can slice the apple first and then cut out the centers with a small cookie cutter or knife.)

4. Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on 3 of the apple slices and sprinkle with raisins and oats. Top with the remaining apple slices to form sandwiches.

Tip
If you are not eating the apple right away, you can brush it with lemon juice to prevent browning. A solution of 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon lemon juice does the trick without tasting too lemony. 

For strict gluten-free diets, be sure to use gluten-free oats.

PIZZA CRACKERS

Pizza Crackers are a kid friendly snack that you can make in under 10 minutes.  The kids and adults go crazy for these!

I would like to say these are only for the kids, but lets be honest, the adults can eat these too {and will happily do so}. I love getting the kids involved when making these because they are so easy to do and the kids can help by putting ingredients on each cracker. I am a crispy crust pizza lover, so the fact that these little pizzas are made on crispy crackers makes me one happy girl. The best part of these Pizza Crackers is you can make them in under 10 minutes.

That means your kids can run into the house, get their backpacks put away, grab a glass of milk and sit down to a quick, delicious snack.  These Pizza Crackers are made using All Free for All Kitchen Crackers , the Olive Oil & Sea Salt to be exact, but these would also be great on their Roasted Garlic & Rosemary and the Olive Oil & Herb.

Do you want a glimpse into the simplicity? 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Grab a handful of 12 crackers, the pizza sauce, cheese and toppings {I used turkey pepperoni, but you could do veggies, sausage, or just plain cheese}.
Spread the pizza sauce on the crackers, top with the shredded cheese and whatever other toppings you want.
Put those beauties in the oven for 4-5 minutes, until the cheese starts to melt. Wallah! So easy and the kids go crazy for them.
Back to those Free for All Kitchen Crackers.  These crackers taste great and are an especially good choice if you, your children or their friends are gluten free.  When making these Pizza Crackers just make sure all of the ingredients you purchase are gluten free and you have a snack that everyone can eat!

INGREDIENTS
12 Free for All Kitchen Olive Oil & Sea Salt Crackers
5 Tablespoons pizza sauce
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
5 turkey pepperoni slices, sliced into small pieces

PREPARATION
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. Place the crackers on a cookie sheet. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on the crackers then top with the shredded cheese and the turkey pepperoni {or toppings of you choice}.

3. Bake the pizza crackers for 5 minutes, or until the cheese begins to melt and bubble.

3.Serve warm and enjoy!

Tip
Other topping ideas include sausage, broccoli, fresh tomatoes and zucchini.
