20 healthy snacks to get you ready for bikini shape

Like with studying with preparing for Summer shape I really start last minute when it comes to daily exercising.

I mean, I do exercise at home or run about 3 days a week but feel like now when preparing for bikini season I should definitely do it daily, especially since I am working from home and moving much less daily then before and spending most of the time in front of computer.

Now, no matter how often you exercise, if you don’t eat right you won’t get in desired shape that soon. Generally, I am eating quite healthy, cooking meals at home three times a day for my boyfriend and I eat with him. For me, the issue was portion control sometimes, late night meals and carbs. This is exactly what I decided to cut down on – I don’t eat bread, my last meal is at 8pm and I drink much more water.

Since I work long hours sometimes between conference calls I don’t get to eat lunch so I get whatever I can eat from fridge without cooking which is usually not to healthy, so now I found marvelous 20 snack option, which I tried all and love them for mid day, evening or morning snack.

#2 Tofu spinach dip with raw veggies.
#3 Low-fat cottage cheese with fruit spread and unsalted pretzels.
#4 Tortilla chips and chunky salsa.

#16 Smoothie – mango with mango Greek yogurt and a splash of orange juice.

On top, I always eat healthy breakfast, instead of coffee with milk only espresso without sugar, I actually add small spoon of honey instead! My second coffee I now replaced with green tea.

How are you doing with preparing for bikini shape? Do you have any tips which worked for you to share with us?

Try some of these! Just pack them in a zip lock bag and bring to work instead of sweets or bakery goodies.
