The Truth About Abs

I receive a lot of questions from my readers when they have been doing much better at choosing healthy breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, but they are still struggling to find good ideas for healthy and quick "mid-meals"... especially a quick small meal or snack that can be brought to the office or on road trips (so you can avoid the fast food junk).

Mid-Meals, What to Eat Between MealsSome people may call these "healthy snacks," but I prefer to consider them meals. That's because they should be similar in size to your breakfasts, lunches and dinners, if you want to spread your calorie intake out over the full day - or "graze," so to speak.

After all, I'm sure it's no secret by now that eating 5-6 small meals per day is a much better strategy for getting lean, compared to the traditional "3 squares" a day (which for most people, turns into only 2 big meals/day as many skip breakfast).

The problem that I see most people having is not being prepared enough to bring healthy mid-meals with them to work for the day. If you don't plan ahead and bring something healthy and balanced with you when you're out and about or at work, you're going to end up choosing the junk food at the vending machine or corner store.

So here are some of my favorite mid-meals. I've used these for years with great success, and lots of my clients love them, too. I want to keep things simple here, so I'm just going to give a couple of my easiest, quickest, and healthiest!

Quick, healthy mid-meal ideas to keep you lean:

  • Apple or banana with almond butter

  • Cottage cheese mixed with yogurt, berries, and walnuts or pecans

  • A couple hard boiled eggs with carrot and celery sticks and hummus (roasted red pepper hummus is my favorite)

  • Celery sticks with organic peanut butter (a classic quick snack)

  • Avocado slices wrapped in deli turkey breast (one of my favorite quick snacks)

  • A piece of sprouted grain toast (or whole grain, but sprouted grain preferred) with nut butter and berries

  • Fresh sliced pineapple with a handful of macadamia nuts

  • A bowl of blueberries mixed with raw almonds

  • Cottage cheese with cinnamon, apple slices, and walnuts (mmm, mmm good)


  • That should give you some ideas to start working with. Remember that my Truth About Six Pack Abs ebook contains 84 additional lean-body meal ideas to keep your eating plan interesting and delicious!
