Sinful Weight Loss Snack

Many weight loss recipes are tedious. Quite often - they can take close to twenty minutes to prepare - then another thirty minutes to cook. Not to mention the clean-up time after the meal has been eaten. Worry no more, baby - this one takes less than thirteen minutes to prepare and only twenty to cook.

While it may be a little longer than you wish, it's worth the little bit of extra time. When you taste these healthy snacks - you'll be glad you took the 33 minutes to put them together.

Simple fruit based snacks are an easy, fast and inexpensive way to get high quality nutrients into your fat loss and fitness diet. However, it is also easy to go overboard when it comes to the calorie content that can be loaded into these quick and simple treats.

From your choice of fruits to how you actually combine them with other ingredients, can make the difference between bloating yourself up with unnecessary carbohydrates and sugars, or feeding your body in way that leaves you full of energy & satisfied, while keeping you in a favorable calorie range.
