Eating right and exercising regularly are the best ways to jumpstart fat loss. But, finding the right healthy foods to incorporate into your diet can be hard if you don’t know where to start. This is especially true when it comes to snacking. Most healthy snacks involve fruit and vegetables, which can be kind of boring sometimes, but thankfully there’s a snack that makes eating these nutritious foods fun and easy–it’s a smoothie!

“When containing the right ingredients, a smoothie can make an excellent and healthy snack,” Regina Fazzini, a New York-based nutritionist, tells SheFinds. “If fat loss if your goal, then you should use fat-burning foods like berries, avocados, dark leafy greens and healthy sources of protein like whey protein–these are just some of the foods you can add to your smoothies; the possibilities are endless!”
