High-Protein Fat-Burning Snacks -- or mid-meals

Before I tell you one of my favorite high-protein fat-burning snacks that I absolutely love... just a quick announcement today...

If you want fat-burning meal plans in a "done-4-you" manner, which can eliminate the confusion of trying to plan everything yourself... you should check out the site below.

I reviewed a lot of the meal plans in this program and they're pretty damn good! They even have calorie levels that can be adjusted to your individual level needed to lose fat. Plus, it makes grocery shopping a snap because the quantities are all laid out for you without guesswork.
Lot's of good variety too... Check it out:

My high-protein, fat-burning snack:

Ok, here's one of the simplest high protein snacks that I've used a lot over the years. I like this as a small meal either late at night (due to the high protein, low carb content or even sometimes for a midmeal during the afternoon between lunch and dinner.

Vanilla-Cinnamon Nut Cottage Cheese...

Even people I know that say they don't like cottage cheese have told me that they loved this!

Here's what I mix together:
  • mix together 2 to 1 ratio of cottage cheese to vanilla yogurt (that makes this higher in protein than in carbs)
  • vanilla extract to taste
  • cinnamon to taste (don't be shy with cinnamon...it's one of the most powerful antioxidants you can get...even more than most berries)
  • handful of raw nuts (pecans, almonds, or walnuts are my favorites...but just about all nuts are packed with nutrition and healthy fats to keep your cravings at bay)
  • just a touch of stevia to sweeten (stevia is a non-caloric natural sweetener that I believe is much safer than artificial sweeteners). I've ordered stevia (and yerba mate too, btw) at this site in the past:

This is such an easy and quick recipe, but it's REALLY good... at least I think so, and a lot of people that I've had try it really liked it too. Simple, easy, and packed with craving-ending nutrition!

Like I said, it's also great for a late-night snack because of the healthy fats, relatively low carbs, and the casein protein content (which helps your body prevent catabolizing muscle tissue overnight because of the long-lasting casein protein).

Feel free to fwd this email to any of your friends or family that might want to try this recipe.
