In today’s HospitalSoup.com healthy eating tip let’s talk about another one of my favorite snacks that are fast, easy to make, and most importantly, keep me feeling full for hours.

Take one of the smaller versions of the Low Carb Whole Wheat La Tortilla Factory Tortillas (50 calories) and then add a Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese Stick (60 calories)  inside and roll it up.  Place the tortilla with the cheese inside in your microwave and heat for a few seconds. Just until the cheese melts. Add a teaspoon of salsa if you wish, or some lettuce and salsa and you have a quick, easy, and filling snack.

Who says you can’t enjoy carbs and cheese while losing weight? With the whole wheat and fiber in the tortillas and the calcium and in the cheese along with the protein in this snack it will help give your body the fuel it needs to get through the day without starving. These tortillas are low carb as well, so you can eat them without feeling guilty.

Drink at least an 8 ounce glass of water about 15-20 minutes before your snack and you’ll be hydrating your body which is important for weight loss as well as helping you to feel full faster.
