Even if we stick to healthy foods for main meals, we tend to give in to our temptations when it comes to snacks. Our mind is wired to consider snacks as small meals; hence, we don't mind cheating our diet to hog on fries and pakodas in between the meals. But, the reality is far from it. Eating such high fat foods regularly, even in small quantities, can add up to wreak havoc on our weight loss diet. We know that there are not many healthy options for snacking, but you can always put your creativity and imagination to good use and come up with healthy and tasty small meals that will take care of your untimely hunger cravings without derailing your weight loss track.

An ideal weight loss diet rests on some nutritional parameters, mainly comprising high proteins, low carbohydrates, low-fats and so on. This snack meets all these requirements to make for a delicious and weight-loss-friendly small meal. It is also perfect to be served as an appetiser at a party you host. People prefer mess-free ‘pick-me-up' finger foods at a social gathering. Instead of serving greasy snacks or high-carb garlic bread and bruschetta, serve this snack with tomatoes and cucumber as the base instead of bread. And, sprinkle protein-rich sprouted moong dal instead of heavy toppings. You can skip cream cheese on cucumber to make it low-fat. 

If you're on a weight loss diet, you can add this recipe to your daily meals, as a snack or as a low-carb dinner dish. We found this genius recipe of colourful garden fresh tapas on YouTube channel ‘Manjula's Kitchen', shared by popular food vlogger Manjula Jain. Watch the recipe video below and make this mildly spiced, refreshing and healthy appetiser at home.
