Dinner lettuce cheese saladFood can become an enemy for our health and silhouette if we do not pay attention to what we eat and when we eat it.

It is very important to avoid skipping meals and try to have 3 main courses and two snacks every day. The dinner should be light and easy, because when you go to sleep the food in your stomach should be already digested, to avoid getting fat and having a unsatisfying sleep.

To be completely eliminated from the stomach, the meat needs up to 3 hours to be digested, in comparison with fruits, which only need 30 minutes to be digested. To make dinner selection easier for you, here you have some healthy ideas for a fast and light dinner:

The truth is that one of the simplest snacks to prepare is a smoothie. Here, the options are quite various. Basically, it depends on what are your favorite fruits.
