There’s less structure and more temptation at the weekends to undo all the good eating of the past week, so instead of the crisps and chips, or chocolate bars, why not tuck into a delicious healthy snack, where you can avoid that blood sugar dip and tide yourself over until dinner. … These fill-you-up snacks are a delicious guilt-free treat and under 200 calories.
NUTS like peanuts, cashews, and almonds make for a crunchy way to add more protein and healthy unsaturated fats to your diet. They pack about 6 grams of protein per 2-ounce serving.
PUMPKIN SEEDS are a great source of whole-food protein, with about 7 grams in a crunchy serving. plus, none of their carbohydrates (5 grams per ounce) are sugar, making them an even better way to elevate protein content in salads, oatmeal, yogurt, or cottage cheese.
Among berries, STRAWBERRIES supply the least amount of sugar—about 11 grams per cup—making them a great option for helping satisfy a sweet tooth. If you’re concerned about possible pesticide exposure, opt for strawberries labelled “organic.” Have a great weekend!
