If you choose correctly, cereal may be a nutritious snack anytime.
Stay within the recommended serving size to cut calories.
A tiny apple offers 78 calories and roughly 4 grams of fiber.
Slice one over a salad, eat one with peanut butter for a midmorning snack, or bake a few with cinnamon and raisins for a healthy family dessert.
Did you know raspberries have more fiber than strawberries? Strawberries provide 3 grams of fiber per cup, while raspberries have 8.
Another high-fiber fruit is blueberries. Each berry contains disease-fighting antioxidants like vitamin C.
Nuts contain protein, healthy fat, and fiber, which keep you full. Because nuts are high in calories, eat in little amounts or buy 100-calorie bags.
To obtain nuts in every bite without adding calories, chop them and sprinkle over yogurt or porridge.
