Beat Afternoon Cravings With These Foods

Catherine here,

Trying to stay away from the sweets in your house necessary for your family but bad news for you? You are not alone! Try some of these tasty ways to beat cravings and still keep the calories low. Here are just a few suggestions to beat the afternoon boredom – stress cravings.

Sweet Fruits

Strawberries
keep you feeling full and provide an energy boost. One cup of strawberries is only 55 calories and has 6 grams of carbs.
Make a smoothie with strawberries and soy milk or top with low-fat yogurt or Cool Whip. Smash them and eat them on toast – why not! I also make diet jello in bulk so I can layer fruit and yogurt or cottage cheese on top. It truly makes you feel stuffed!

Grapefruit and Blueberries for a delicious snack that is filling and so good for you! Blueberries are rich in heart healthy filling fiber and only contain 40 calories in a half cup along with 6 grams of carbs. A grapefruit has about 52 calories and is rich in Vitamin C and fiber. It is higher in carbs about 13 so you may only want to eat half at a time. The two mixed together make a tangy and filling snack.

Raspberries – Half a cup (60 grams) contains 3 grams of carbs.

Cherries – Half a cup (90 grams) contains 9 grams of carbs.

Cantaloupe – One cup (160 grams) contains 11 grams of carbs.
