Fruit is great, especially once you've gone without a lot of sugary-sweets for awhile. I cut up a pear the other day and was all darn that is SWEET.
I find it is nicer to make it look a little nice (slice it up and present it nicely on a plate for nibbling, or cube up a few different types in "fruit salad" style, or serve with a small - half ounce to one ounce - portion of good-quality cheese, which cuts the "sweet".

Love these - thanks! That's the second time someone suggested almond butter to me today.
- Almonds - Toasted sprouted grain bread with 1 TB peanut butter and sliced bananas - plain greek 2% yogurt (1/2) with fruit of choice, sliced. - 4% cottage cheese as above. - real cheese sticks - apples, grapefruit (1/2), tangerines/oranges/clementines, 1/2 c berries (strawberries, blueberries are my favorites) - sliced apple with peanut or almond butter (1 TB)

Hi all. My problem has always been sweets. I'm trying to eat a piece of fruit or vegetable with a protein during the day. It holds me over. At night I will have a carb and a fat or protein like baked VIPs with salsa or popcorn with a cheese stick. The diabetic food plan (although I'm not diabetic) helps my blood sugar be more stable and I'm not craving as much sugar. Saturday night I have a Bowl of ic cream or whatever. In the interest of keeping this up does anyone have some good snacking ideas that don't involve too much sugar? Thanks!
