Protein Wards Off Hunger

When you reach for a snack try protein instead of sugar laden snacks. Oscar Mayer Mesquite Turkey SLices are good...6 slices at 45 calories, or a couple of tablespoons of cottage cheese or Fage 0% Greek Yogurt. When we eat proteins in our diet, the stomach secretes digestive acids that begin the process of breaking down the chemicals. Protein stablizes blood sugar.

Beans and nuts are a good source of protein as well as a chicken leg without the skin which is only anout 84 calories.

    Love this idea. I always think of Greek yogurt as breakfast. I makes so much sense to use it as a protein snack too. Thank you!
