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.

MORE INFORMATION:
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!
