Low Calorie Snacks to Satisfy Cravings
Keeping energy levels up during the day can be difficult which is why we so often reach for the snacks drawer. Not all snacks are created equal, with some quenching cravings but not necessarily keeping you full or energised. The trick is to choose high fibre and high protein snacks. These are likely to keep you more full and satisfied compared with high sugar treats which will cause you to crash and crave more afterwards.
