I really love small snacks throughout the day. This one is ideal and easy! Sounds weird but it’s not – I promise.
- 4-5 ounces of plain low-fat, Greek yogurt
- 1 cup red grapes (sliced in half)
…combine the aforementioned ingredients and mix. Viola!
Now you’ve got a low calorie, high protein snack that is of low GI content (glycemic index) which will be a great boost to your energy and satiety level! Grapes are associated with improved blood sugar control, in other words, improved insulin regulation/sensitivity. Grapes also have phytochemicals/nutraceuticals that come in the form of resveratrol (found in the skin and flesh of a whole grape). This element is believed to play a role in longevity.
The best part is that this snack serves to replace cravings for something juicy, creamy and overly sweet which tends to usually be high in unnecessary calories that do NOTHING for you! Now you can have a snack that does it all: helps YOU and tastes great.
