Low-calorie snacks that fill you up

Pairing a protein or healthy-fat choice with a veggie, fruit, or whole grain is a great way to have variety and also keep you full longer. Because they are digested more slowly, protein and fat stay with you longer than carbs.This does the job to keep you satisfied until your next meal. Also, choosing healthy snacks instead of junk food punches up your nutrition for the day.
