Want to snack without feeling guilty afterward?

“The NPD Group, an Illinois-based market research firm,recently released a study showing that fresh fruit is America’s top choice for snacking – more so than any other sweet or savory option.”

This is a great statistic! “Snacking” doesn’t have to mean a bunch of potato chips or a late night tub of rocky road. Fruit is not only good for you, but can satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you feeling refreshed and energetic.

Fruit doesn’t have to be enjoyed alone either. Choose an apple, banana, or orange, and pair it with a handful of nuts or a spoonful of peanut butter. You’ll not only enjoy it, but you’ll feel full (and guilt free), which will prevent you from reaching for the chocolate chip cookies later on.

The health benefits of fruit are unlimited. Grapefruit, for example, help many people lose weight due to it’s low-caloric properties, and burst of vitamin C.

On your road to a new and healthy you, don’t cut snacking out of your life. Just remember to choose wisely!
