Chocolate, pasta, chips and fruit juice aren’t usually considered diet-friendly foods – but they can be, if you know which types to choose! Next time your stomach is growling, switch out your traditional meal or snack for one of these delicious, flat-tummy favorites:
Satisfy your craving for a sweet temptation with raw cacao nibs. They may not taste like a candy bar, but these raw chocolate bits are free of sugar and full of antioxidants and minerals.
Instead of white pasta…
Cook up a pot of gluten-free buckwheat pasta – it’s high in protein and fiber to keep you feeling full, which means you won’t need to reach for seconds. Mix in fresh herbs and veggies for an extra nutrient boost.
Instead of potato chips…
Chomp down on kale chips. Made from raw, air-crisped kale vegetables, these crunchy delights contain loads of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron.
Instead of juice cocktail..
Wash down your meal with pomegranate juice – it’s packed with polyphenol antioxidants and free of added sugars, artificial flavors, colors and preservatives. Plus, unlike other “juices,” it’s actually made from real fruit!
