Berries for snacks
Berries are disease-fighting wonders. Full of the good stuff like vitamin C, folate, fiber and phytonutrients, berries are like food superheroes, only, you know, without the capes. Pair them with lean proteins for a berry filling, berry tasty snack, like one of these:Top high-protein vanilla Greek yogurt with 1 cup of microwave berries, then top with a little reduced-fat Reddi-wip. (Tip: Freeze the yogurt for an hour first.)Add 1 cup of berries to a high-protein cereal with skim or soy milk. Top plain Greek yogurt with 1 cup of mixed berries and a handful of nuts for an ideal, balanced breakfast. Create your own trail mix with freeze-dried berries and raw almonds or walnuts.
