When you want to lose weight, clean eating snacks are a smart choice. To get the maximum benefit, the first step is to do a clean sweep of the kitchen and pantry to eliminate unhealthy choices. Then make these low-calorie snacks a regular part of your shopping list. You’ll find it’s easier to stick to healthy choices when nutritious foods are within reach. Remember to tuck snacks, like dried fruit and nut mix, into your purse or bag so you can quell hunger whenever it hits, whether it’s during the mid-afternoon office lull or after yoga class.
1. Apples. You cannot go wrong with apples. They help lower cholesterol by regulating blood sugar and by helping to control the appetite. Eat them fresh or enjoy them in easy-to-make Baked Apple Chips.
