Better Choices…

Here are a list of foods that would be a better choice to control hunger.

  • Acorn Squash: Rich in vitamin A so it boosts the immune system and helps eyesight. Even though it’s sweet for squash it does not increase blood sugar and it is a fantastic source of fiber. I love to cook these in the oven and fill them with vegetable chili or stew.
  • Avocado: Offers healthy fats, monounsaturated, which helps to keep hunger at bay and to feel more satisfied. I enjoy having avocado toast as a nice change for breakfast. I notice when I eat that I feel satisfied for hours.
  • Rainbow Carrots: A colorful sweet food that is really low in sugar. They are high in antioxidants (beta-carotenes and hycopene) which is linked to lowering risks of some cancers. I eat these all the time, I like them cooked or raw. If I cook them I add a little cumin and salt they’re very good.
  • Mozzarella Cheese: A great cheese to eat with tomato and basil (I ate a caprese salad the other day) it is high in protein and low in fat (even for the full fat variety). Turns out, that people who eat the full fat mozzarella cheese are less likely to be obese.

So those are my recommendations for today. If your wondering where I got my facts, Time Special Edition 100 Healthiest Foods to Satisfy Your Hunger.
