Interested in eating healthier, but worry that you’ll end up hungry again in an hour or so? Sometimes we think that healthy foods will not cure our daily hunger cravings, but there’s a few foods that taste great and keep you full until the next meal time!
Chickpeas, lentils, peas, and black beans all offer strong sources of fiber and B vitamins. Whether you add them to a salad, pasta dish, or soup, they are a great item to include in your everyday diet.
Not only are they very filling, but they are a high source of protein and amino acids with lower calories than a bagel or cereal. Since they can be cooked in many different ways and added to meals, they are easy to eat daily!
This cruciferous vegetable contains high levels of glucoraphanin, calcium, and Vitamins A, B, C, E, and K that aid your body in detoxifying better and faster. This veggie also helps prevent against certain types of cancer and supports heart health.
Yogurt has probiotics, or good bacteria, that can help with your gut health. Greek yogurt is thicker and contains less sugars than regular yogurt. Dress up your snack with fruit, granola, or add it into recipes to thicken up sauces or dressings.
Sprinkle these on top of cereal, toast, or yogurt to add in extra fiber to your diet. They can also be baked into recipes, which can help in digestive areas, heart disease, and cholesterol levels.
Fish like salmon, trout, and mackerel have high omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower anti-inflammatory effects. So, if you have arthritis or osteoarthritis, adding fish into your diet can help to lower your joint pain levels and keep you full for longer!
