RECIPES HEALTH Trim Treats SIMPLE SLICES (181 CALORIES; 2.4G PROTEIN; 9.5G TOTAL FAT; 25.4G NET CARBOHYDRATES; 17G SUGAR; 2MG SODIUM) Choose healthy alternatives instead of junk food and mid-day binging with these recipes and tips for smart snacking. PUMPKIN PROTEIN SHAKE (220 CALORIES; 25G PROTEIN; 5G TOTAL FAT; 11G NET CARBOHYDRATES; 6G SUGAR; 140MG SODIUM) One quick and easy snack is a sliced apple topped with 1 tbsp. of almond butter. A green Granny Smith’s tart flavor is balanced perfectly with the sweetness of nut butter. 3/4 cup fat-free milk 1/4 cup fat-free half-and-half 1 rounded scoop of vanilla protein powder 1/4 rounded cup of pure pumpkin puree 1/4 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed or frozen 2-3 tablespoons Splenda 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 6 ice cubes, optional In a blender, combine the milk, half-and-half, protein powder, pumpkin, whipped topping, Splenda, spices and ice cubes. Process until smooth and thick. Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Makes one serving. Source: Eating Well…Living Thin TIDBITS Use these tips to avoid afternoon hunger. PHOTOS: ISTOCKPHOTO.COM, (PUMPKIN SHAKE) LINDA FARNSWORTH Load up on H20. Our brains play tricks on us. Are you hungry or just thirsty? Drink a glass of water and wait a few minutes to see. Pay attention to what you eat. Studies have shown that distracted eaters consume more. Eat what you like. If you really want a brownie, but guilt yourself into cottage cheese, won’t you just eat the brownie later? Might as well satisfy the craving and eat a smaller brownie now. Portion your snacks. Don’t leave that big bag of chips around. As soon as you get it home, divide it into individual portions in snack-size baggies that you can easily grab on the go. Think volume, not calories. Snacks full of water, such as grapes, take up much more room in your stomach than pretzels. Snacks don’t have to be snack foods. Half a turkey sandwich hits the 150 to 200 calorie range of a snack but keeps hunger at bay better than a few crackers with cheese.
