#1  Carrots sticks + Tahini

Carrots are very hydrating and tahini contains more protein than milk and nuts.

#2  Brazil nuts + Figs

Brazil nuts can boost your immune system and are high in selenium while figs are a good source of magnesium

#3  Wild Blueberry Smoothie

At just 210 calories, this is a filling and nutritious weight loss snack. Blend together 1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries, half a frozen banana, 1/3 cup low-fat milk, and 4 ounces low-fat plain Greek yogurt.

#4  Tomato and Cucumber Salad

The high water content of both of these will keep you satisfied. Try equal parts of each. Need some added flavor add in a little balsamic vinegar.

#5  Natural Peanut Butter + Ezekiel Bread

Natural nut butter is high in protein and Ezekiel bread is made with sprouted grains and legumes (great protein source).
