Snack Smart. Your body will thank you!

Chances are, at some point during your day you’re going to want a snack. Your energy level might be low, your stomach might be empty, or you just might want to munch on something while you take a break.

Before you reach for that can of cola, consider grabbing a cup of Greek yogurt with fruit instead! Packed with filling protein, you can find plenty of inexpensive, prepackaged Greek Yogurt + Fruit at your local supermarket.

Cut even more calories by choosing 2% or 0% (non-fat) Greek yogurt, or by choosing plain Greek yogurt instead of yogurt + fruit.

The protein in Greek yogurt makes you feel more full and requires more energy to digest. You’ll avoid the sugar crash that can come with high sugar drinks, and the feeling of fullness will help you get further before you feel the urge to snack again!

Snack smart and your body will thank you!
