While many of us are trying to eat healthier these days, we can still enjoy treats! To satisfy your sweet tooth and stave off cravings, nosh on 1/2 cup of natural fruit sorbet or a couple of dried figs or dates with 1 tablespoon of nut butter. The combination of natural sweets in fruit and the fat and protein in the nut butter dampens hunger and cravings for up to 3 hours. In fact, researchers at Harvard University found that this can reduce snacking by 81% and cut overall calorie intake by 16%!

I love dates and dried figs. Good to know that adding the nut butter makes it a “complete” snack. I’ll try this. Thanks
