Greek yogurt with berries
Greek yogurt or Skyr offers a balanced (not to mention satisfying) protein-carb-fat trifecta, which helps keep your blood sugar levels stable, says Stefanski. Pro tip: “If you opt for full fat, watch the portion,” says Stefanski, who recommends capping it at 1/2 to 1 cup (or 4 to 8 ounces), depending on the calorie level you’re going for. “Choose plain Greek yogurt and add 1/4 cup of berries and some liquid stevia if sweetness is what you’re looking for. Add chia or flax seeds for crunch.” If you opt for a yogurt like Siggi’s, one serving is just 12 grams of carbs.
Edamame is like a perfectly balanced snack in its own natural package. These whole immature soybeans are available shelled, in the pod, fresh or frozen depending on your snacking needs. A 1/2 cup serving of shelled edamame offers 9 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber for only 110 calories and 8 grams of carbs. A 1/3 cup of pre-packed roasted edamame contains a whopping 14 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, and only 130 calories for a non-perishable blood sugar-stabilizing snack to keep in your desk, gym bag, or backpack.
