Protein-packed sweet treat

If you are craving a sweet treat that will satiate your hunger try Planters NUT•rition Sustaining Energy Mixes. I recently tried the envelopes of honey roasted peanuts, almonds, and soy clusters.  At 250 calories a serving they contain 10 grams of protein, a good source of fiber and a good source of four vitamins and minerals. Protein is what you need to keep hunger at bay.
 
There are three flavours: Apple Cinnamon, Chocolate Nut, and Honey Nut. I found the apple slices too chewy, but the other two flavours were delicious.
 
Many studies show that women who eat nuts as part of healthy diet have an easier time losing weight and keeping it off.  But 250 calories is too much for snacks for most women – and the snack is high in sugar.  I recommend dividing the package into two portions to be eaten with half an apple or other fresh fruit.
