10 Delicious Food Duos Under 150 Calories

And Add 7 Walnut Halves

They’re a rich source of fiber, magnesium, abundant omega-3s and protein. Skip salted, oil-roasted or smoked nuts and you’ll have an easy, portable snack that requires no refrigeration.

    4. Start with Yogurt…

    A tablespoon of peanut or almond butter stirred into cottage cheese gives you extra protein, plus omega-3 fats, vitamin E and magnesium. It makes a satisfying snack (really! don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!) that will keep you satiated until your next meal.

    5. And Add Almonds

    Half a dozen whole almonds will slow digestion, which eases rises in blood sugar. Choose a chocolate bar with 70 percent or more cacao.

    6. And Add Lemon

    Okay, it sounds weird, but give it a try: Stir one teaspoon of sugar-free lemon Jell-O powder into the cottage cheese, and allow the mixture to set for three hours in fridge. When you’re ready for a snack, top with two tablespoons of fat-free whipped cream.

    7. Start with a Banana…

    Bananas are packed with potassium. Slice half a small one into “coins.”
