Ever find yourself snacking just after supper, or lunch? You pick a little here and a little there, and before you know it your snacking has turned into another meal. Maybe your previous meal did not leave you full and satisfied. Enter the fullness equation!
Having meals that contain both fibre & protein helps us feel fuller longer. That everything bagel with cream cheese from Tim’s is lacking in both those departments, and by 10 a.m. you are dozing at your desk reaching for your snack drawer-because we all have that snack drawer!
Fibre is found in whole grains, fruits & vegetables. Protein is found in animal products, along with beans and lentils. Pair both together for a meal that will satisfy the fullness equation!
