1. Carrots and hummus
This classic combo is a perfect pair that offers great nutrition. Livestrong.com mentions carrots are great for weight management because of their fiber content, which helps keep you full longer and also controls blood sugar levels. Plus, they’re packed with vitamins that help maintain eye health, bone strength, and keep your immune system healthy. As for hummus, it’ll give you even more fiber, plus a bit of protein. A 2-tablespoon serving of Classic Sabra Hummus, for example, will give you 2 grams of protein and 1 gram of fiber for just 70 calories.
