Did you know you should have a little protein at every meal and every snack? Even if you eat an apple, add 2 or 3 almonds, a spoonful of fat-free plain yogurt, etc. This is especially important for diabetics but is good advice for anyone. This will even help you control your weight as protein helps to stabilize your blood sugar and helps to stave off those horrid hunger pangs. Some good sources of protein are lean meats, eggs, nuts, tofu, low-fat cheese, fat-free plain yogurt, etc.
