Selected for you this week: a nutrition tip from Registered Dietitian to combine foods, such as fruit and yogurt, as a satisfying snack. Every week, we bring you valuable quotes from around the web on yogurt.

“Combining foods is so important for increasing your metabolism and controlling hunger better” says Sarah Koszyk, MA, RDN, sports dietitian and weight management specialist, founder of Family. Food. Fiesta.

” “When you combine foods such as a carbohydrate and protein, you will feel more full and satisfied than if you just ate one of the foods by itself. For example, have you ever eaten a fruit and still felt hungry? Add some peanut butter, almond butter, nuts, cheese, or yogurt to the fruit and you are a happy camper. When it comes to food combinations, an easy rule of thumb is to remember to eat at least 2 food groups for a hearty, satisfying snack. Double the pleasure. Double the benefits.
