CIT­RUS CRISPS

Your new af­ter­noon pick- me- up

Eat­ing be­tween meals should feel in­ten­tional, not mind­less. Aim for 150 to 200 calo­ries and a bal­ance of pro­tein and fiber, then get creative. Seeds, like the shelled hemp on this nut-butter-slathered ba­nana, or the chia in our rasp­berry ap­ple­sauce, con­trib­ute heart-healthy fats and omega- 3 fatty acids, plus pro­tein, fiber, and iron. Crispy oven- dried cit­rus slices (our low- and- slow method mellows any bit­ter­ness from the skin) are ir­re­sistible dipped in cot­tage cheese, and last up to a month in an air­tight con­tainer. Even gua­camole, full of healthy fats that make your skin glow, tastes new and ex­cit­ing with crunchy roasted sea­weed flakes. “I love nori,” says Mia Syn, an RD in Charleston, South Carolina. “It’s one of the only nat­u­ral sources of io­dine, which is im­por­tant for thy­roid health.”
