High in fiber and packed with disease-fighting antioxidants and other nutrients: that describes blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries—those naturally sweet and filling snacks that taste so good over hot cereal or mixed into yogurt. Buy them fresh in season or frozen all year round. The latter make the perfect addition to a lunchtime smoothie, which can energize you, fill you up, and keep your calorie intake on track all at the same time. And, instead of reaching for a cookie, reach for a berry. Your scale will thank you.
