Bagel with Peanut Butter
Becky Luigart-Stayner

Bagel with Peanut Butter

Watch out for low-fat claims. Low-fat does not necessarily mean low-calorie. The label can give you a sense of false security, setting off over-eating. Treat low-fat foods like any others, and enjoy them in moderation. And remember, in some cases, such as peanut butter, the reduced-fat version is not necessarily healthier.

Mood-Boosting Snack: Half a 100% whole-grain bagel with 1 tablespoon peanut butter (240 calories)

Benefits: Carbohydrates trigger the release of feel-good chemicals. Pick quality carbs, like whole grains with fiber, for a longer-lasting high.
