Pickles Pack a Hunger-Busting Punch!

Who says healthy snacking has to be boring? Pickles, with their crisp texture and tangy taste are the perfect low-carb snack to satisfy your cravings, while adding a burst of exciting flavor to your day! These treats are packed with an impressive array of essential nutrients, like potassium, vitamin K, and antioxidants, all while being a good source of fiber, which helps your stomach feel full.

Pickles are made from cucumbers, which are technically, botanically a fruit since they have seeds inside of them, so when your dieting guide says eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, you’ve got a winner when you choose to snack on a pickle!
