Satisfy your sweet tooth and manage your hunger pangs without feeling weighed down. With plenty of fiber, protein and antioxidants, this fruity treat may become your favorite guilt-free snack. Pomegranate hint: Cut the fruit in half, hold over a bowl and pound the outside of the fruit with a wooden spoon. Most of the seeds will pop out easily.
