When nothing but the sweet flavor of fruit will do, your best bet is to give in. But play it smart—grab something with plenty of protein and fiber to fill you up and keep you satisfied. The Cherry Almond Bar has eight, full grams of protein and it’s studded with perfect, sweet cherries. As the name indicates, there are almonds, too, but what you might not notice is the walnuts, peanuts and coconut: Delicious!

Cinnamon bun for lunch? Let’s face it, when the question is whether or not to cinnamon bun, the answer is always yes—especially if it’s completely coated in a yogurt and vanilla goodness.

Well, it is, and it’s approved for any South Beach Diet phase. That’s why this sweet pick scored a spot on the most popular list, friend. Click here to make it yours >
It’s pretty much cake. Only the kind of mouthwatering, chocolate cakes you can eat for breakfast and not feel bad about, even for a second. They’re rich and moist thanks to creamy ricotta, but a serving of these Dark Chocolate Ricotta Muffins contains an unbelievable 13 grams of protein. Let’s call this a health win, because when you can start your day guilt-free with chocolate, you can be fairly certain it’s going to be a great day. Click here to make it yours >
