Fresh Vegetables and Dip

"I always recommend fresh veggies whenever possible, so options like carrots, sliced cucumber, zucchini slices, raw broccoli, and tomatoes," Samantha told POPSUGAR. Pair them with a healthy fat like guacamole or an avocado oil or olive oil-based salad dressing to keep you full. Adrien Paczosa, RD, LD, founder of iLiveWell Nutrition, recommended parsing your fresh veggies into bags or containers during meal prep along with a couple scoops of hummus or yogurt dip. It's "the easiest way to get in some fiber and veggies daily," Adrien said.
