Joey and I started Weight Watchers at just the time - Springtime! With all these fruits and vegetables coming into season we can alway find something healthy and delicious to snack on. My favorite snack has been Cuties. What's a Cutie, you ask? Well, Joey's my cutie but California Cuties are actually two different fruits: Clementine mandarins and Murcott mandarins. Clementine mandarins are harvested from mid-October through mid-January; Murcott mandarins from mid-January through April, though they are still selling them in the markets. They come in 3 or 5 pound bags and are about $1.00 a pound here in California.
Cuties are perfect for me because they are easy to carry, easy to peal and are packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber! Just two provide me with all my vitamin C and have 4 grams of fiber, which helps curb hunger. I probably eat about six of these little guys throughout the day when I am at work. It has really helped me resists the jars of Jelly Bellies and M&Ms that are all over the office!
So, if you need a healthy snack, I would pick some of these up soon before they are gone for the season! They are the perfect snack and at zero points are the perfect choice for someone on Weight Watchers.
