Cure for Hunger Pangs

4:00 cookie

What time does your afternoon hunger pang kick in? Debra Holstein, the Westchester mom of three behindThe 4:00 Cookie Company (box of 6 cookies, $15; available at 4oclockcookie.com), say most women start reaching for the sweet stuff around 4pm. Snacking on foods with white flour or refined sugar can cause a spike in blood sugar and trigger more cravings, though; instead, her cookies pack a wholesome and filling punch with ingredients relatively low on the glycemic index, such as whole grains, oats, flax, nuts, bittersweet chocolate, and coconut sugar. Bonus: The cookies clock in at fewer than 200 calories each and are preservative-free. Even better: Every flavor (yup, we tested them all) is scrumptious and satisfying!
