be a peanut butter nutter 

recent studies from the british journal of nutrition have shown that adding peanut butter to your breakfast can control cravings for up to 12 hours (something to do with it giving you hormones that make you feel full) try meridian natural peanut butter as it's 100% peanut!

i love mine smeared all over celery sticks :)

cherry good for you!!  

as i've touched on in the past certain fruits, especially cherries, contain naturally occuring melatonin which helps you sleep 

cherries are also an effective antioxidant and contain anthocyanins which reduce inflammation (amongst lots of other benefits) so helps with recovery after exercise....

a great thing i have been using recently is cherry active which is 100% natural montmorency cherry juice. i simply have the concentrate with water after a workout and sometimes add to natural yoghurt to give it a delicious flavour - it also comes in capsules and dried fruit form!
