Apples

How do you like dem apples! These little beauts rank number one on our list of satiating foods. Apples contain a secret-weapon when it comes to slowing digestion and creating that full feeling for longer—it’s called pectin. According to nutritionists at Tufts University, pectin in a whole apple is more filling than the equivalent amount of fruit in juice.

Own Your Single-mom Status

Angela Benton is the founder and CEO of NewME. Since launching in 2011, NewME has accelerated over 300 startups and helped them raise over $17 million in venture capital funding. Her advice: “Being a single mom is NOT a setback. Nestled somewhere in the pages of a storybook is the idea that entrepreneurs “hustle,” “crush it,” “grind” and whatever other word you can come up with to describe working really, really hard on your business 100 percent of the time.

I don’t know about you but I’d put my money on someone with these skills rather than a new college grad.”
