I also love the no sugar added Fudgicles. Dark chocolate is good for the heart and colon. The flavonoids in dark chocolate can assist in helping insulin resistance.

Ginger Snaps,Graham Crackers & animal cracker cookies are low in fat and cholesterol and have a small amount of saturated fats making them a good choice.

Have a hard boiled egg...Eggs Are Loaded with Nutrients & lots of vitamins.

1/2 cup Cottage Cheese and a handful of Matchstick carrots, flaxseeds around 75 calories
An apple... soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps prevent cholesterol buildup.

Tote 3/4 cup of Multi Grain Cheerios ...not just for kids.

3 cups of popcorn no salt, no butter....try Parm or Romano or cinnamon on top of air popped popcorn.....arounf 100 calories

Baby Carrots, slices of cucumber, with 2 tablespoons light ranch dressing or hummus
10 Black Olives stuffed with hummus or reduced fat Laughing Cow Cream Cheese....Black Olives have healthy fats.

An orange for vitamin C, peach, plum, apricot, cherries, berries of all sorts...maybe with some skim milk or Fage 0% Plain Greek Yogurt and add frresh berries to sweeten.

Hi WAISTNOTIME

I buy the no sugar added ice cream Fudgicles.
They're only 40 calories each, very satisfying for my chocolate treat.

Hi everyone! This is my first time posting, so I'm a little nervous!

I'm writing because I want your advice:

Today at TJ's, they were sampling cookies, and I had a piece. I turned over the package only to find out that a cookie not much bigger than a silver dollar was 130 calories. I have no problem having a little treat every so often, but this seemed like a slap in the face. For 130 calories, I could have had more dark chocolate than I'd want, and I would have felt 10x more satisfied. This cookie left me wanting more, and took a big chunk out of my daily calorie intake :(.

This is all a long way of asking, when you feel like having a little treat, what feels the most satisfying for the calories?


Thanks!
