Healthy Snacks

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Some reminders for myself on snacking:

Throw the Fritos away!

Drink water first. Maybe you're just thirsty.

Have apple slices instead of chips.

Cheese & crackers are good, but limit this to low fat cheese & make a small plate. when the plate is empty the snack is over!

Carrot sticks with hummus take awhile to eat & are very satisfying. ymmm

A small handful of nuts. Again, stop after the one handful.

Pretzel sticks. Count them out & have a small dish of mustard to dip them in.

An orange will often cure my cravings for fatty snack foods. Not sure why.

A piece of toast with one tbl of peanut butter is very satisfying.

A cup of cucumber slices only has about 15 calories! That is a lot of cucumber slices. You can have a little low fat ranch with it.

Have another glass of water.
