I have been craving crunchy things!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I found this article and looking back I actually have been eating some of these.

If you're accustomed to snacking on chips and pretzels, you probably like some crunch when you munch. Nuts are a delicious go-to choice, but they're not your only crunchy snack option! Here are some other healthy nibbles to add to your snacking repertoire:

Raw veggies, including celery, green or red peppers, cauliflower and broccoli florets, served with hummus or a lo-cal dressing
emoticon Dill pickles (seek out the no-sugar-added variety and limit your consumption if you're watching sodium intake)
Edamame (boiled soy beans, sold by the bag in the frozen foods section of most supermarkets)
emoticon Sunflower seeds (count these toward your daily nut/seed allowance)

Soy nuts
Carrot sticks
emoticon Whole-wheat crackers --- I say rye crisps or WASA breads!
emoticon High-fiber, low-sugar, whole-grain cereal
Air-popped or microwaveable popcorn (check the label to be sure it doesn't contain trans fats)
emoticon Apple slices
emoticon Frozen grapes
Toasted whole-wheat pita bread, sliced into triangles, with hummus
Toasted whole-wheat tortillas or wraps, sliced into triangles, served with salsa or a bean-based dip
