Low calorie snacks are great, but for those people (like me) who need to know the sodium content as well, all I see are foods to avoid and information I have to hunt for in order to determine whether these snacks really would work for me in the long run. I allow myself one cheat meal per week where I can eat something regardless of the sodium content, otherwise I need to track it diligently. The Nutrition Tracker on SparkPeople is an *awesome* tool for that and I try to use it daily. But if my snack has as much sodium in it as my dinner does then I feel likes it's defeating the purpose, just a wee bit. ;)
I take about a half cup of cottage cheese and mix in about a tsp of cinnamon and a tiny bit of some sweetener. Then I add a couple a tablespoon or two of slivered almonds....makes a delicious low calorie high protein snack.
