Between Meal Snacks


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I used to eat oatmeal cookies for snacks. I thought maybe even the oatmeal was good for me. Once I started to diet, I realized I was snacking on 225 calories of cookie!

I started keeping a basket of grape tomatos around, and I pop one or two of them when I feel the need for a snack. Calorie difference? A grape tomato is 2 calories.
