Chicken Soup For The Cravings (without The Calories)
Members Were Sparked
When I'm craving I grab a chicken Bouillon cube and heat up a hot mug of water. It's like having chicken soup without the noodles and chicken. It's filling, comforting, and satisfying. It is made by dehydrating vegetables, meat stock, a very small portion of fat, salt and seasonings. Plus you get that extra water in there!!
I wouldn't recommend if you already have a large amount of salt in your diet though.

Satisfy that chocolate craving without the excess calories.
My girlfriend clued me in on freezing a bag of the Ghiradelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chips. Just eat 3, maybe 6. The benefit of dark chocolate and it's best to just let these dissolve for a while in your mouth, otherwise you can crack your teeth!
These soups range from 40-80 calories depending on the flavors. My favorite is the Creamy Chicken & Chicken Noodle. Other flavors that I have tried are Spring Vegetable, Tomato & Hearty Chicken Noodle. They have really helped me get through those "salty cravings" in the afternoon without breaking the calorie bank. They are inexpensive and can be found in the instant soup isle of your grocery store. If you have a water cooler that dispenses hot water....this is a really quick solution.
Downside: Like most soups the sodium is high, so plan on drinking extra water. It also seems as though the packaging and flavors available may be different depending on which area of the country you live in.
