OK, we‘ve snacked on fruits and vegetables and then satisfied our sweet tooth in Part II of the snacks under 100 calories series.
Naturally, the final installment consists of salty-savory snacks to balance things out.
Many of these are perfect to bring on a picnic, or store in your desk drawer at work when the late-afternoon hunger pains kick in,
To get a taste of salt-savory snack relief, consider these tasty treats that won’t expand your waistline too far:
* 60 Baby Goldfish crackers
* 1 Laughing Cow Light Creamy Garlic and Herb cheese wedge and 3 Triscuits.
* 1 string cheese stick
* Rold Gold Classic Style pretzel sticks
* 4 slices of low-fat honey ham rolled in a lettuce leaf topped with 2 teaspoons honey mustard
* 2 tablespoons water=packed tuna with 1 teaspoon light mayonnaise and a dash of onion powder
* 5 ounces tossed salad with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and 1-4 cup fat free dressing
* 1 100 calorie pack of microwave popcorn (3 cups).
There you go, the whole gamut of snack ideas has been covered in this three-part series. Hopefully some of them help you out, or make you think of other low-calorie ideas that will help fill snack-time needs.
