I came across a video (below) of people trying 100 calorie packs of snacks and being pretty angry about the lack of taste or lack of actual food (lol!) so I wanted to offer you some ideas for what you can eat that will:
1. Actually taste good
2. Fill you up
3. Help you lose or maintain your weight
Cottage Cheese and Cantaloupe
Top 1/2 cup of low-fat cottage cheese with 1/2 cup of diced cantaloupe. That 1/2 cup of cantaloupe delivers 50 percent of the daily recommended values of vitamins A and C—two vitamins that may help promote clear skin.
Egg Whites and Toast
Toast one slice whole-wheat bread and top with two scrambled egg whites. Sprinkle with a dash of pepper and paprika.5.
Red Pepper and Goat Cheese
Slice up one medium red pepper and enjoy with 2 tablespoons soft goat cheese. Goat cheese is tangy and flavorful, has about one third fewer calories and one third the fat per ounce compared to cow’s milk cheese.
Carrots and Hummus
Chow down on 10 baby carrots with 2 tablespoons hummus. Jazz it up with fresh herbs like dill or parsley.
Apples and Cheese
Pair a Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light cheese wheel with half a baseball-sized apple, sliced. The cheese has six grams of protein and 20 percent of the daily recommended value of calcium.
14 Almonds
Almonds don’t need any extras to be a satisfying snack. Added bonus: They’re the most nutritionally dense nut (which means they have the highest concentration of nutrients per calorie).
@EdenMMercedes Wow, I honestly never even thought about the difference between peppers!? And I definitely never noticed a difference, You taught me something new today :)
the male red peppers are best for snacking this way because they don't have many seeds and are more crisp and flavorful. They only have three nubs on the bottom where as females have four. females work best in sauted dishes.
