As an inveterate snacker, I have written a number of posts on healthy snacking. Check out my Page – Snacking – The good, the bad and the ugly for more details.
I ran across this infographic on Pinterest and thought you might find the information helpful in your weight control efforts. Remember studies have shown that dieters who grazed on limited calorie snacks every few hours suffered from less hunger pains than the ones who limited themselves to only three meals a day. You don’t have to suffer to lose weight. Be a little thoughtful and you can have your cake and eat it, too … just not too much.
Here is a list of the highlights:
One slice of homemade banana bread = 170 calories
One cup of fat free yogurt and a tablespoon of honey = 160 calories
One square of dark chocolate and one ounce of dried cherries = 155 calories
One 100 calorie whole wheat pita with 2 tablespoons hummus = 170 calories
One serving of pretzels dipped in spicy mustard = 120 calories
Two large hard-boiled eggs = 155 calories
One Cup watermelon cubes sprinkled with feta cheese and chopped dill = 115 calories
