January 7, 2013
Enjoy 3 ½ cups of air-popped popcorn for only 100 calories.
Try strawberries on a log: Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on a celery stalk, and top with half a cup of sliced strawberries for a sweet treat with less sugar.
Give chips and dip a run for its money. Try dipping 1 cup of baby carrots into a simple tzatziki sauce. Simply mix half a cup of plain yogurt, half of a chopped cucumber, and 1 teaspoon of dill for a snack around 200 calories.
For a refreshing snack, try slathering two small wedges of spreadable cheese on a sliced cucumber for around 150 calories.
Try making your own pita chips so you can control the amount of oil and salt, making them healthier than the store-bought brands. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut four pitas into eight wedges each and arrange on a baking sheet. Brush with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 teaspoons of whatever herbs you like (Italian seasoning, for example) and bake for six to 10 minutes. Enjoy eight chips for 120 calories.
