Favorite Snacks of 2009!

Posted Aug 11 2009 8:17am

What are your favorite snacks? During the school year I don’t tend to switch things up usually AT ALL. I basically eat the same breakfast, lunch and snacks from Monday to Friday, September to June. My snacks of choice are Fiber One chocolate bars and jello (besides fruit, I get whatever is available). During the summer I may branch out to the 100 calorie pack chocolate covered pretzels (I LOVE chocolate covered pretzels!!).

I found this list in SHAPE magazine and I realized how boring I am. They broke the snacks up by under 100 calories, under 150 calories, and under 200 calories.

This is what Shape.Com says Makes a Product a Shape Best-Snack Winner

 

  • - 200 calories or less (except the mini meals)

  • - 0 grams of trans fat and no more than 3.5 grams of saturated fat

  • - No more than 400 milligrams of sodium (except mini meals)

  • - No high-fructose corn syrup

  • - Calorie-controlled portions, whole grains, little added sugar, and extra vitamins or minerals all got special consideration

 

Some of my fav’s:

 

  • Jello
  • 100 calorie pack almonds (if you don’t portion control, its SO easy to eat 500 calories worth)
  • Kashi TLC 100 calorie packs
  • SunChips (family fav)

Have you ever tried any of these? Which ones are your favorite? Do you eat the same snacks every day like me?

Note: You can buy the big boxes/containers of almonds and Kashi crackers and just split them up yourself, its SO much cheaper!!
