Snack attack

Posted 10/16/2012 | By HealthCorps

Snacks are supposed to be small feedings that fill in between meals.  Choices should range between 80 and 150 calories, and most of the time you should choose a combination of ingredients that will stabilize blood sugar, satiate, and obviously taste good. Here are some smart bites that qualify as superstar snacks:

  • A thin slice of whole grain toast spread with ¼ cup ricotta cheese and cinnamon
  • Three cups of air popped popcorn and a small wedge of light (low fat) cheese
  • A small fat free Greek yogurt mixed with ¼ cup chopped pineapple and 2 teaspoons chopped nuts
  • A hard boiled egg and a small cup of fat free pudding
  • A small handful of dried fruit and nuts
  • Half a small baked potato with salsa and 2 teaspoons of pine nuts
  • A small handful of walnuts and a plum
  • A rice cake with 1 tablespoon of nut butter (peanut, almond or soy) and a sprinkle of raisins
