For the past 2.5 years, subscribers have shared their ideas for calories-controlled snacks on MyNetDiary's Community Forum. For those of you who are unaware of the Forum or don't have time to browse older posts, you might find these snack ideas helpful. They are loosely sorted into "craving categories." Some snacks are processed foods, whereas others are unprocessed. Most of these snacks are below 200 calories, but you can check by simply looking them up on MyNetDiary. I used specific brand names when subscribers used them. As just a reminder, all members, free and paid, have access to our Community Forum. Crunchy
Air-popped popcorn with: 1 tbsp of low fat whipped butter mixed with 1 tsp of lemon juice; 1 tbsp chopped dried cranberries mixed with 1 tbsp fat-free feta cheese; or 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese
Kashi Go Lean Crunch® cereal
Low calorie Triscuit® crackers with sliced avocado
Low fat animal crackers with 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips
Roasted squash, eggplant, or peppers with spray oil
Roasted chickpeas - dust with spice of choice. This snack is also high in protein.
Roasted kale with spray oil
Zucchini and eggplant sprayed with oil and microwaved (turn every 5 minutes until dark and crunchy)
As you can see, protein is a popular snack ingredient since it wards off hunger for a modest caloric price. Sweet snacks are also a hit and many are combined with protein foods to satisfy both hunger and a sweet tooth. Snacks fit into any eating plan - simply track them to stay within your total calories budget. Meal Planning & Diets->Snacks
