My top Five Snack

My top Five Snack

1. Plain yogurt
yogurt is very rich in calcium, low fat yogurts are good because saturated fats which are bad for cholesterol level are out. I enjoy my low fat plain yogurt by adding cinnamon, sweetener, dried fruits, honey, fresh fruits …the list is endless. Just today I tried out cinnamon, whey protein powder, peanut butter and pinch of sweetener….WOW…its just very yummy. 100 g of my low fat plain yogurt is 46 calories…I normally eat 200 g.
2. Carrot and hummus
whether carrot or any sliced veggy like cucumber goes well with hummus. its very easy to make, 1 tablespoon hummus is just 27 calories

3. Melba toast and low fat cheese

Melba toast is dry, thin crisp bread. I love it with either peanut butter or cheese.  Especially laughing cow light cheese. 6 melba toast is just 72 calories plus 25 calories light cheese, not bad for a snack.

4. Fruits and nuts  like apple, orange, berries, almond, peanut etc. My favorite is almond nut, I eat it sometimes with apple and its filling too. A serving of almond nut is 20 to 25 almonds (1 oz or 1/4 cup) which is 164 calories.
5. Granola bar 1 bar has a calorie of 120 to 124 depending on the type, I prefer homemade that way I can reduce the sweetness and oil. Granola bars are good and filling just like oatmeal
