100-calorie (or less) filling snacks

When our stomach starts rumbling, and it’s not mealtime, a low-calorie snack can put those hunger pangs to rest. Here are some faves of mine that “weigh-in” at 100 calories or less: 


v     Healthy Choice® Soup (many of these are around 100 calories) 

v     A piece of low-fat string cheese 

v     Half-a-cup of 1% milk and half a graham cracker 

v     10 pieces of Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps (wild blueberry)® 

v     Half a shaved lean ham sandwich, spread with spicy mustard 

v     ¼ cup 1% milkfat cottage cheese topped with a bit of mandarin oranges 

v     Slice of cinnamon toast 

v     A medium banana 

v     Yoplait Light Smoothie® 

v     ½ cup of V-8 juice® with a couple of pieces of melba toast 


If we allow ourselves to become overly hungry, we’re likely to overeat when we sit down for our meal. These treats handily take the edge off my hunger. What are some of your favorite snacks that tide you over until mealtime or bedtime? 


Thought for the day:  

“The decisions we make today – wise or unwise – will be part of our tomorrows.”
