Healthy, Low Calorie Snacks – 100 Calorie Snack Ideas

Think it’s hard to find good snack foods that don’t have too many calories?  We have some ideas for good, healthy, low calorie snacks and food that you won’t regret eating.

Confession: When I get hungry, I just grab whatever looks good and eat it. I don’t do a lot of thinking about what I eat because I am either too busy or I am just eating the cold chicken nuggets left over from my kids lunch. Ew.  I usually don’t have time to think about how many calories I am eating and over the last few weeks I realized how many extra calories I consume just because I am choosing to not be aware. Therefore I compiled this list of 100 calorie healthy food snacks. When I am hungry, I choose something on this list and I feel better about my choice. Here it is in all its glory: (keep in mind these are just snacks that I put on my list because I generally have these around my house.)
