DO YOU USUALLY CRAVE SWEET OR SALTY SNACKS?

Do you crave salty or sweet snacks? Try these healthy options for both

TRY THESE HEALTHIER OPTIONS FOR BOTH:

SALTY SNACKS
•    23 almonds (162 calories)
This is our top savory super snack because it offers fiber, heart-healthy fats and vitamin E, which may help your body bounce back post-workout. The nuts also pack alpha-linolenic acid, which revs your body's fat-burning ability.  I like the pre packaged almonds at Trader Joes, toss them in your gym bag, purse, car, briefcase, backpack -
•    5 olives (any kind) (45 calories)
•    1 small hard pretzel (50 calories)
•    1/4 cup hummus, 3 carrot sticks (80 calories) or pita chips
•    1 Wasa Multigrain Crispbread topped with 1 tbsp avocado and 1 tbsp hummus (80 calories) - LOVE this topped with 1 Tbs. Natural Peanut Butter too!  Travels well for fast, easy, healthy snack.

SWEET SNACKS
•    8 oz plain yogurt (110 calories, 0 g fat) recommended: GREEK Yogurt such as Fage Greek Yogurt - higher protein, less carbs and sugar. This get fit food is the ultimate sweet snack. The mix of carbs and protein in lowfat yogurt keep blood sugar level, stave off hunger and helps your body store less fat. Add fresh berries for flavor and a punch of antioxidants and/or handful of almonds.
•    10 frozen grapes (20 calories). Tip: I buy two packages of grapes and freeze one.
