Everyday when 3:00pm hits I want to follow the office crowd to the coffee shop for a big chocolate brownie, the vending machine for a bag of crispy chips, or anywhere else when snack foods lay in waiting. Hunger has hit me and I know it won't go away until I eat as much snack food as I get my hands on.
The only problem with snack foods are that they usually have a few more calories than the choice of an apple I usually settle on for snacking. And the only problem with apples is that they usually don't taste quite as good as snack foods....
But I have discovered a few snack foods that don't make me cringe when I see the calorie count and they all taste much better than apples!
Nature Valley Granola Thins have the crispiness I love and come in the chocolate or peanut butter flavours I crave. Plus, they have only 90 calories!
Fibre 1 Brownies come in both chocolate fudge or chocolate peanut butter flavours and celebrate simple deliciousness. Plus, they have only 110 calories!
And I've saved what I think is the best for last. Fibre 1 Chocolate Caramel and Pretzel Bars encompass my holy trinity of chocolate, caramel, and pretzels. Plus, you'll eat 20% of your recommended daily fibre and only consume 100 calories!
These treats show me that the dilemma of choosing between taste and staying healthy is over. I know I will be indulging on a regular basis!
