Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
STOCKING UP - Fill your kitchen with plain or spice popcorn (don't use
Microwave popcorn with added fat), whole grain crackers, unsweetened
Fruit juices, fresh fruit and vegetables, plain low fat yogurt, and low
Fat low sodium cheeses.

PORTABLE FRUIT - Carry a naturally sweet fresh fruit (such as a pear, orange or grapes) for a snack rather than buying candy. SNACKS ARE SNACKS - Snacks should not supplant meals. Make sure you don't spoil dinner by eating too much of a good snack. DIETARY FIBER - What you want out of snacks besides good taste is good fiber. Fresh fruits with edible seeds such as berries or skins (apples, peaches) dried fruits, raw vegetables, and whole grain crackers and bread are all good sources of fiber. BRUSH THOSE TEETH - If you choose a sitcky food such as dried fruit, plan to brush your teeth soon afterwards; otherwise; tooth decay. FRUIT POPS - Blend different types of fruit together in a processor and then freeze the concoction for a healthy snack. YOGURT SAUCES - Make sauces and dips with nonfat plain yogurt as the base. CHIP ALTERNATIVES - Instead of chips, try toasted shredded wheat squares sprinkled with a small amount of grated parmesan cheese, whole grain english muffins, or toasted plain corn tortillas.
