Snack Attack…

I love snacks salty are the best but I have to watch myself because they can get me into trouble.  There is nothing wrong with having a snack like pita chips, or tortilla chips, or even popcorn.  You just have to be aware of how much you are eating, something I never used to do.  A serving size of tortilla chips is about 10 chips and can be around 140 calories which isn’t too bad for a chip, but I would catch myself blindly eating handfuls of them and then you have to guess as to how much you are really eating.  So I started to literally count them out and that way I know how many calories I am eating.

This is one of my favorite snacks, guacamole and reduced fat tortilla chips.  I usually just make my own guacamole because I usually always have avocados.  For some reason they are never ripe when I want half of one and then I have 3 ripe at once so this is a great way to use up ripe avocados and its delicious!

Recipe

3 Ripe Avocados

1-2 Small Vine Ripe Tomatoes

1/2 Lemon Juiced

Garlic Powder, Salt, & Pepper to taste

*Mash it all up in a bowl to your desired consistency!IMG_4948 IMG_4949Another one of my go-to snacks that I eat several times a week is popcorn.  This is hands down my fave snack of all time.  If you get the urge to snack on something at night like I do then this is perfect because it can be very low in calories and you can flavor it however you like!  I always use an air popper to make mine from white corn so there is no added fat or oil.  After it’s done popping I use a misto olive oil sprayer to add a little extra virgin olive oil.  Then I top it with sea salt and a little cayenne pepper for a little kick!  My husband uses a non-fat butter spray and white cheddar flavoring powder that has like no calories.  There are so many different options and for about 7 cups of popcorn its under 150 calories.

Fruit is the fastest food and best snack you can have in my opinion.  If I am starving or I will be out all day I always make sure to grab an apple, banana, or grapes.  They aren’t that messy to eat in the car and can be very filling.  A medium apple, cup of grapes, and banana are all around 100 calories and make a perfect snack on the go!

Happy Snacking!
