Yeah, this is diversion from the yummy recipes I've been posting. But I thought as I have an extra Wednesday in this month, I'd post something out of the normal.
First, I'd like to congratulate MelPrincess for winning the drawing for the Cooking in the South with Johnnie Gabriel cookbook from me and $10 Amazon.com gift certificate from Hanna Rhys. And thanks to everyone who posted recipes this month. Be sure to look for them in the future when I use some for my Wednesday's Chow posts.
Here's a list of 100-calorie snacks to help fill you up so you stay away from those delicious but high calorie Oreo Cookies. It's suggested to have 2-3 snacks a day to help keep yourself from over-eating at meals.......
1 fat-free chocolate pudding cup
2 fig bars
1 slice whole wheat bread with 1 oz of turkey breast
10 almonds or cashews
1 hard boiled egg with 1/2 slice toasted whole wheat bread
1/4 cup fat-free ranch dressing with mixed raw veggies
An orange and a few dry-roasted nuts
1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese and 1 cup sliced strawberries
1 small baked potato with 1/2 cup salsa and 2 tablespoons of fat-free sour cream
20 animal crackers
1 oz mozzarella string cheese and 4 green olives
1 cup chicken noodle soup with 2 crackers
2 large graham cracker squares with 1 teaspoon peanut butter
1/2 cup applesauce

What's your favorite snack (low cal or otherwise)? I admit, I like Oreo cookies with milk.
