Top Ten 100 Calorie Snacks

Top Ten 100 Calorie Snacks

March 12, 2013   5 Comments

100 is a magical number for some people. An entire snack product industry is based on this concept of a 100 calorie snack.

I think that for dieters, 100 calorie snacks are great because they are pre-portioned. Hey, you know what you are getting! The problem is that many of the packaged snacks in this category aren't nutritious and they taste....well....yucky.

In fact, I nominated a 100 Calorie snack pack for "Worst Snack of The Year in 2010" see here: The Worst Snack of 2010.


Seriously, does that package up there look appetizing?

If you want to keep your snack around 100 calories (which is a perfectly reasonable idea), you have many options other than this ugly package of junk food.

I have created a list of over 163- under 100 calorie options here: - And, yes, you have to make these snacks :(

Why make your own?

  • You will save money (those 100 calorie snack packs are not cheap).
  • They will taste good.
  • You will become greener (less packaging).

And, you will honor your body by making a NUTRITIOUS snack.

I chose these 10 because they are my favorite 100 calorie snacks - and they represent a nice variety of foods you could eat:

1. Healthy Cookie Dough Dip Recipe Eating Cookie Dough Just Got Healthier

2. Easy Feta Dip Recipe Take Your Raw Veggies To the Next Level

3. carrotbiteb Create A Better Snack With Carrots

4. rootbeerfloatb A Lot Less Float For Your Boat (Awesome 53 Calorie Dessert)

5. Sugar Snap Peas and Cheese Elegant, Easy, and Under 100 Calories

6. No Bake Lemon Balls Recipe No Bake Lemon Balls: Healthy, Fast, & Yummy

7. Best Yogurt Brand The Best Brand of Yogurt You Can Buy

8. portabellomushroompizzab A 100 Calorie Pizza That Will Rock Your Sox

100 calorie package snacks are so full of sugar. You have great ideas to try instead and will be kinder to your body. I hope this opens some eyes that with a little effort you can easily eat something healthy and lose weight in the mean time.
