We all have cravings for snacks throughout the day. Many of us have them 3,4 or 5 times and we satisfy them to a tune of way too much trans fat, saturated fat and sodium. All of which is bad for you.

Well here it is for you in one place for 50 great snacks all of which are 125 calories or less and without all of the bad stuff.

The test that ultimately produced this for nutrition and flavor involved the testing of 235 products. Many volunteers were enlisted in the testing and these final selections were made.

I found this in my wife’s Good Housekeeping magazine and felt it worth passing on as we all suffer the same way seeking decent snacks. Now you may get rid of the potato chips and have something good.

Additionally I have tried many of these myself and found them to be quite good.
