100 Calorie Snack Packs

When you are on a diet, you need something to grab in a hurry to eat. I make up these little snack bags in those small, snack, zip lock bags. I try to include some sweet, some salty in each one. I buy bags of anything that is small like:


  • Miniature marshmallows, tiny boxes of raisins
  • Ritz crackers, graham crackers (they have small versions of both of these)
  • Animal crackers, those little goldfish crackers, nuts, tiny pretzels
  • Cereals like s'mores, Captain Crunch, fruit loops
  • Chocolate or peanut butter chips
  • Dried fruit like pineapple and papaya
  • Fritos, taco chips and Doritos work too. No potato chips though, they won't hold up.

The sweet and salty works so great together. It is a lot more satisfying than the ones you buy. My DH swears these are one of the reasons he has stayed on his diet.

Each week I make up 7 of these little bags. I put in one or two of each of the things above until I have about 100-200 calories. Once you do this a few times, you want need to count, you will learn how much each item is.

When I get a snack attack, I will grab one of these. I will usually only eat half but just knowing the whole bag is only 200 calories makes me feel good even if I eat the whole thing.


It only takes minutes to make up up and they will taste better than those you buy already made up. A whole lot cheaper too. These are great to grab on your way out the door.
