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:
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.
