Weekend Snack Options

Weekends are hard on a diet. We’re home. We’re hanging out. We’re playing with the kids. The following snack options are usually good for most diets and provide you with energy while also satisfying your cravings.

Snack Options:

  • Pretzels with a little honey mustard dip
  • Natural or Plain microwave popcorn
  • Baked Tortilla Chips
  • Apple or Orange Slices
  • Strawberries
  • Raw veggies (like carrots) with light or fat free ranch dip
  • Light Yogurt
  • Low Fat Chocolate Milk
  • Cottage Cheese with Pineapple
  • Low Fat Yogurt Smoothie (You can make it with some yogurt, low fat or skim milk, fresh fruit and ice in a blender – it’s DELICIOUS!)

When checking out your snack options, thinking ahead means you don’t have to worry about getting too hungry or indulging in a binging urge!
