Yes, just when I am trying to eat better with the New Year, I seem to keep migrating to the kitchen after dinner way to much, ahh! What can I eat?
Here are a few items that satisfy both my sweet and salty tooth.
Snack Better® Sahale Snacks Glazed nuts – yummy, just make sure you pre-portion them into little snack bags. I had these in my car as I was starving and it was a good thing there were not many left!
Here are my two favorites! A nice balance of sweetness with crunch! Plus great amount of healthy fats to help fill you up! Good fat that sticks to your belly!
Oh yes! Almonds with a touch of dark chocolate and the best of all they come in 100 calorie packs! Whoohoo!
Some nutritional highlights – Only 0.5g saturated with 2 g polyunsaturated (healthy) and 5 g monounsaturated (even healthier) plus 2 g fiber; 3 g protein and 20% super antioxidant vitamin E! This product does contain some artificial sweeteners which I don’t care for but ok in moderate amounts.
Try this filling snack with a ton of protein – soy protein that is!
Other types of roasted edamame products that I have tried are not very good and I usually have to choke them down because they are so dry and so unflavorful but this product is actually pretty good! They seem to be a bit lighter and crispier than other products. I would probably add a couple of golden raisins to enhance the flavor.
The awesome thing is – they contain 14 grams of protein for 1/4 cup and only 140 calories! Low in sodium and good source of fiber, the perfect snack!
