We all love to snack. But when it comes to most processed snack foods, not only are they packed with calories, they are also void of nutrients. Even if you’re an angel with your snacking options, it can get kind of boring. Sometimes, you need your snack to have a bit more flair to it.
Here are 10 fun healthy snacks that contain 100 calories or less:
1. One-half of a 100-calorie English Muffin topped with two tablespoons of low-fat cottage cheese: 85 calories
