My friend Alisha, is a relatively new Weight Watcher who shares details of her journey along with Weight Watchers friendly meal plans on her blog, Meal Planning Mommies.
I love the resources she is compiling to help herself and other Weight Watchers be successful. A few weeks ago I shared a great Fast Food Survival Guide with SmartPoints for Weight Watchers she had compiled.
Well, she's done it again with a great list of Snacks with 4 SmartPoints or Less.
As I explained way back in 2014 when I compiled this list of 24 Healthy Snacks for Weight Loss, when you are desperate to lose weight, it's tempting to see how long you can go without eating.
Unfortunately, it's an idea that can backfire on you big time if you end up getting over-hungry and inhaling too much of whatever you can get your hands on.
That's where healthy snacks come in.
I'm not talking about mindless munching on junk. The key is to be strategic with your snacking to keep your hunger at bay, your blood sugar level and your thinking clear.
Smart Snacks for Weight Watchers with 4 SmartPoints or Less!
Some of my favorite snacks from her list include:
- ¼ cup fat-free black bean dip with fresh veggies (1SP)
- 1 Boca Original vegan veggie burger (1 SP)
- Hard Boiled Egg (2SP)
- 22 Pistachios (2SP)
- 1 pear, 1 Weight Watcher string cheese and 7 almonds (2SP)
- 3 cups light microwave popcorn (2SP)
- Apple slices with 1 tablespoon peanut butter (3SP)
- 3 ounces shrimp with 2 tablespoons cocktail sauce (3SP)
- 35 Plantar's Dry Roasted Peanuts (4SP)
- A slice of reduced-calorie whole wheat bread toasted with 1 tablespoon peanut butter and banana slices (4SP)
I also came across this great graphic of favorite low calorie real food snacks to really satisfy your hunger, all with about 100 calories (I went ahead and calculated the SmartPoints® too!)
