If you’re crav­ing some­thing salty and crunchy, put away the Ruf­fles and pop open a con­tainer of nuts. Peanuts, pis­ta­chios, wal­nuts, al­monds, as well as seeds, such as pump­kin or sun­flower, are good com­bi­na­tions of healthy fats and pro­tein. Although nuts are packed full of pro­tein, fi­bre and healthy fats, keep por­tions small. Just 14 al­monds or 20 pis­ta­chios equals 100 calo­ries, the caloric sweet-spot for snack­ing (source: We­bMD). And keep sodium lev­els in check by choos­ing un­salted va­ri­eties. Also, pop­corn or rice cakes are good op­tions to sat­isfy a crunchy crav­ing. Three cups of air-popped pop­corn (hold the salt and but­ter) equals 100 calo­ries.
