WW snack hacks that work for me

Our challenge this past week was to spend time in the grocery store scanning items to learn point values associated with various foods. It was an eye-opening experience! We were tasked with finding snacks with point values = 3 points or less that we would actually eat. No more cheese/peanut butter crackers for me!

Here’s my snack attack list:

Raw veggies: Grape tomatoes, baby carrots, sugar snap peas, cucumber slices

Fruit: Berries, sliced apple, banana

Dairy/frozen: Light string cheese (2 points), fat-free cottage cheese and plain nonfat greek yogurt*
Yasso chocolate bar (3 points)

Prepackaged snacks:

Fruit cups packed in water or own juice (0-2 points)
100 calorie packs of nuts (3 points)
Pretzels (1 oz twists or 8 honey wheat braids) (3 points)
Simply Nature Sea Salt Organic popcorn (Aldi) (1 point per cup)
Elevation Snack Advance Peanut Butter Fudge Crisp (Aldi) (1 bar = 3 points)
Cheerios – 1 cup (3 points)

*Add 1 tsp confectioner’s sugar to 1 cup of greek yogurt to counter the tartness. (1 pt)

One of my favorite hacks when my sweet tooth comes calling is to eat a Yasso chocolate bar OR make a parfait from plain nonfat greek yogurt, 1 tbsp Hershey’s syrup and raspberries. Either treat is a mere 3 points.

I carry bottled water, assorted cheerios and a 100 calorie pack of nuts with me when out running errands. If the weather is cool, I’ll take a snack bar (chocolate melts in the heat). This keeps my hunger pangs at bay. I love popcorn, but it gets stuck in my teeth, so I only eat it at home.

Do you have any favorite low calorie snacks to share?

  1. I buy the little 1 cup bone broth cartons. I can heat them in a mug and get 10g protein.
