100 Calories of Satisfaction

Low-fat snacks may seem like a great addition to your healthy-eating regimen, but they can be problematic. Low on fat can also mean low on satisfaction, which in turn can send you back for seconds—and thirds—searching for that full and happy feeling. If that's the case for you, it's time to start curbing that craving with a low-calorie "dense" food. What's dense? Think foods that are high in water and/or fiber, like veggies, beans or whole grains. When you reach for your next snack, why not try one of these 100-calorie dense foods? They're light and satisfying—a combo that'll send your low-fat snack packing!
