Healthy Snacks: Something Crunchy
There are lots of fancy crackers on the shelf. But one of the best is an oldie but goodie: Reduced Fat Triscuits. Some of the newer crackers are either high in fat and saturated fat, or low in fiber (even some types that sound like they'd have plenty of fiber.)
In this list, you'll also find heart-healthy mixed nuts and two types of microwave popcorn that offer a more healthful option for all those popcorn addicts out there.
And, in case you like some protein along with your crunch, Bumble Bee Tuna now offers a fat- free tuna salad kit complete with low-fat wheat crackers. There's not much in the way of fiber, but the 9 grams of protein could be just what you need in a filling afternoon snack.
