Healthy Snacks That Will Help You Lose Weight

Chips. Cookies. Crackers. They're hard to resist. But we all know that everything that tastes good isn't always good for us. Thankfully, these days it's pretty easy to replace "junk food" with healthy, wholesome and yummy snacks.  For example, since the beginning of the summer I eliminated most dairy and white sugar products from my diet. Adieu, Maison Kayser. Instead, my new regimen includes lots of water, berries, Greek yogurt, raw almonds, salmon, salads, avocados, pickles and hummus. And I dropped nearly 12 pounds in three months.


But I'm not totally munchie-free. And when it's time for a "treat" I opt for healthier snacks. Here are a few of my faves, courtesy of the Editor's Showcase Snack Attack and the Fancy Food Show:

Garden of Eatin' Blue Chips: It's hard to eat just one of these delicious, natural and organic blue tortilla chips. Great with guacamole, salsa or straight out of the bag.

Brownie Brittle: Only 120 calories in each six-piece serving. Comes in a variety of flavors like Salted Caramel, Chocolate Chip and Toffee Crunch.

Harvest Stone: Gluten-free has never tasted this good.  The Original cracker is a blend of brown rice, sesame and flax, and the Original Crispy Mix has roasted veggie multi-grain squares, savory multi-seed chips, roasted garlic popped chips, gluten free pretzels and corn chips with flax.

Viki's Granola:  The Original Honey is a blend of gluten-free oats, organic honey, almonds, pecans and unsweetened coconut void of refined sugar, filers and preservatives.

NuttZo: This is the world's only organic seven nut and seed butter, chocked full of cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and flax seeds.

Sweets & Beets Terra Chips: Made from real whole vegetables. What's not to love about a crisp combo of beet and sweet potato chips.

Nonni's Dark Chocolate Almond THINAddictives: Drizzled with dark chocolate and packed with whole almonds, this is the little cookie that could. Each box contains individually wrapped packs of two thins, only 80 calories or less.
