Healthy – low calorie snack for the corn lover!

Have you ever heard of corn thins??   I stumbled upon these at a give away after a marathon my husband ran in.  They are pretty much

fat-free and have no gluten.  And as far a ingredients go there is only 3!  They have less than a gram of sugar and low sodium.  The down side is they do not contain much nutrition.  There is only a little fiber and protein.  But as far as a quick snack goes they are very tasty and a protein can be added with a little raw almond butter or a spread of your choice!  Now on a personal note they are very crunchy and make me feel I am eating something naughty and salty.  Now the serving size is just for two corn thins, but  with almond butter it is very filling and a great quick snack.  My kids gave it a thumbs up!

I consider my self one of the Queens of snacks.  What I usually look for is snacks that are high in fiber with some protein which helps to control my hunger.   Snacks that are relatively low in sugars, less than 7 grams unless it is natural.  I also search for items that are under 200 calories, preferably 100 calories or I do not consider them snacks.  I also try to kid test the snacks I feature but some of the things I really enjoy my kids have not developed a pallet for.  I am also not getting paid to try these snacks and purchase them myself in most cases!  However I wish I was!
