100 Calorie Snacks for Vegetarians
If you are following a calorie-controlled diet, it's very handy to have a list of snacks you can dip into without guilt, and units of 100 calories make the calculations very straightforward.
There are a number of commercial snack providers aware of this now, and producing their brands in pre-packaged 100 calorie portions, which can be a huge help to every dieter. Of course, the cash cost of the item might be higher, not to mention the environmental and packaging cost - but you need to weigh up each purchase for the convenience and help that it gives you in complying with the diet you are following, and ready made 100 calorie snacks might be very helpful in some instances.
You should remember however that it's not rocket science and you can easily create your own ready-to-go pre-counted snacks by repackaging - if you use reusable tupperware containers and larger bought portions you are saving money and the planet - it all depends on whether you can safely save YOURSELF from the munchies at the time!
But think about it, as the maths isn't hard...
120g bag of walnuts, = 785 kcal (eek!)
so 120/785 x 100 = 15.2g walnuts, makes a 100 kcal snack.
So you get your bag of walnuts, your kitchen scales, a stack of babyfood size tupperware pots and voila...! Hopefully some readers have by now worked out that you get nearly 8 100 calorie snacks out of this bag of nuts.
For a heartier snack, use bigger tubs and a lower calorie food!
Anyway, if you don't fancy burning brain calories doing the math, here are a selection of easy 100 calorie snacks you can enjoy as part of your vegetarian low calorie diet.... some more healthy than others, but they won't break the calorie bank at least.
There is now a whole diet based around units of 100 calories - this is very simple to follow using the principles above, and if you are disciplined about measuring and weighing this could be the calorie counted diet for you
- the ebook is downloadable and inexpensive, and well worth checking out.
