Healthy Low Cal Snacks

Postby Karnak » Wed Sep 17, 2008 12:50 pm

Just curious what everyone else is munching :

2 Ryvita's and Laughing Cow Light Cheese - high in fibre, filling, laughing cow is great for portion sizes and all up - 99cal
Santitarium Curios - sure its a breakfast food but at 126 calories it makes a nice protein (7.8g) and good fibre snack
Tin of Tuna - at 78calories and a whopping 17.7g of protein this fills you up and make standing at the sink at work smelling of catfood worth it.
Queens Maple Flavoured Syrup - (tastes like the real thing but sugar free !) over a crumpet - 87 cals and really yummy.
2 cups of airpopped popcorn with 1 tsp of icing sugar sifted over the top - tastes naughty but at around 70 cal's - isn't

I have laughing cow just about every day for lunch except I have it on Kavli crackers, I think it has become a bit of an addiction :lol: . Last night I had it with some sliced avocado and cracked pepper, I was in heaven. So much so I had it for lunch again today :P .

I love vita wheats, 9 grain sandwich size. 2 = 94 cals with vegimite. Also mini milo ice creams 53cals (from memory). Umm snack size turkish delights (Fry's) 50 cals. Snakata Pops Salt n Vinegar 102 cals. The pack is huge and its 1 serve. I am struggling to find these at the moment though. They used to have them at Coles, but not in the one near me anymore. They were in the biccie isle but them were moved to the chippy isle. Now they are gone!!!!

I'm with you Shalimar, it's good stuff!

I'm also loving Damora High Fibre crispbread from Aldi, only 96 calories for four of them. I find two with some cottage cheese is a good snack for under 100 cals.

I think I've found a rival for Lite Laughing Cow - Philly Cheese and Chives Mini tubs - each tub holds enough to do 4 ryvita's /crispbreads quite generously (so I use half a tub each time) and at 69cals a mini-tub its not a bad snack

I'll check them out next shopping day. I also buy the non lite laughing cow as they are flavoured but they are about 20 or so calories more. They come in mushroom, chive, paprika and plain. 2 of each flavour per packet.

Where does one find this laughing cow? I looked in Coles and couldn't find it!

I get it from both Coles and Woolies, Its in a round container and it has 8 portions to a pkt.
It is in the dairy section with the cheeses, usually in close proximity to the babybel cheeses :) .

You can also get the Picon brand, which doesn't need to be refrigerated, it's usually in the spreads aisle. It's often cheaper than Laughing Cow too - and exactly the same amount of calories! :D

I honestly can't tell the difference between the Picon and the Laughing Cow, they both taste exactly the same to me. :D

Ok got a new one (healthy yummy snacks) - Paddle Pop's MOO - icecreams. They are amazing and taste nothing like low fat icecreams.

Per icecream
87 Calories
2.8g of Fat
320mg Calcium (this is like 1/3 of daily calcium Levels.

They come in an 8 pack, quite decent serves (similar size to a magnum - no choc coating though) - highly recomend.
