Stretch your snacks part 1

I got this from Weight Watchers Weekly Magazine from February 28-March 6, 2010.

For about the same fat, calories, and fiber, you can have:

2 pretzel rods


1 serving of 94% fat free microwave popcorn and a handful of grapes


1 bowl of 0 points vegetable soup (anything tomato based but not creamy, and with a lot of veggies counts), 2 slices of whole wheat bread, and 2 tablespoons of store bought hummus

Each of these snack options are about equal in fat, calories, and fiber, and are relatively healthy for you, so when you feel like you need a snack, feel it out for how hungry you are before making a decision, and keep these options in mind.
