100 Calorie “Packs”

You know those 100-Calorie Packs you see all over the place? Usually tiny sacks of cookies or crackers or Goldfish or nuts? I have never purchased these myself, but I know they’re out there, and can be useful for calorie-counting dieters. I’ve also seen them quite often in my students’ school lunches.

I stumbled upon an article on foodnetwork.com today featuring 100-calorie-amounts of different whole foods. Cheese, for instance, and raspberries, broccoli, cashews and green beans are featured because those are the types of foods we ought to be eating (rather than very small amounts of Oreos and Chips Ahoy!). Click on the 100-calories-worth of raspberries below to take you to the article.

And if you don’t feel like eating raw brussels sprouts as a snack, this article at greatist.com has 31¬†recipes for 100-calorie snacking.
