Find out which low calorie snacks Dr. Oz recommends.
While the concept of a 100-calorie snack is very tempting, not all snacks are created equal. As food journalist and author Mark Schatzker discovered, highly-processed foods will make you feel hungrier faster than nutritious fiber-filled foods. In some cases, certain snack packs can actually lead to people packing on the pounds, since these pre-portioned treats give the illusion of control and lead to overeating down the road. If you are looking for a healthy snack for minimal calories, follow our formula: protein + fiber and a bit of indulgence. Here are our five picks.
Sour Cream and Onion Pea-Corn
Want to take your popcorn to the next level? You have to try sour cream and onion pea-corn. Perfect for those of us who crave salt, this treat has protein, thanks to the freeze-dried peas, plenty of fiber in the form of air-popped popcorn, and indulgence from the sour cream and onion spice powder. These flavors are reminiscent of sour cream and onion chips, but in a much healthier package.
