Wanna snack? Here’s what it’s worth…

 

I’ve discovered a great piece of information that will answer your questions regarding snacking and what it will cost your waistline ;-).   We hear over and over again that the key to weight loss/healthy eating is feasting multiple times a day to keep your metabolism up, hence burning more calories.  But what snacks are good snacks and how much are they worth? 

Well wonder no more!  I stumbled on a site that housed this jackpot answer!  Journeywoman is a premiere travel resource (and much more) for women that has produced a breakdown of seemingly every snack known and assigned a calorie count to each.  So now you’re armed with what to pick up at the grocery store for home, work, and on the go! 

Snack on people!
