Pretzels Healthy for Snacking

Rather than fudge-out on plain old pretzels, check out the hard and crusty big-boy, sourdough pretzels. One variety that we especially love is 'Zels', discovered at a tiny convenience store on a fly-by-drop-n-go. 

For calories and zero grams of fat, these little buggers take an unusually LONG time to eat. Enjoy with a diet vanilla soda and oh my, you're in Diet Heaven.

Whole Grain Bagels, a Healthy Choice Anytime of Day

If you simply can't tolerate breakfast, try to incorporate a healthy mid-morning snack. A small banana, a few strawberries, a small bagel, or even half a bagel  - all of these make excellent snacks that will help keep you from tipping the scales during lunch time.

An added Diet Plus? A smart snack will start your metabolism burn for the day.
