Take a bite of health…

Posted by on Tue, February 15th, 2011 at 4:00 pm


Hey there!

For those of you still trying to keep up with your New Year’s resolution of losing weight or eating healthier, I found a great article – 100 Healthy Snacks Under 200 Calories. Stick to these, and you’ll be shedding pounds in no time!
Pear and String Cheese
- I eat string cheese everyday, without fail. Throw a pear into the mix and you’ve got an easy-to-eat, easy- to -clean-up, delicious snack!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
- ’cause you can never go wrong with a little PB&J! Keep it healthy and nutritious with light, whole grain or wheat bread, and slash some fat and calories by measuring out one tablespoon of natural peanut butter and two tablespoons of sugar free jelly.
Instant Oatmeal
- “Instant oatmeal makes a perfect sweet and fulfilling desk snack food, but many brands have way too much sugar. That’s why we love Quaker’s Lower Sugar Instant packets. Just add water in a microwave mug, and you’ll be back at your desk — and eating — in just under 3 minutes.”

Microwave Soup Cup
-Convenient, delicious, filling, and ready to eat in minutes!
Popcorn
- Who says you need a movie to eat popcorn? Microwave yourself a single serving of 100-calorie pack popcorn.
Chips and Salsa
- Be sure to get baked tortilla chips, as they help reduce the calorie and fat content. Sprinkle some reduced fat cheese on top, and you’ve got some homemade nachos!
Chocolate Waffles
- For all you chocolate lovers out there – grab yourself an EGGO Nutri Grain Whole Wheat waffle and top it off with a tablespoon of Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread. Mmm…my mouth is watering already.

What’s your favorite healthy snack?

I really think that America should adopt this sport from Korea… Brilliant idea, right? I mean seriously – how did we not think of this first? Mixing the Tour de France with Black Swan? Okay, yea…maybe America’s just not ready for this intense, competitive “sport,” yet. ~TSGal P.S. – What is this championship called? If ... Read More »

This is Hal from Team Swagbucks, and I officially have baseball fever, especially now that pitchers and catchers have reported to spring training.

Valentine’s Day is the day to celebrate love. But, what does love mean? Well, this question was posed to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, and some of their profound answers really blew me away. I wanted to share some of their responses with you: “When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over ... Read More »
