As I close in on my target weight and the one year mark since I began limiting calories, I think about my go-to snacks-- Minute Maid Soft Frozen Lemonade, Lo-cal pumpkin spice bread, Slow-churned vanilla ice cream and trail mix. Trail mix, in particular, seems to be natures perfect concoction. Peanuts, cashews, almonds, raisins and M&M's give me both the salt and sweet I crave without adding a single pound to my weight. At least, that's the way it seems.
For the record, I do supplement the trail mix I get from Sam's Club with craisins, more cashews, and dry roasted peanuts.
When I searched the Internet for trail mix articles, I found that some strongly railed against both M&M's and craisins in many trail mixes as unreasonable sources of sugar. My own results seem to contradict these reports. Sometimes a little sugar keeps me from eating a lot of sugar.
Finding go-to low-calorie snacks is vital to a successful weight-loss program. As a non-professional in nutritian and dietary matters, I highly recommend the perfect food.
