Tasty Snacks That Won’t Spoil Your New Year’s Weight Loss Resolution
The holidays are over and it’s time to shed those extra pounds and start getting ready for bikini season. But just because you’re watching what you eat doesn’t mean that you have to starve or sacrifice flavor. There are plenty of healthy snacks and treats that are deliciously guilt-free!
Arctic Zero Frozen Desserts – Did you ever think that you could eat your way slimmer with ice cream?! Well your dreams have come true because Arctic Zero is considered a “super dessert,” providing top nutrition and possessing health benefits without the drawbacks of conventional ice cream. These low-calorie, gluten-free, kosher, non-GMO, lactose-intolerant friendly, low glycemic treats are light, fresh and totally indulgent. Arctic Zero offers pints of ice cream, with flavors like chocolate peanut butter, coffee, cookies and cream, mint chocolate and strawberry, as well as chocolate-covered ice cream bars (my particular favorite) in orange, strawberry, vanilla and chocolate.
Popcorn Indiana’s FIT – Prepare to be amazed by this popcorn. With only 40 calories or less and just two grams of fat per cup, FIT is absolutely packed with flavor. No longer do you have to turn to greasy chips and crisps to get mouthwatering flavors like Sea Salt, Parmesan & Herb, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Onion Dijon. And the best part of it all is that FIT contains whole grains, is certified Gluten Free by the GFCO, uses non-GMO corn and is free of artificial flavoring and preservatives.

KIND Bars – If you’re looking for something healthy to curb your appetite between meals, you need to try KIND bars. These snacks contain simple ingredients that you can see and pronounce and no outrageous label claims hiding dirty secrets like sugar alcohols. Also, each bar is packed with whole almonds, pecans and peanuts – a natural source of omega-3’s that will actually make your heart stronger and fend off heart disease. And if you’re looking for something a bit sweeter (who doesn’t like a bad boy now and then?) Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan are coated in decadent dark chocolate and they contain only five grams of sugar or less per bar!
