So now that I’m an adult I’m realizing I can’t eat whatever I want anymore. In high school I could eat everything in sight without it ever showing on the scale. Now I look at a donut and gain a size. Now it seems like the simple answer is to eat only salads and raw veggies and you’ll be fine…… unless you have Temporomandibular Joint, also known as TMJ.
If you have this, as I do, even baby carrots are too hard to consume. Anything that requires lots of chewing doesn’t really work. So while browsing list of low calorie snack, I took note of things that were easy on the jaw and were easy to measure. Here’s my top 9 snacks, 3 salty, 3 sweet, and 3 refrigerated.
In case you can’t see the picture, here it is written out:
Lime Tortilla Chips: 7 chips – 140 cal
Pretzels: 20 pretzels – 100 cal
Goldfish crackers – 1/2 cup – 140 cal
Marshmallows: 2/3 cup – 100 cal
Dark Hershey Kisses: 4 kisses – 80 cal
