100 Calorie Snacks

If you've been keeping up with my blog, you know that March is national Nutrition Month and nutrition is important regardless of whether you are gluten-free or not. It's also important to maintain proper weight, get the proper nutrients for your body to stay healthy and prevent cardiovascular disease. Eating more fruits and veggies is not only good for you but it fills your tummy in a low calorie way! 1 cup of carrots fills my stomach fuller than a single serving of tortilla chips and is much better for me. So here is a list, from the website Fruits & Veggies More Matters, of 100 calorie snacks!

100-Calorie Comparison Chart

When you eat fruits and vegetables in place of other foods, you get MORE! Why? Because they are high in fiber and water and the volume (per calorie) is greater when compared to other foods.
Food Item Amount
Tortilla Chips 3/4 cup
Strawberries 2 cups
Soda 9 fluid ounces
Sliced Peppers 2 cups
Pretzels 1 ounce
Muffin 1 ounce (1 mini)
Lettuce, shredded 20 cups
Ice Cream (not premium) 3/8 cup
Fresh Blueberries 1 1/4 cup
Donut 3/8 whole
Cucumbers, sliced 7 cups
Chocolate Chip Cookies 2-2inch cookies
Cherry Tomatoes 4 cups
Cheese P-Nut Butter Snack Cracker 3
Cantaloupe Cubes 2 cups
Canned Peaches (in juice) 1 1/2 cup
Bagel 1/4 of 5 oz. bagel
Baby Carrots 2 cups
Apple Slices 2 cups
American Cheese (thin slices) 2 slices
100% Vegetable Juice 2 cups (16 fluid ounces)
100% Orange Juice 7 fluid oz.
