Fresh Ideas to Conquer Your Cravings

We all do it! We resolve to snack less, eat better, and exercise more. But when stress is mounting, it's so easy to reach for a quick bite that's empty of nutrition and full of calories.

Recently, my husband asked me to assemble a list of snacks that he can enjoy guilt-free. We all have different ideas about good nutrition, and what's healthy and what isn't. If you scan this list, I'm sure you'll find a few snack pairs that will satisfy your family.

Since my husband loves his chips and salsa, they're definitely included. It's up to you to decide whether to offer them to your hungry loved ones between meals.
