Are you tempted to buy those 100-calories snack packs that you see in the grocery store? The processed cookies, snacks and chips are a good idea in theory, but many of them are filled with unhealthy ingredients and they leave you feeling less than satisfied at snack time.  It's easy to eat too many packs and consume too many calories.

Have you ever thought of making your own diet-friendly snack packs at home?

You'll save money and save time if you use single-serving containers to pre-pack your own snacks. You can even use some of my favorite healthy kitchen hacks to make them more quickly.  Then store the snack packs in your pantry or refrigerator so they are easy to grab on the go.

These are some of my favorite snack packs. The calorie counts are approximate as serving sizes of fresh fruits and veggies can vary. If you have a snack idea that you want to share, post it on my Facebook page and I'll add it to the list.
