Delicious Dipped Pretzels make a fantastic snack without causing you to feel like you are restricting yourself in terms of portion size or denying yourself some of your favorite foods. Melt one half cup of semi sweet chocolate in the microwave until it is just melted. It takes two minutes to melt the chocolate and see to it that you stir it up really well before you try using it. Dip low-sodium into the melted chocolate to coat them and then lay them in one layer on parchment paper. Let them cool at room temperature or put them in the fridge for roughly 20 minutes. Losing weight can be a difficult task if you are not prepared.

Yummy Tortilla Chips are a good snack that you can put together at home without much work. Tortilla chips, when you get them from the shop, are normally loaded down with an excessive amount of salt and aren't actually very good for you. For this yummy snack, you'll use corn tortillas to put together your own chips. Slice at least ten corn tortillas in 6 parts. Put the corn tortilla pieces on to a baking sheet and then spritz them with a spray made from canola oil, chili powder, cumin and salt. Coat the tortilla pieces totally and then bake them in an oven at 350 degrees for abut 15 minutes. Give the chips time to cool before trying to them.

You can prepare your very own caramel corn! You are probably thinking that there is no way that caramel corn can be healthy for you since it is loaded with sugar and calories. Fix this healthy buy yummy recipe instead. In a large pot, melt two tablespoons of butter and blend in two tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt, and a tablespoon of water. Try using a whisk to mix it all and then put seven cups of air popped popcorn into the large pot. If you enjoy lightly salted peanuts, feel free to add an about an ounce of those also. Mix all the ingredients together until the popcorn (and nuts if they're added) are evenly coated and then let the whole lot cool before consuming it.

If you are fine doing a little research, you can find all sorts of healthy recipes that give you the tastes you crave but have a lot less calories and unhealthy ingredients. There are a lot of great tasting choices for nourishing snacks out there. You simply need to have patience to search them out and prepare them yourself. Trying to stay healthy and fit doesn't need to be tough. It's totally doable!
