Part of losing weight or even maintaining your weight includes knowing what foods you can grab for a quick, healthy, and great tasting snack. With the holidays just around the corner, there are bound to be some fast paced days in your schedule and times when you need to eat something quick without overindulging in terms of calories.

Today I’m going to share one of my favorite snacks with you. And the beauty of this snack is that it’s portable, can be taken with you to work if you have a refrigerator, or packed in a lunch bag with a cold pack. Possibly the best thing about this snack is that it also has some protein in it, which can help you feel satisfied after eating it and keeps you feeling full for longer.

My vote for today’s best snack is for:

Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Stickssargento_reduced_fat_sharp_cheddar_cheese

You can enjoy these Sargento Cheddar Cheese Sticks either alone (one is only 60 calories) or pair it with a low fat healthy type of cracker. I particularly like a Rice Cracker which I will tell you about in another article, but I think once you try these you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was at how good these snacks taste. Looking at the nutrition label as well you’ll be amazed that comparing these snacks to some of the other snacks (at least in my grocery aisle) I found that these have about one half the calories of some of the other brands. So this is a good bang for your calorie buck. The one drawback of this particular product is that there are only certain grocery stores that carry them in my area. So I always make it a point to shop at the store that carries these, and I have been known to buy several packages at a time so that I am never without a quick, easy, fast, and delicious tasting snack. If you’d like to find out where you can get these in your area, here is a link where you can Find the Healthy Snack . Once you click on the link you will choose the Sargento Reduced Fat/Light Cheese Selection in the product drop down box, and under variety select Reduced Fat/Light Cheese. Then under the specific product choose Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Snacks and type in your zip code to find grocers in your area who carry this product.
