I used to think that snacking had no place in a healthy diet.

But if you are anything like me, the minute you start counting calories, food is all you think about.  By the end of the day you’re downing a pint of ice cream like there’s no tomorrow.

Or you’re so hungry by dinner time, you eat pasta for four.

This week I planned my snacks the way I plan my meals.

Plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, low fat cheese, crackers, nuts, and I made an extra large batch of these healthier chocolate dipped strawberries.
