We need to be able to print these! But I think these are very doable snacks for me and my husband...I like the use of the black beans!

Some are very good snacks while others are very heavy in sodium content...the article was not thoroughly thought out for health...only calerories and fat.

Great snack ideas, I just wish there was an easy way to print them for reference. It would be nice if there was a printer-friendly summary at the end of the slideshow!

Won't eat SOY products if I can help it. BAD for the thyroid!. Flour tortillas are too high on the Glycemic index for me, as is popcorn. Give me more solid snacks...celery , carrots, apples!
