In the United States, cardiovascular disease — including heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure — is responsible for one out of every three deaths. It is the number one killer of American women and men, and it is a leading cause of serious illness and disability.
I don’t know about you but I am a major snacker! I could sit and eat a whole bag of tortilla chips with some salsa. Snacking is the hardest part of my diet to keep in check. Junk food always seems so much more convenient and tasty. But I’ve made a goal to change up my snack habits so today I’m sharing delicious and nutritious snacks under 200 calories.
My goal with this list was to find things that are easy and convenient while also being totally satisfying and filling. You won’t find any 100 calorie packs of Oreos on this list, because let’s be honest, who in the world is full after 5 mini Oreos anyway? 😉

1. 1 apple with 1 tablespoon almond butter – 170 calories
