Thrifty Thursday: Snack Time

Yes, I realize it's not Thursday but you know how the garbage man's schedule gets pushed back a day when there's a holiday during the week?  I think my blog was thus pushed back by President's Day.

Today's nugget of wisdom is brought to you by the letter "S" as in

and Self
because Self Magazine threw out a list of 30 Healthy Snacks and since I haven't been able to stop snacking this week, it seemed like a good idea to read it. 

Of the 30, my favorites include:
1/4 cup hummus, 3 carrot sticks (80 calories)
1/4 cup Trader Joe's Chili con Queso, 18 baked tortilla chips (140 calories)
2 tbsp Better 'n Peanut Butter, 4 stalks celery (124 calories)
1/2 banana rolled in 1 tbsp frozen semisweet chocolate chips (123 calories)
Hmmm.  I'm noticing a pattern in combo foods.  Maybe that's reason I also like the following things mixed together:
Chocolate Chips in my cookies
Vodka in my tomato juice
French Onion dip on my SunChips.

Okay, those last three were sadly not on the healthy list, but if I could limit myself to 200 calories of any of them, you know they would be!

What snack (naughty or nice) do you love?
