3 More 100 Calories Snacks

Geese keep flying north past my house, so in honor of Mother Goose…yadda yadda yadda, let’s get to the food!

March 2014 0051. The Creamy: 1/3 cup of cottage cheese, a teaspoon of jam, and some berries.  To make cottage cheese, a chemical called rennin is added to milk and the proteins either clump together (curds) or stay liquid (whey).  Since we’re eating our curds and whey, I call it the Little Miss Muffet.

 

P10208772. The Crunchy: 1 Tablespoon of hummus and a plate full of vegetables.  Disclaimer: to keep the calories to 100, there should only be 10 carrots on the plate, but it sure is prettier this way!  I call it the Jack Sprat.  “Jack Sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean…”

 

2014 March 0073. The Vegetative: A peck of (non) pickled peppers.  Or about a dozen small sweet peppers if you’re counting.  I call it the Peter Piper. Pick yourself a peck and happy munching!
